Plots and Plans
So I’ll be heading to a Superbowl Party on Sunday, (me and everyone one else on the planet likely). Football is actually the only major sport I have no feelings for or understanding of. So instead I’m planning on what to bring to knit. And in planning what to bring to knit I went through a couple of my knitting books and caught sight of patterns I like and things I had planned to make for others and myself. So in conjunction with Stash Bust ’10 will be, my earliest Christmas knits ever.
Well I am not starting them soon, I still have a Dalek to finish but I tend to have theme years. This year though I didn’t noticed till right now seemed to be Who themed. Be it knit or Polymer. Last year was hat, scarf and mitten sets or some adjustment of that.
But I think next year will be the year of Christmas stockings. Likely filled stockings. But most likely they will be in colors other than red though I have a ton of red yarn, we’ll see what happens. I also fell behind on the geek ornaments that I was working on though I do have a Dalek and A tardis. There is no K9, Red Shirts, Science officers, capes, or Cowls.
I also have a vague October deadline to make the Marvel scarf as that is when this year’s NYC ComicCon is happening. I also had hoped to hit San Diego’s ComicCon this year but the whole lack of employment makes that much less likely.
I made it to Wine and Knitting tonight at Gotham Fine Yarns, and met some new knitters, had wine, and DID NOT purchase any yarn. And there was a sale. And another sale. And a discount if your items were being purchased for the Ravelympics or maybe it was a discount later? No idea. I didn’t buy anything and understanding the sales would have made me sad and tempted to buy Noro Cash Iroha by the pound.
