Well it is just cold everywhere today!!! Including in PDX. My Mom and I went out today…coldcoldcold!!!!
So, after finshing my homework (or, at the very least, my English paper…I still need to work on that darn FAFSA….) I will watch Northanger Abbey (see what Meg Cabot thought about it here) and knit on July Shawl WIP 1_08.
By the way, this is what I finished this weekend. It’s my Recycled Sweater. I bought a 50/50 wool angora blend sweater at Value Village between Semester last January…(amoung 2 other sweaters) and only finished it now!
I LOVE this book…I’m so glad that they’re showing Jane Austen stuff on PBS on Sunday nights. I read it for my AP English Lit Class, and LOVED it (I think I’m really getting into this Georgian era/gothic romance thing).
So today I went to the library to pick up some stuff I had on hold, and I got Stefanie Japel‘s Fitted Knits. Oh, man does this book kick butt!!! It has a ton of things I want to make…most especially the Elizabeth Bennet Cabled Cardigan. It’s so pretty. It has things I love:
1) seed stitch
3) knit top-down
5) Oh, just love it!!!
Anyway, it looks like the yarn called for for the smallest size would cost almost $130…so I’m going to look in thrift shops for a sweater to frog and re-knit into this…
Hopefully, this weekend I can post pictures of my first FO of 2008 (gaawk!!! 2008 ALREADY…..)
