I’m feeling all sorts of R-a-n-d-o-m today.  Not like any of my posts have followed a strict beginning, middle and end sequence anyway.

– I’m so freakin’ happy it’s Friday! I had a pretty busy week and finally my on the road phase of my job is drawing to a close.  Today was the final day of back to back presentations.  I can now return to a more normal work day.  This gives me and my car much joy.

– The scarf for Julie is coming along fabulously. I can’t stop looking at it. The dying that manos is famous for is amazing to me.  Plus the feel!  It’s so squishy! I’m so happy I went up the needle size.  I’m on to the next ball and expect a solid finish.  Just in time for her marathon!  Ahh scarves they are just such an immediate release.

– Rusted Root, after having a false start is also well on it’s way.  I’m just above the shaping and I think it’s gonna fit!!  It’s become a nice, relaxing, meditative, tv along knit.  The pattern is clearly written (even though I managed to get confused, it’s all me folks, allll me) and the leaf motif is cute too.  I would have maybe decrease the stitches differently but I’m working it like the pattern showed me and perhaps I’ll change it up a bit if I make another.  Fab job Zypher ladies!

– My needles have come in so I can finally finish the BOLERO!  I’m worried though about the picking up of stitches.  I feel like I’m going to need a few cups of coffee to concentrate.  I do have plans to make another bolero for my mother. 

– For all my Hoboken area knitters: we’re trying to make the Hoboken SnB knitting group grow so here’s my plug for all my blog readers.  Tuesday nights starting at 7:30 at the Frozen Monkey Cafe off of Washington Street between 5th and 6th!  Come and play! If you’re just visiting Hoboken, come too!

– Lastly, HELLO RHEINBACK!!! Oh my goodness, I’m almost in denial that it’s this weekend.  Granted I won’t have my Rusted Root, but I do have my socks from long ago AND my scarf.  I feel like it’s going to the North Pole and meeting Santa Claus! I am worried that it’s going to be pure sensory overload.  I’m traveling up and back from Hoboken with a friend so it’s a full day fibery road trip. 

I hope everyone has a nice, relaxing, fun filled weekend!
