Random Updates

Alright, so it's been a little while since my last blog post - almost a week, geez! - but to tell the truth, I don't have that much of an update for you, just a blog post of randomness.  It was my husbands' 30th birthday yesterday, so from wednesday on, I was cleaning, shopping, baking, knitting, working on my magazine, and the list goes on.  Weekends are always a bit slower for me, work-wise.  Maybe because DH takes the weekends off, so we try to do things together, or there's just this air of "relax, it's the weekend, do nothing!", so it's difficult to get into the swing of things.

Anyway, here are my knitting updates:  As many people may already know, I have my first paying project, from a friend who's supporting me in my endeavors and business-oriented goals.  I sent her a few blanket styles this morning by email, so I should be getting the green light once she makes her choice.   The wool is already chosen, and bought.  It's a beautiful blue, almost a periwinkle color, called True Blue Denim from Phentex.  It's Worsted (type of yarn), so it's perfect for bigger projects like blankets.  So more on that once I have the actual pattern.  Pictures, of course, will be forthcoming in the next 2 weeks or so, once I have enough on the needles to photograph.

My Patchwork Throw now has 14 hexagons.  Still going strong, though I'm also working on my

Door Catch-all: I've knit about 6" in a yarn that has 2 different shades of blue, so it looks strippey, which is awesome.  I wasn't expecting the stripe effect, but if goes really nicely, and looks great.

I also have another prospective buyer.  Crazily enough, it's my friend's boyfriend.  He would like a scarf, in red, blue and black.  No pattern on that yet, but he would look great in some unusual patterns, so I sent some his way to make a choice, if he really is serious about the scarf.  I think he is, but I'm not going to write him down in my ledger just yet.  You never know, it could jinx it!  Which reminds me, I have to go correct my ledger entrance for my friend.  She wants to pay more for her blanket than I had originally asked for.  I have awesome friends!
