✿♬ﾟ+.(｡◡‿◡)♪.+ﾟ♬✿。*The Master Composer Series: Mozart on Spotify*
Hello to you on this third Sunday of August. How often do you listen to music while at home? When I cook for example, I need my favorite jams – from Demi and Beyonce to synthesizer pop or Hidden Beach’s jazzed up hip hop. However when I read blogs, I need to have classical music on. It helps puts me in the zone. I’ve been refining my Spotify lists of classical because I don’t like the tracks where there’s operatic singing. I need straight instruments.
Well guess what? Tremendous progress on my two WIP’s:
I took a pic of my Ravellenic beanie standing up with the yarn cake inside to hold it up. I’m at least 60% done. This Wayfarer Hat pattern by Carol E. Herman is awesome. The stitch patterns give my soft-brushed project wonderful texture. Her pattern is so easy to follow. While the design may look slight complicated, beginning knitters would have no trouble knitting this up. I know the Olympics end today and obviously I won’t be done, but I just don’t care. I have fun clicking away on this WIP; it’s soothing to my soul.
Wowza! Would you look at this:
Last week I showed you about one and a half inches of honey. This week, I have about three-fourths of the first skein left! Monday’s hip hop class and standing in line Thursday for two hours and 40 minutes allowed me to get major progress on this scarf.
BTW, yep, you read that right; Cupcake’s school has an intramural sports program that is run by a retired teacher/coach of that school. Sports like golf, tennis, badminton, archery, track & field, etc. are taught for fun. You have to have this paperwork filled out and sign-ups started at 9 a.m. Some parents got in line at 6! Jellybean and I got in line at around quarter to eight. She counted the number of ppl ahead of us – 75. We were done with getting our papers checked, signing the tween up for archery and track, and paying by 10:20 a.m. Hell yeah, only a devoted mum would do that for her child! I am really excited for my 7th grader.
Okay, back to my Wool & Company scarf…
Knitting with my Addi Turbos is fine. My wool-alpaca glides easily over them. The excess cable of course curls up which is a pain but man, my stitches are even which I really like. I’m a lot happier knitting this project.
So I’m most likely going to dig into the second skein of honey. I know I have 66 more yards than what was used by Purl Soho for their scarf’s middle section. I don’t know if I should use up the second skein or what. So let’s have a little poll:
Can’t wait to see what you decide. You have until next Sunday when I work on YOP1617 Week 9’s post. Off to read other participants’ posts. You can check them out here. TTYL.
