NO FOs AGAIN
I know, I'm super lame. I'm getting there, I swear.
Sunken Treasure Shawl - Is nearing the end. More than halfway done on the edging. Please visit Ravelry page for notes on how this shawl was constructed
Johnson Baby Blanket - The end is in sight on this one too. Just keep knitting, just keep knitting...
Bandwagon Blanket - Only a drop in the proverbial bucket here, but I am still thoroughly enjoying it
Contrasty Socks - Don't judge me for casting on a different sock before doing the second of the purple ones from the last episode. I just needed a change of color on my needles, and it is MUCH easier to do a different sock than a different shawl.
I have forgotten to film spinning this week. Which means that next week I will have more to show you. I can't believe myself, I was just so excited about showing off the new yarn.
If you want contact information for the places I purchased things, Just give me a holler. I'm too lazy to link all the things, but I will get them in my stash page soon.

I'm fairly certain that I haven't introduced anything new in this episode.
Forgive me, but I never got a chance to publish the same day I filmed, as the public computer at my apartment complex office was occupied.
I'll do my very best to get everything covered, but IF I have forgotten something please give me a shout, and I will be happy to answer any questions you might have about my projects.
So, where can you find me??

My Granny squares are just THIS typical open square pattern, and I'm up to FIFTY-THREE at the time of publishing.
My Robin's Nest is chugging along. I am quickly running out of yarn, so I will probably be casting off much quicker than I really intended to, but as you can see the thing is enormous and I've added a couple more rows since filming.
NO I still haven't touched Steven's socks, except to move them out of the basket so I could start thinking about edging my squares. (I need to stick the yarn on a long needle so it will spin freely when I pull more yarn.
The spinning was neglected during my week at Fort Hood, and basically everything else.
Follow me on Instagram for real-time updates on things like my blankets and spinning. I am much more active there as well. I have my setting to private, but I allow nearly everyone who requests.

I'm afraid that's it. I'm very boring right now, but I'm going to be casting on something before I go to bed tonight, hopefully that means good things for the next episode and more interesting show notes next time as well.

All the same old projects, so I'm just going to direct you to the Show Notes for Episode 3.
Sorry about this short boring-ish episode, y'all. I just wanted to do a quick update and re-establish my beginning of the week episode publishing after having a late one last week.

Somewhere between home and Fort Hood, I'm dying to work on my thing some more but I just know that as soon add I'm in the middle of the row my bus will arrive and force me to stop in the middle of the needle-which I hate to do, as my dpns already leave a chance of losing stitches.
Hopefully I can get home and get some rest tonight before work tomorrow.

That's what I'm doing right now. I've discovered the destash tag on Etsy and i can get all the scrap yarn i want to start trying out the fair isles patterns i want to do.
I also casted on a little hamster plush today, i just have to figure out what i want to do for the eyes and the stuffing.
In other news, it seems like every person i know who was single is now getting engaged. Very frustrate, so annoy. I have to pretend that I'm sooooo happy for them when I really just want to barf. The one guy betrayed a good friend of mine. The other was dead set on marrying me for about two seconds.
I just hate people, because they use social media to more or less compete it's like a never ending high school reunion. And i just can't understand my attachment to these people who meant nothing to me when I saw them everyday, now i haven't seen them in two and a half years and I'm affected by all these little things that i shouldn't give a rat's ass about.
Anyway i have my yarn and my needles, and I'm creating tons of things. I just want a less mindless pattern so i don't have to think so much about these dumb things that bother me.

Several words, actually.
I've picked knitting up again because I find great joy in creating things, and even more when those things are useful.
I am growing bored with simple stockinette patterns and garter stitches, so I've finally joined Ravelry and found my way to the Nymphalidea shawl. It's everything I want in my next project. A different shape, a little bit of lacy looking edge, and TWO COLORS. I've tried the pattern with some scrap yarn and I think I've pretty much got it down, so I'm getting ready to pull a couple skeins from my stash and get going.
But there is a roadblock. Balling the yarn. I HATE HATE HATE knitting off of a skein. It's not so bad if they're center pull, but as my luck would have it, of the colors I chose one was and the other was not. And of course being the oddball I am I have to have continuity, so I'm balling up both of these skeins. And this means that I have to unwind the one skein from the outside. I know, first world problems, right?
Anyhow, I'm going to finish winding this ball so I can go lay down, it's nearly 2 am and I have got to get back on a semi normal sleep schedule, and my back is killing me.
Link to the pattern here, since my phone is fighting me.
