Still At It!

Hello all! Just a really quick update to show that I am still here!

School has started, and right now I'm taking a quick break from my online class to do a row or two on mom's shawl. Looks like a blob, right?

I know it'll look better when it's blocked, but I just want it finished at this point! I'm only halfway through clue 4, and have had to add my third ball of yarn to it. Maybe I'll get it done sometime this year!

Hope everyone's having fun around Tat land. Hope I can come to visit again really soon! (Bookmarks, anyone? ;))

Gearing up for school!

I start back school next week. Since I will be there all day long (from 9:30 am 'till around 8:00 pm) I've started trying to get up some meal plans so I can pack my lunch and a snack. Today, I made some rice and made some rice balls, where each ball is 1/3 of a serving.

.. Except this one..

They're in the freezer right now (except for the large one, hehe!) so all I'll have to do is put them in my box and go.

Will have some other crafty goodness sometime soon. Been trying to get ready and it's taking all my time!

Clue 3 down!

It took me a few days to get to this point, but I believe it was totally worth it. I did not get it ready in time for Mom's birthday, but she says that it is fun just watching me work on it.

.. and work on it I did. I took it to work tonight and ended up making a mistake on the first row of clue 4. >.< I need to learn to keep count and not look around at all the boxes in the back!!

And yes, it's another phone pic, but I didn't take my camera to work today.. lol

Clue 2, complete!

And I've already started on clue 3..

Had to rip back and start the clue again, but it's working out better this time (perhaps because I'm using markers? hmm..)

Sorry for the phone pic -- out of batteries at the moment! lol

Knit like the wind!!

OK, so that's not really how it's going, however I find myself in the midst of a deadline and it's how I feel I should be knitting.

Mom's birthday is this Friday. FRIDAY!! I had let my time slip away, and as such have found myself woefully behind on what I need to be working on and what I actually work on. So, I found this pattern while on Ravelry and decided it would be a nice gift for Mom.

Paton's Kroy Sockwight Yarn; Brown Rose Marl

As of right now, I'm on row 43/210; not too bad if I say so myself, though it is a half-circle and I have a LONG way to go..

I'm on clue #2 (it was a MKAL), so I think I've done pretty good for just two and a half hours work, right?

No new tatting to share right now, though I do have some new motifs that are ready to be blocked and photographed.

Happy Tatting, all! ^^
