The test knitting is done, washed, dried, and awaiting seaming — which will probably happen over the weekend. I wonder what the chances are that the mood'll stick for a bit and I could have a few more new sweaters yet this spring. Heh.
Meanwhile, unable to settle on anything else, hexies are very satisfying right now! The blues-greens are from some uncategorized and, I think undocumented, extra-curricular Project Spectrum dyeing. I'm lovin' that darker shade! Also, the two-tone hexagons are some of my favorites right now.
I should get a group shot… and count. I'm not sure how many I have finished. Maybe tonight. My friend Kate is bringing her Color Affections (one finished, one in-progress) to Knit Night tonight so I can take some photos, so the camera will be out.
Yesterday was the last official day of events for the 5th Annual Fox Cities Book Festival. Last week, my book club went to hear Kris Radish talk mostly about her latest (her 10th) book, Tuesday Night Miracles. She lives in Florida now, but was born and raised in Wisconsin — not too far from me — and, wow, we've sure raised up some great writers and I'm so happy I've been able to hear people like Kris, Lesley Kagen and Michael Perry read from own work and talk about their books. I also went to hear Bill Strickland speak about his book, Make the Impossible Possible; soft-spoken and humble, he is full of great ideas!
Next year, my husband may be in the book festival line-up! That's all I can say about that right now, so just nudge the thought way back in your head and I'll let you know when it's time to get excited again.
Don't forget… Knit Night tonight!
