Next Steps

Hello! Here’s an update. The surgery has been scheduled. I’ve already gone to my pre-op appointment. Things seem to be ok now. I have about a week and a half until the 23rd. Going to miss Halloween, Kumoricon, Jonathan’s birthday, Thanksgiving, and possibly Christmas. =(

All in all, it could be worse. I was originally planned to be under the Monday after Thanksgiving. =/ at 6am…so yeah. Not super duper first choice. Which is totally fine, but they ob/gyn office was nice enough to double check with the doctors to see if I could get scheduled earlier. So yay! That’s where I’m at now.


Knitting Projects in the Works:

Short sleeve top. Knit with Koigu yarn. I’ve never heard of this yarn before, but omg is it squishy! The color pallet is a little bright for me, but IDC it will be perfect for spring next year! The pattern I used is by Oh May! designs. I don’t think it is up on Ravelry yet, but once it is I will come back and edit this post.

Long sleeve open cardigan. Finally getting around to using the Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran my aunt Debbie gave me. Har har. Not Debbie Bliss. Anyways, it’s  a cool toned grey, so I’ve paired it with 8oz of handspun I tried to make in a similar weight, but it ended up kind of bulky. It still works though. The pattern I’m using is called Crosscountry by Alicia Plummer. In aran weight yarn it is a quick knit. I’m using my colored handspun for the center back detail and the textured stripe around the waist.

Knitting Projects Finished:

Pom hat. I recently picked up an aran weight merino by Hedgehog fibers. It’s a quick little reverse knit hat with subtle cable details and a vegan pompom I picked up at Pearl Fiber Arts at the Rose City Yarn Crawl last year. I have another pompom somewhere in my stash I think, but I can’t find it. (boo).

Lisa Frank themed shawl:

Aww yis, another Norichanknits project! I started it in Hawaii, but had the wrong size needles. Sticker Book still turned out wearable, though small. Yarns used are a single ply merino in Blush by Fierce Fibers, and a semi-solid red by Tell Tale Yarn Co. (which unfortunately seems to have taken a permanent hiatus *sadface*), both fingering weight.


Trying to keep my hands busy even though I should instead be planning for the upcoming surgery. =/

Eh…
