Knitted Escapades

I am busy, busy, BUSY these days. I just finished my doctoral project, planning a wedding, and knitting in all the spare time I possibly can. I was going to knit a flower bouquet for the me and the bridesmaids. However, I just do not have enough time to finish before the big day arrives. Instead, I decided that I will knit the groom’s and groomsmen boutonnieres.

I knit my fiancé a blanket last year for his birthday. He take that blanket everywhere with him in case he gets cold. So I figured I would knit us a blanket for our new apartment and so that we can snuggle under one blanket. However, it has gotten large and not so cold anymore. So I find myself only bringing out my blanket project on cold days.

Since we are starting to get spring and summer weather, I have found myself knitting socks when I couldn’t cary the other two projects around. Boy did I forget how nice and easy it is for a knitting project to fit in your purse without getting all mumbled and jumbled! I have finished one sock and I am starting on the other cuff right now.

Because of my current sock obsession, I asked my fiancĂ© if we could afford to buy some addi turbo 8″ circular knitting needles so I can have an easier time knitting socks on the go. I was thrilled yesterday when they finally arrived in the mail!!!!! I cannot wait to use them! I am hoping that this Memorial Weekend when we head up north to the cabin that I will be able to whip them out and knit some more socks on them.
