While I wait…

It’s time for the waiting game.  Apparently the first sock kits for the 2010 Rockin Sock Club are hitting the streets!

Tina gave us this wonderful song as our 2010 theme and I can’t get the song or the kit out of my head!  All I can think about is what time the mail will arrive!

But in my techonoligical advanced state since I got my new phone, I feel obliged to share my other new favorite discovery.

Check out Pandora radio. You put a song or artist in and a cool collection of songs , commercial free, keep you busy!  While you wait!  Spinning.  Knitting.  Or stalking.

 Maybe you are more savvy than me and have been a fan for a while.   If so, why didn’t you tell me?


A couple of projects flew off the needles in the past few days.

Harmonia’s Rings is just that!  What a cool pattern. Cat Bordhi has an amazing mind.  I wonder just how many pathways there are in her head?

And I did end up putting the beads on.  I decided to go with a mix of colored beads, matte and shiny.  I added them randomly choosing contrasting colors at that picot point.  While they don’t jump out at you, the beads add a nice touch and I am pleased with the fun they add!

Pattern: Harmonia’s Rings cowl by Sivia Harding

Yarn: Blue Moon Fiber Arts Twisted, Muddy Autumn Rainbow

Needle: size 8 knit picks, 47″ and 24″

Mods: just an extra repeat on the end of the yoke.

I really like it!  The cowl is just right and it keeps my shoulders nice and toasty.  I have a little yarn left over and I am thinking some mittens…

(Oh, and dd 1, my fiber artist in training, took the photos for me.  Winter photos are tough!)

I’ll tell you about the 2nd FO tomorrow…
