Thanks, WendyKnits!

Remember a couple of days ago when I was debating vacation projects and ruled out Wingspan because I’ll need to weigh yarn. Well, thanks to my friend, WendyKnits, Wingspan will be the vacation project. If you followed the link, you’ll see she blogged about a pocket scale and I have one winging its merry little way to my studio. I’ve been whining lately about how heavy my knitting bag is. I’ve blamed it on the bag itself but I generally carry a calculator (yes I have one on my phone and the Kindle), knitting tool kit with iPod and flash drive,  Kindle Fire, camera and charger, two Baggu bags and a Baggu backpack, my purse (fully loaded), a project bag and whatever else I need for the day.  I can make a case for removing the iPod and the calculator but I need all the other stuff. And now I’ll be adding a scale. My next acquisition really needs to be a lighter bag.

She also has a new pattern Sheldon and Leonard that I had to have because I love Big Bang Theory. I have enough Malabrigo Silky Merino left over from the Eyelet Cardi to make the sportweight version.

I did a bit of wait-knitting today but mostly I worked on WendyKnits Sunrise Sock 1. I’ve finished the toe and about 42 rows of foot. I may be able to work a few more before sleep knitting sets in. This is a fairly simple pattern with pattern stitches every fourth row. The rest is knit stitches so it goes quickly.

I also worked a swatch for the  Breaker knitalong that I’ll start on Sunday. I’ll have a picture of this and talk about it more in my next post.

Till next time, no frogs, no tinks, just knits.
