Work in Progress 164
Before I get to WIPW, I have a few things to comment on besides the new job. First, next week I'll be scheduling WIPW and FO Friday (probably) in advance. I'm extremely busy getting ready for the Vista Fiber Fiesta which is October 12-13, and we're taking a few days off to celebrate the new job.
Hockey season is back. For those who have followed me the past few years understand how excited this makes me. Life just doesn't feel right when it isn't hockey season. Now all is perfect again with the start of the NHL season last night and my LA Kings playing their first game tomorrow. I can't wait.
How many of you watched Broadchurch? I don't want to give spoilers, but HOLY SMOKES. We just finished the series and my mind if blown. I suspected who it was for a fleeting moment several episodes back and then completely dismissed it right away. I'm so glad it wasn't in left field, but then again, wow. I also have to admit that I balled at the last episode. Heart wrenching. That has to be one of the best programs on television today and I hope the series 2 is just as good (I also hope that David Tennant is back). I'd love to go back and watch it all again, as now that I think back, I see signs of who the killer was. Crazy.
Okay, now on to WIPW...
I'm making the Harvest Dew socks, a pattern I've had in my queue on Ravelry for AGES. In fact, I think it may be one of the first knitted sock patterns I added to my queue way back when. I've always wanted to make it but never found the proper yarn until now. I'm using my October '13 colorway for Candy Skein, Candy Corn. The pattern is perfect, as the "dew drops" kinda look like candy corn, don't they? I'm so in love with these and they're flying by. I started them Sunday night during World War Z (which we thought was pretty good!) and then knit a little on Monday night at my knitting group and then a few minutes during the hockey game today. I'm about half way (or a little more) don't with the leg.
Here is what Candy Corn looks like in the skein! Awesome, right?
That's it for me today. I hope you all have a great rest of the week!
