…preseason football starts! After all the complaining I did this morning, I’ve decided I need to get myself out of this funk and be happy for all the things I have to be happy and thankful for. Tonight: Preseason football, Tampa Bay Bucs vs the New England Patriots. Being able to watch the game while I’m at work makes it much more bearable.
Thing 2: Beads. I found the pattern for Bauble on Ravelry, and I’m in love. The beads in the Mystery Stole have piqued my interest, and being able to try a beaded project and knit at the same time seems ideal. Plus, Christmas is coming…I sense some (more) quick Christmas projects ahead.
Speaking of the Mystery Stole, the theme was announced last Friday and I’m not sure how I feel about it yet. The theme is Swan Lake, and the shawl is asymetrical with one end (the one I made already) a rectangle with a pointed end , and the other end a rounded feather pattern – the idea being that the completed stole will be a wing, with the feather end across the chest, the other end draped around the shoulders and back and tucked under the feathered section (and pinned). I think I can see where this is going, and although I’m not convinced I’ll love it I’m very interested to see how it comes out. I’m sure if I don’t like the end result I know someone who will.
