Today I made a Bauble. Check it out:
This was so much fun! Stringing the beads was tedious, but watching it come together was so much fun. I cast on two stitches instead of three, then knit until it was just shorter than the circumference of my wrist (to allow for some stretching). It’s a little heavy, but I’m really pleased at how it came out. I will definitely make more – maybe with smaller beads next time so it won’t be so heavy.
This is my last week of training in dispatch, then hopefully next week (or within a few weeks) I’ll be in there full time on my own. I worked a shift on the ambulance last night and really enjoyed it – I needed the break. Fall semester classes start next week, so this will be my last week of overtime for a little bit, so I can get used to my new (crazy) schedule and have a little me time again.
I’ve had finishitis tonight…I sewed in the ends on two calorimetries, a wicked, and my re-done clapotis. So that leaves on the needles…a scarf, another Wicked, the Mystery Stole, a pair of socks, and several hibernating projects that I won’t mention here. I had better get cracking!
