Holy moley!

Wait, how is it already the middle of October?!
I swear, this month has flown by.

I know, I know, I keep promising completed projects, and pictures of those completed projects. But honestly, my knitting has trickled down to a steady stream of droplets. I only have time for 2 hours of knitting a night if I'm lucky. (I'm sure to some of you that may sound like a lot, but I assure you its not) Who knew having a social life would cut into so much damned knitting time!

I did get some new and lovely Black Bunny Yarn! A beautiful laceweight in yellows/browns/ and shades of honey. I'm trying to break out of my obsession with orange. I have too much orange on the backburner. I needed something more mellow. And it reminded me of wheat fields and corn mazes and the color of trees and leaves at the end of autumn. When everything is quiet and brown and the light seems to always be barely over the horizon.

And it will blend so nicely with my musical choices as of late. I listen to cds all day long at work, so I've been tearing through them much faster then I normally do. On heavy rotation right now is: Nina Nastasia, Godspeed You Black Emperor, Mono, Bonnie Prince Billy, and Low. I must come off as this insanely mellow person because everything I listen to seems slower and quiet.
(anyone who's ever met me knows this is SO not the case!)

I have grand plans to finish my Feather and Fan shawl that was recently restarted. Finish my Half-Pi shawl that was also recently restarted. Finish my Koigu cardigan. Finish my leaf lace shawl. And perhaps finally start my Baltic sea stole, and maybe, if it looks as nice in the magazine as it does in the online picture, start the square stole in the upcoming Interweave.
My work is very chilly most days, so having lost of warm shawls will actually come in handy.

Fancy that....actually using the knitted items I make!
Wonders will never cease!

That looks like some progress to me! Finishing cardigans and shawls and shit. I'm out of town for the next two weekends, but hope to see you before your birthday!
