UGH and some rays of sunshine!

My feeling about today is pretty low. I felt better and even got a bit of knitting done on my Clapotis that is taking me way too long to finish among other projects. I will be tight on money this month so that adds extra stress and burden. I did get a letter about my student loans today which will be processed as soon as I mail back my letter. That makes me happy:)

On the knitting front, I just started the second skein on my Clapotis. I am using only 2 skeins and knitting with Noro Kureyon Sock on US 8's. I raveled my other details here. I also started Mona's Jacket from the current issue of Interweave Knits. Its knit up in super bulky and I am using Cascade Bollicine. The yarn is great although I do snag the hose-like layer holding all that roving together occasionally. Its not a spring or summer knit but I am dying to stashbust as much as possible. I am through to the separation of the sleeves and maybe will have a picture of that tomorrow.

I still am prodding along on my February Lady sweater and I am disappointed that I couldn't get it finished for Ravelympics. I mean, some people knit Norwegian sweaters complete with colorwork and steeks. Sigh. I guess its just the monogamous knitting that got to me and I haven't actually worked on it for about 5 days.

I am still loving that Vanilla pattern I mentioned yesterday and I will be purchasing a cottage license to sell that pattern tomorrow. Kelly, the designer, has been very pleasant to message back and forth on Ravelry.

This is what I made yesterday in a variegated worsted with specs here. And I will finish one in Eco + tonight! I am sure it would be cuter if I actually had a baby's rump to feature it on. Maybe I can ask to borrow a babe for a couple of pictures next time I see them. I must remember to tote one around just in case;)

I am also stashbusting a ton of yarn which I hope to have all of it up for sale on Etsy here and its also listed on Ravelry here.

I have a new goal with parameters. In order to make money, I need to complete and post at least 2 items a day. This will limit my personal knitting to 1 day a week which will be Sunday since I meet up with my girls and on Wednesdays...wish me luck!
