Attack of the Pollen!

Monday, April 5, 2010

Today has been the worst on the pollen scale so far. I knew on Saturday that it was going to be a rough week. My car had a faint halo of pollen on Saturday. When I left work today my car now has a lovely pale yellow tint. I have to buy some Zyrtec tonight to try and combat my allergies with Flonase.

No goodies on Saturday from my friends, just some fingering weight acrylic and some wool for babies clothes and Debbie Bliss Cathay. I can at least make baby clothes out of it. For other people, of course, not myself at the present time nor the near future.

I didn't do anything for Easter and I really dislike going to church on holidays. I didn't get up early enough to go to a sunrise service and those are the only ones I like to go to on Easter anyways.

I got a ton of knitting done. Well, a ton in relation to what volume I have been knitting. I am whipping out novelty scarves like a bat out of hell. I am totally surprised because it really is agitating to even touch. (As I shudder) I cranked out almost 3 this week! I have also been churning out simple crocheted headbands from a free pattern found here . I will be mailing some to my sister to wear and selling them on Etsy I suppose.

On Saturday I did venture to Cast-On for a peek in and I ended up buying yarn for 2 summer garments, the Aran Necklace Camisole and Betty's Tee. These patterns are in the latest issue of IK. I really do love this issue and I have Mona's Jacket on the needles from the same issue. So for these patterns I bought some Berroco Naturlin in navy and Rowan summer tweed in a great shade of red to make these patterns. Its actually the first time I have bought the exact yarn used in the pattern. I don't recommend it mostly because I am almost positive that those people that publish get incentives for choosing a company's yarn. And you will never find new and exciting yarns and venture into the unknown.

I found a new favorite martini this past weekend. Pear martinis are absolutely divine. I am a sucker for pomegranate martinis but have found that some people just don't make them very well. Or chocolate ones for that matter.

I also bought a manequin this weekend off of ebay for about $20. Its basically a torso and I am going to use it for photgraphing my Etsy scarves. It should be here by the end of the week!

Here is the beginnings of a Noro soaker:)
