Knitting and This and That

I’ve had to travel to my Dad’s house due to some of his health issues. Thanks to everyone that has expressed concern, he doesn’t have internet access and am sorry if I’ve not gotten back to you. I’ll be traveling back and forth in the days to come, just wish I could knit in the car, I could get so much done!

Was at my Dad’s house and he looked out the windows and we saw this beautiful sunset. Had to try and capture it. Of course this is about 30 snaps in, love digital cameras!

I don’t know about you but I love to listen to knitting podcasts! Especially since my car cd/radio is broken! My favorite’s right now are Knitmore Girls, Stash and Burn, and a new one I heard about Jane and Jen KnitFunny (I really enjoy listening to these girls!) Of course there is Cast On (my classic). Please let me know if there are some that you listen to and enjoy, I have lots of driving time to fill!

Now on to knitting. Over the years I’ve discovered I like to have 3 types of projects going (at least) a mindless (potato chip knitting) for work or TV or stressed out, I can’t concentrate on anything mode. A sweater, to make me feel like a real knitter, ha (and I don’t do complicated sweaters, just basic something that I can wear, classic type ones), Then something a little more complicated with a stitch or color pattern project like lace or cables, but not too large, maybe shawl or socks. I need to get that other crap out of my head and just think pattern.

In addition to the Dummy Clap Shawl and the Zuma Tunic, more on those later. I just cast on the LaLa scarf from the book Greetings From The Knit Cafe. It is an easy lace repeat I’m knitting on #6 needles, because that is what I had with me when I started it. The yarn is lace weight Patons in the color way wood rose, not what I originally intended to do with this yarn,  (the color changes go from dark brown or maroon to white and pink, I’m a bit apprehensive about how that will look), but I just needed to cast on something.*snort*

The moon is going to be close to Jupiter the 21st, I tried to get some good photos of it, not close enough yet, but this is what I have so far. Hopefully when I moves closer to the moon I’ll be able to get something.
