General Update

Just a note to let those who care and don’t already know, that I finished Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows late Saturday night or early Sunday morning if you wish to be exact. Just the same, I will delete any spoilers posted in the comments. Others who read this blog may not be done yet. And spoilers are evil.

The Pemberley Annual Meeting was fantastic, as always. Too short, as always. I have been quite desolate without Geri-Lynn’s company. More about Pemberley when I have time. But I will say, the date for the next pilgrimage to England is looking like 2010. I’m so in! As soon as the dates are nailed down, I’ll be booking accommodations in Ireland for the week afterwards. I’ll aim for a 3 or 4 bedroom condo/villa so that other Pemberlians may join me. Sansanee, Geri-Lynn, and Martine are in so far.

As for knitting: I’ve got 3 pairs of socks (soon to be 4 once I cast on for my new Hogwarts Pal, another Ravenclaw), 1 cardigan, 1 stole, 1 wrap sweater, and 1 baby blanket on the needles. Plus I need to start another baby blanket (what a wonderful excuse to go yarn shopping) for baby McCarley and figure out a project for baby Kienow! I just found out about that pregnancy this morning:

Congratulations to Ken and Courtney!

Don’t know what’s going on with my Netflix Widget over there. It was working fine until their site (and stock) went toe up over the weekend. I’ll see if I can mess with it some other time though. I’m far too busy at the moment.

Current Netflix: Prime Suspect 1: Disc 2 and Californication: Season 1: Preview

  1. Awesome!

    I won’t say Rogue is an easy pattern, but it is definitely broken down into small enough chunks that it is quite manageable.

    I actually used Lion Brand’s Wool-Ease for it, because when I started it, I was in the “must be machine washable” mindset. (I’ve sort of gotten over that by now.) It worked pretty well, actually, but I think a nicer, purer wool would be better.

  2. What pattern are you thinking of using for the Sock Swap? And if you are knitting Rogue please post pictures. I need to come up for a visit next month. It feels like it has been to long.

  3. I like Interweave’s Flying Butteress pattern but it calls for magic loop method which I have yet to master. I also like their Ambrosia pattern. Plus I found a fun pattern in an old Calendar of daily Patterns.

    I turned the heel on a baby sock for Natalie last night, it’s called Cool as a Cucumber, but since I’m using the leftover yarn from my Scottish Highlands “Socks that Rock ” yarn, these will be warm as baked zucchini. :)

    I have the Rouge Pattern somewhere, but I haven’t found the right yarn for it yet.
