WIP Wednesday - Moving at the Speed of Snail

As a reminder, there is a giveaway going on so check out my Blogiversary Post for details.  Remember, the answers are in the blog so check out my old posts for the answers to the clues :)

While the rest of my life seems to be flying by my knitting seems to have slowed to a crawl.  Well the speed of a snail actually.   At work things are full speed ahead on various projects, my class this semester is fairly intense and everything else just seems to have some claim to my time lately.  Plus I have plans of plans of plans that I need to accomplish or just get started on.

Does else feel like their good intentions go to waste?  Lately, I feel so rushed.  I want to clean but am too tired or don't have time.  I need to do laundry but am getting home in time to crash for the next day.  Things just keep piling up, perhaps I just don't prioritize them high enough.  As this month winds to a close I hope to  make some positive changes in February.

Let's check out the yarny goodness!

Sun and Stars Trillian

Doesn't that blue just look lovely?

This gal has definitively been growing.  It is so lovely and squishy and is already 90+ stitches across.  I love this pattern as it's so easy and is great when watching or listening to something while working on it.  Plus it's all knit stitch so I can really turn the brain off.

I watched most of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy last night and loved Trillian and Marvin.  I can't believe it took me this long to see it.  Plus does anyone know why Martin Freeman doesn't keep his hair so lovely and fluffy like that.  Ugh I just want to run my hands through it. Sigh, but he is BAMF in Sherlock so what can you do?

Care of

Ooh Shapely Boyfriend

Orange you glad I didn't say Banana?
So due to some crafty enablers on the Let's Go Pens board I made an impromptu trip to Grove City, PA to Wolf Creek Yarns.  So after some browsing, I bought some Berroco Vintage Chunky in Pumpkin to help finish this sweater.  And ever the child, I wanted to use the skein right then so I got some work done on the cardigan this weekend.  I am pleased with how it's coming though purling on the wrong side is a pain in the ass.  Seriously, it's a lot of stitches.

Well that's it for this week.    For other WIPs check out Tami's Amis and Frontier Dreams

  1. The yarn you're using for Trillian is absolutely gorgeous!

  2. If you think that the Hitchhikers Guide movie is good, the book is absolutely fantastic! Also, those first two paragraphs of this post have totally summed up how I feel about life right now too. I think that February is going to be much better, we can do this!
