I can't seem to get myself to sit down and post. I respond to a few emails and then I'm done in and have to get back to my kids and my knitting.

Here's what I've been up to.

My now tangle-free earbuds. Ravelry notes here.

A skirt finished except for elastic, even now on it's way to California. Ravelry notes here.

Fingerless gloves. Soon to be headed to Ireland. Ravelry notes here.

My current project. Another armadillo using Linda's great pattern. I'm knitting it on US size 1 needles so that it'll be a bit smaller than the last one I made. She will also be headed to Ireland in the future. I'm still reading The Winter Sea and loving it. I also have a stack of books from the library that I need to get through: a mess of knitting stitch resources, a book on raising sheep, Viking books for the Elf's school work, a book by the amazing Jenna, and a book about Jane Austen.

Linking up with Ginny for the Yarn Along.


  1. What a fantastic idea for ear buds Melissa, I will have to go take a peek at your notes. My earbuds are always getting tangled and it bothers me to no end!
    So, are you thinking about raising sheep? I would love to, but Mike won't get on board!

  2. :-) :-) eeeek shaking with excitement :-) x

  3. I love the knittings!
    Raising sheep?! That's FUN!
    You will have a lot of wool!!!
