Found Objects

Yesterday afternoon, when I was expecting to be quietly filing, only to find myself the only secretary on my ENTIRE WING, I freaked out and played on Ravelry. Thus did I discover the Very Danger Therein: basically, any cool thing you find out there can be entered into your "queue", so you don't forget it exists and can find it later. My first queued item: the Heere Be Dragone Shawl by Sharon Winsauer. SOOOO cool.

Last night, had a wonderful time at Sweet Life, with a lot of giggling and outright laughter. As Vicki said, "I better stop here. I'm heading into some increases, and that takes concentration." The only reason I didn't mess up my sweater-panel more than I did was because it was stockinette. We had a *lot* of ladies - KnitFriendly/GroupMom, Svetlana (who knits such beautiful things - and SO FAST!!), Alli, Vicki, Me, mom, she-who-knits-SotS, she-who-has-cool-wire-glasses-holders, she-who-videojournals, she-whose-sweater-looks-hommade-yet-wasn't, and at least two other women whose names I don't have yet, and whose projects I wasn't quite close enough to see. I will get everyone's names one of these years.

This morning, I decided to at least see what was in the pile in the middle of our middle room. Several surprises lurked therein:
1.First was what had once been the acryllic yarn that was about 1/8 of the Peacock Feather shawl. I unraveled it, because while I fully intend to knit this sucker again, I'm *so* doing it in Claudia Handpainted Silk Lace.
2.Next was a sock I don't even remember starting. I'll be unraveling it, too... and who knew I already had a set of dpn's?
3.I think I remember starting this sock, but having no clue what I was doing. I'll be starting it again, too.
4.
and
First is the COMPLETED sweater I did for my carpool driver. Second is the sleeve I did for that sweater, but lost in my house. So, I've got an orphan sleeve. It does NOT count as a project in progress, since its intended project IS finished, and has been given to its new owner.
I already know I'm not going to be knitting once I get home. I just found out two of my friends had a stealth wedding on Monday - and I'm seeing them Sunday. So, the world's fastest wedding sampler has to be stitched up FASTFASTFAST. Plus, I'm seeing my D&D group on Sunday, as well, and was going to make little Dice Bags for everyone - and they're not quite done, either. I may not sleep before I see everyone on Sunday!

All y'all have a good weekend now, y'hear?
