Ooh boy has work gone into full throttle and I haven’t even hit the busiest week yet. Starting Monday I have two presentations a day and then a huge Open House to run. Such is my September – I take the roll of a traveling saleswoman pitching to every girl that crosses my path. It’s a crazy time because I’m in and out of my office which always has a constant full inbox or voicemail box waiting for me. It’s high energy and caffeine and excitement and crashing all at the same time. It won’t stop until November when things change into a full time desk job – inputting application after application until I go cross eyed. Thus is the Admissions Director job…
Which makes having an FO feel really really ridiculously good! This was casted on just before Labor Day and I finished it this afternoon while watching my BC Eagles take on the Army. I have another project just finished too so I can’t really say my busy job has truly kept me from knitting but for some reason if Feels like it has.
I just love this scarf. I made one last fall for my brother Andrew and this one will go to a special recipient as well. The next one I make is for ME. My LYS is adding Malabrigo to her selection of yarns so I will happily wait for that shipment to be in for my very own Shifting Sands. Who this scarf goes to, well that will have to wait a bit for me to reveal but it’s going to a very hardworking friend who deserves this little piece of beautiful.
Pattern – Shifting Sands by Grumperina
Yarn – 2 skeins of Malabrigo, Brown Berries
Needles – Size 9s Addi Turbos
I took a page out of Brooklyntweed’s knit play book and casted on
42 stitches for the worsted weight. It’s a great width and wraps
around my neck twice for a cozy fit. A gorgeous scarf indeed and a far cry from the Roast Beef that my Boyfriend had nicknamed it when I started.
Who knows when I’ll be posting next but I have a few buttons to sew and a light blocking to do but there’s another knit that is waiting to be shown. I’m sure you Shakespearian folks out there know what it is. Until then, I’m off to have some Pinot Grigio.
