What I did last Friday

Knitting and Green Tea [179:366, 15.08.2008]

Swatched: 22nd July 2008
Started: 24th July 2008
Finished: WIP
Yarn: "Carpe Diem" from Lang Yarns; 70% merino, 30% alpaca
Needles: 5.5 cm / 80 cm Addi Turbos
Pattern: "Putting Down Roots" from "Inspired Cabled Knits" by Fiona Ellis
Modification: Using bigger needles and yarn, so less pattern repeats. Will be eliminating the turned cuffs and the turtle-neck for ribbed cuffs and v-neck. I also added the ribbing at the bottom of the body, too.

It was Mary's Ascension Day last Friday in the Catholic parts of Germany. The weather wasn't that great and I wasn't feeling that great either due to some issues I was having. So, instead of using that free day to study for my diploma exams, I opted to just lounge about a knit and drink tea. ;-p

I've been knitting on the front part of my Putting Down Roots jersey. Got about half of it done already....I wish that it would be done already. Don't get me wrong, I really enjoy knitting this....but I've been seeing so many jerseys that I want to knit lately. Really don't know what got into me about knitting garments lately. But perhaps that's a good thing, because that means that I will be wearing stuff that people can see (as opposed to socks).

Well, that's all...better hop in bed. The new week's starting...and so I wish you all a good week!
