Am I Crazy?

I decided to join a sock KAL.....yeah I know, I should probably finish the 4 pair I have ONT....I am feeling a bit better, although experiencing some nasty side-effects of the antibiotic, but they are under control at the moment...so I might work on one or two today....

So what KAL am I joining?  Kelly over at Celtic Caston is sponsoring the KAL...and we will be casting on Tanis Lavallee's Business Casual sock..I even love the yarn she used, so I may purchase it...Cast on in February....

In other news, my first installment of Mad Color's Mad Geek Tour Steampunk and Artifiction

It's called Verdigris...and is superwash BFL and silk!  It told me it needs to be a shawl...

I finally finished reading Pride and Prejudice yesterday...I have not read much, but in the past week have finished 4 books...haven't wanted to craft, but read yes....the three other books were light, fluffy historical romances....perfect when you are feeling like crap...

This weekend I have socks to knit, papers to correct and grades to input for report cards....yeah we'll see how much gets done...

Have a great weekend everyone...

I've admired Tanis' pattern for quite some time and I'm also a fan of Celtic Caston so I think I'll join you in this KAL!

CUTE pattern, maybe I will join you. Have to finish my Every Way Wrap before I cast on .......

I briefly entertained the thought of joining that KAL...and then I realized there was no way I could do a pair of socks in a month.

But you have fun with it :)

That Verdigris is pretty and should make a nice shawl. Love a bit of silk with my merino. :)

Hi T, thanks for stopping by my corner of the world. I hope you are starting to feel a whole lot better. Our registrar was out all last week with bronchitis -- she even pulled a muscle around her ribs from all the coughing she was doing especially at night. She is on her second round of antibiotics. I work for the Superintendent at the American school my boys attend (one graduates this year and the other is a freshman). Hear, hear to the written pattern. I don't understand the charts at all! Of course, sometimes even the written pattern is confusing. :) Hope you are having a good day. Take care, Tammy

That yarn is gorgeous. I discovered Mad Color a few months ago and I keep eyeing the club. And you can never have enough SIPs. At least that's what I tell myself.
