in Blah

Stitches Midwest is next week!! So, what have I been working on? Homework. I only need to do three swatches, so it is actually going pretty fast. The homework is for the finishing class, so I am using acrylic yarn. Yes, I said it. I want these to last so that I can refer back to them. Acrylic is like a Twinkie–it will never deteriorate. My other class is "Getting over the Fear of Cutting". You know, cutting your knitting and steeks and all that. No homework there. I’m glad. I don’t know if I want my first experience cutting my knitting to be in front of people. I shudder at the thought.

Other than swatches, I have working on the sock. It’s boring people. Total Second Sock Syndrome here. I think it makes it worse that they are for someone else. If they were for me, I’d have them finished already. That and I am trying to be a perfectionist since they are for someone else. I have to get on the ball, though. The date is approaching.

I still need to finish up the OSW. I just need to sew one arm and do the ribbing. But like I said, I have deadlines to make!

In other news, I think I killed our dishwasher this morning. I turned it on and smelled the most awful burning smell. I wasn’t cooking, so I decided that it must be the dishwasher. I opened it up and there was cold water in there and a motor of some sort burning. Guess it’s time for a new one. I love being a homeowner…
