Okay, guilty as charged. Y'all were right when you laughed (albeit very kindly and gently) at me when I said something silly like, "Now that we're engaged (!), I'll have plenty of time to get back to stuff like knitting and blogging." Yeah, right.
Over the last two weeks, we've set a date (Yay!), had it bashed (Boo!), then set another (Yay!) and again struck down (Boo!), followed closely by 3 more dates (Yay, Boo, Yay, Boo, Yay, Boo, respectively). Now we're trying on another. Sixth time's a charm, right? If we could just find a pastor who has time to marry us, we'd be all set. And then I'll have time for stuff like knitting and blogging. Heh. Not even I believe that this time around. But this, I've decided, is a happy sort of problem. Much happier than Will-we-ever-get-sob!-married??? ... which brings us back to Yay!
And really, I totally managed a teeny bit of knitting. I finished Narragansett, who I really hope to show you on Friday once I add a slip stitch to my currently Flashdance-friendly neckline, and get 'er blocked. It's lovely, though. So soft, and so comfy.
Since I found myself suddenly project-less, and since I had a shiny new pattern from the lovely and talented Eskimimi, I fished a skein of Malabrigo sock (in the Aguas colorway) out of the stash, and cast on for a Nympheas, a light and summery lace scarf. Here's how it's looking so far...
The pattern is great, really well written and simple, but just complicated enough to keep things interesting. I'm having a blast knitting it, even though I can only cobble together an hour or two of knitting time a week.
In other news, the invitations are nearly done (or will be as soon as we have a date and venue to put on them), the cake and flowers are sorted, and the guest list is iron-clad. Sort of. The current plan is to have a small wedding in the next month or two here in Colorado, then hopefully a bigger party in California this fall. Fingers crossed!
For more crafty goodness and less wedding angst, head over to Tami's to see what everyone else has been up to in the last week or so. I'm betting it's something fun.
