Honor Roll Intensity...

Friday was my day to post on Christine Fonseca's blog. As is the case with most of my posts, it's about a personal experience. Here it is...

Growing Up Labeled Gifted: Vindication?

Today is my day to post on Christine Fonseca's: An Intense Life. Here it is.

Finished Object Friday - Hunger Games Yarn

I finished the cowl I making with the Hunger Games yarn. The WIP post for it along with yarn and pattern information can be found in this post can be found here.

Here's the finished cowl:

I made this for myself. It is a little big for my daughter, Amanda, who is modeling as I outweigh her by almost 100 pounds. It still works for her at this size too.

WIP Wednesday - Mom's Scarf

The other day, my mom "hinted" in an email that she likes long scarves and that she likes browns and blacks and tans. Okay, got the hint, mom! ;-) I found this pattern on Ravelry, and I'm using some awesome yarn that a woman in my Stitch N Bitch group dyed. The yarn I'm using is fingering weight though, not worsted. Here's some pics:

It will need a LOT of blocking to get it to look more like the original.

Script Frenzy Day 2

Oh, don't worry, I'm not going to post a day by day accounting of my Script Frenzy writing. (Especially since I didn't bother posting a Script Frenzy Day 1) I'm just going to whine about my procrastination. In March, I was attempting to participate in NaBloPoMo. Life got in the way and I missed a day. Just one day and the participant is disqualified from "winning." Once that one day was missed, I got into the mindset of, "Why bother posting for the rest of the month?" I had intended to at least post on Wednesdays and Fridays for my Work In Progress and Finished Objects, but I guess the attitude just carried over.

I spent most of the time knitting and crocheting while catching up on every episode of a TV show I had never watched before. A TV show that began in 2005. I am now caught up to the current season. Oh, and no, to be clear, I did not begin with season one in March. I began season one sometime in December. I guess I just stepped up my episodes/per day. On the plus side, I got a lot knitting and crocheting done, and I have a new WIP and a new FO for this week.

Today, I also need to finish my Friday post for Christine Fonseca's "An Intense Life" blog. So, time to get back to that, and then on to my script....frenzy.
