FO Friday: Gotta Keep The Legs Warm

Last weekend my roomie went climbing at Indian Creek and was worried about the cold weather and being able to stay warm.  I told her that I could make up some quick legwarmers for her to take and climb in, it was Wednesday afterall and she wasn’t leaving until Friday.  I had plenty of time.

Except that it was Thursday and not Wednesday.

Had it actually been Wednesday like I was originally thinking when I offered, the warmers would have been done in plenty of time and on her legs whilst crag climbing in the desert.

Regardless, they were completed last weekend and will be traveling to other climbing destinations in the future!Quick, but not quite quick enough

I used some label-less stash yarn in the colors of rocks on size 9 needles in a k2p2 pattern.

Sorry For My Absence!

Hello everyone!

I know it’s been a week since I last posted, but I have a good excuse.  I had company.  And then I decided to go on an impromptu five-day trip to Colorado Springs/Pike’s Peak/Garden of the Gods to do some camping, rock climbing, hiking and all sorts of other awesome adventures.

We saw some gorgeous sights including the sunrise from the top of Pike’s Peak

so pretty, so freezing

and Garden of the Gods at all hours of the day

there until dark, gorgeous the whole time

And of course I took my knitting:

Now its back to the job hunt and trying to be productive!  Have you been on any adventures recently?

A Lack of Posting

I know I haven’t been the best blogger the past week or so, things have gotten really busy with school and I’ve also picked up a new hobby.

That's not me, but I did take the picture 🙂

Rock climbing.  Rock climbing is all well and good except that it takes up the time that I normally use for blogging so I need to strike a better balance with all that.  But in the mean time, I just wanted to let you all know that by the time you read this, I’ll be in the dentists’ chair again, having the second session of my minor oral surgery.  This time: gum graft.

I should be back on Wednesday with a WIP and hopefully Friday with some FOs, but other than that, I’ll be sucking down ice cream and terrible mouthwash.
