My weekend in pictures

Hi everyone! Happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Mine was great! Justin judged at The Battle of Maine karate tournament this weekend, which meant I got to see tons of cute little kids doing somersaults and get lots of knitting done. Here’s a recap of my weekend:

A long-overdue WIP Wednesday Update

Hi everyone! It’s amazing how quickly life becomes so busy once the new year hits! There have been some very exciting developments at work, which combined with a few big grants to write and lots of math homework have left me with little time to blog the last month.

The weather has been pretty crazy here, this was the view from my window yesterday! The exciting thing about the snow was that school was canceled (woo-hoo!) and my work was closed! (Unfortunately I didn’t know that part until the afternoon so I was still working away on that grant I mentioned earlier) But, once I read that work was closed I got right to knitting.

Lots of snow in Downtown Hampton!

The lovely Jennifer of Knitwise, Purlwise recently designed the super awesome Colorblock Shawl and is offering it for free on Ravelry! Sweet, right? To celebrate the publishing of her first pattern she’s hosting a knit-a-long on her blog and through the Instagram-along-ers group on Ravelry. Needless to say I fell in love with the pattern right away, especially since it’s such a great stash-buster! Taking advantage of yesterday’s snow day (and the power going out which gave me a few uninterrupted hours of knitting) here is my progress so far.
