Well, I may unexpectedly have a lot more knitting time in my future. Yesterday was my last day at my internship. I was supposed to finish out the week, but the writer's strike here in LA has so seriously depleted any of the work I could be doing that there was no point in me even making the trip. So...my boss bid me farewell yesterday afternoon and now all I have left is finals on Friday and Saturday and I will be done with the semester. It's actually nice to have some days off this week so I can finish off presentations and projects and do some studying...but I am a little sad to leave my internship site since everyone there was so nice and friendly. I really started to feel like I belonged there and it was my company...and now I don't get to go back. *sigh*
Since I am supposed to be home doing homework, however, I haven't done much knitting. I whipped up a simple hat for my little neice over the weekend. I was going to make her a matching scarf too, but I have less than 200 yards of yarn left over. I'm still going to try: I'll just make it a little skinnier than I otherwise would and hope it gets long enough. Maybe I'll make her one of those keyhole scarves...
Pattern: Coronet from knitty.com
Yarn: Berocco Peruvia, about 1 skein (174 yards)
Needle: Size 8
Notes: This was a really fast knit and a great way to use up some leftover yarn from my Tilted Duster.
