I may not have been doing much knitting in the past few days, but I'm planning on making up for it next month! Hopefully by then, my draft will be submitted and sometime during February there will only be minor cosmetic changes to the text.
So here are my knitting plans for February:
The LYS near my apartment is hosting a month-long Olympic challenge, to knit an EPS sweater in the month of February. I joined that- so I'll be knitting another sweater. There's a "training session" next weekend, to help get the math under control, and then there's a cast on party on the first. I've got some robin's egg blue Cascade 220 that I'll be using. Those sweaters that do get finished in the month of February will receive a $20 gift certificate to the yarn shop- that is plenty of motivation for me!
I also joined the Adventures in Lace KAL with Kate.
I had also pledged to be on a Ravelympics team.
I believe that I'm going to combine the lace and the ravelympics and make a Citron, and save 'bigger' lace for after the sweater is done.
I'm so excited for knitting through the entire month of February!
I talk to The Ambassador today. I spent all day yesterday, and will spend the rest of this morning rereading his book and major report, and also my own research, in the hope that I will sound intelligent. I'm getting more and more nervous about this interview, but it should be really interesting to talk to him, whether or not he likes my ideas. And really, if he doesn't like my ideas... it's kind of too late to change them.
And to close, here's another hat I finished before I left Georgia: Ripley by Ysolda Teague.
I did two versions of this hat, out of one skein of Malabrigo- one size small slouchy version (which I think is pictured below) and one size medium not so slouch version. They were meant to be gifts, but I'm not sure I'm okay with giving them away!
