NaNoBloMo Day 2- ISO More time in the day!

Anyone got a few extra hours in the day and a few extra sets of hands to loan me? Mine are starting to cramp up. I can do this. I need buttons buttons buttons, and finish a few more scarves. Personally I am a hat person. I love hats. however so many people are on the scarf love that I feel I need to bulk up on my scarf assortment. I will bulk up on my scarf assortment and people will want hats. Its how it always goes. My last big show people kept asking for bracelets, I was making earrings. Moral of my tale. Make all the things. Don’t sleep. Just make the things. It will somehow work out in your favor.

My mega complaint about the new time change, I can’t crochet in the car when I come home from work. I know there are light up hooks, I have one, not in the size I need right now for this particular project, BUT I have one, and it is neat. Right now I am hooking with a Knitters Pride Symfonie Dreamz hook (the full set is on my Christmas list if anyone needs a last minute present for me <3 ) Its a lovely wood hook- just the right size, weight and smoothness. A bit more expensive, but MAN they are such nice hooks. This hook does not light up- and I dont want to be the weirdo with the headlamp on trying to fit in a few more stitches in the car. So yes, I am counting the days til more daylight, and trying my best to be patient.

I am using my symfonie hook to work on a multi functional infinity scarf. The yarn was spun by me in Duluth- some of my Lake Superior spinning, and it comes from Crosspatch Creations. I got a nice amount of yardage from it- like 300+ yards, and it looks and feels like Noro!

It has a nice warm fall look to it but I could see someone wearing it to an elegant dinner as well. I cant wait til it is done so I can post it!

 

Ok, off to crochet and watch Gossip Girl… only 4 more seasons to go. Someone please suggest something I can work on and not have to pay too much attention to? B is mildly making fun of it, I don’t blame him, it is pretty lame.
