Heavens, did life get a bit hectic lately. Took a trip back to the Heimatstadt to visit my dad, came back to the launching pad, then flung myself across the Big Blue again. Somehow papers managed to get sorted somewhat and stuff got mailed that needed to be mailed right away. The knitting WIP pile is slowly shrinking, though not as quickly as I'd like. Other stuff will get done in due time.
When I couldn't concentrate on some of the larger projects (have three shawls going right now) for love or money, took to knitting scraps of wool into squares or rectangles, beating the fibers into submission in the washer and dryer, then playing at origami:
Three little green bowls. Sent them off to Karen as a sort of half-a$$ed housewarming gift until I get her real one done and, well, her new house gets finished being built.
Two resolutions for 2012 are to work through more of my yarn stash (greatly augmented by my new thrift-store sweater unraveling mania) and to get better organized. I'm thinking that these guys could help me kill two birds with one stone. A recipe for the square versions pictured below can be found here.
