Happy Cinco de Mayo

Happy Cinco de Mayo Everyone!

Since I've been having the wrist pain while working on the cabled pullover, I took a break from it over the weekend. And since I get the fidgets when I don't have anything to do, I started yet another project.

I've been wanting to do the Hemlock Ring Blanket by Jared Flood, aka Brooklyntweed. Nobody does knitting ph0tography like Jared and I mean nobody. That's what suckered me into this project, his fantastic pics of his blanket. I picked a darker chocolate brown, #8087 of the Ecowool than his pattern calls for. I love dark chocolate. Mmm, dark chocolate.

Here it is so far:

It looks more like a beret than a blanket at this stage, but it's coming along.

And guess what? I worked for several hours on this on Saturday and didn't have one wrist pain. I'm guessing that it's definitely the cables that are causing the trouble.

I've also been working on my secret project that I can't show you until June which really sucks. It'll be done long before then. I'll probably post a Ravelry link to it when it's done. The recipient isn't a member there and can't get access to see it that way.

I found a site, today while I was messing around on youtube. I was looking for new hairstyle stuff. This is the cutest girl. She has several cute how to hairstyle videos and I'm planning on doing a few of the ones that she demonstrates. Just thought I'd share. She's got beauty stuff as well, but I love the hair how to's.
