HAED SAL weekend

This past weekend was the HAED SAL Challenge weekend. Yeah, that's a mouthful. It gets better though. This is KMB ACEO QS by Tate that I stitch on during the HAED SAL weekend. Take that, Army!

That translates to Kimono Butterflies Mermaid ACEO by Nadia Tate. I adore it. Didn't get a whole lot of stitching time this weekend because I had other things I needed to do, but I'm still very pleased with the amount of progress I made. I need to do a confetti session next month. Ugh!

I survived my first day completely intact. And I am exhausted! But it's a good kind of exhausted, one that I can live with. I discovered, much to my surprise, that I get an hour for lunch when I'm working an 8 hour shift. Thought it would just be 30 minutes.

So, I'm going to become a lunch knitter. None of my stitching projects are conducive to pulling out for 30 minutes at a time. So I'm going to get my sock finished, and then I can finally let myself order the yarn and pattern for the Ivy Trellis stole.

I just LOVE the pattern, and I've gushed about it before I think. I love ivy. I mean I really love ivy, my dishes for my kitchen are th Corelle ivy dishes. The yarn I'm using is Knit Picks Palette Iris Heather. It is a lace pattern, but done with fingering weight yarn instead of lace weight. Since I love the look of knitted lace and want to learn how to do it, I figured a heavier weight lace project would be a good place to start. And I can use the leftovers from my pair of socks to practice the new stitches. See, I do have a plan!

Hi Rachel :)

Thanks for the comment! Yeah, closed communion is a weird thing...but my Dad and I are getting there.

Glad that you liked the OrthoWiki :) Please let me know if there's any questions I can answer, I'll do my best to help out any way I can.

Just a note - beliefs and structure are universal to Orthodoxy, but practice can vary jurisdiction to jurisdiction. So be sure to check that a certain practice is 'Russian' before you include it, because the way the Greeks and Arabic speaking peoples do it can be somewhat different :)



PS: your fae looks gorgeous, but you need to update your blog more often!
