Work totally kicked my butt today; 12+ hour work days are not humane. And it was hardcore, in the lab, spilling resin, smashing glass bottles full of buffer on the floor, overflowing waste beaker all over the lab bench, splashing nasty water bath water in my face type work. Thank goodness I had free reign to use our department intern as my buffer slave for the day or I would have never survived. She was such a good sport about it too! Filtered more buffer than I asked her to and everything!

I got home at 10:15pm and I was too wired to just go to bed. So I sat down and I knit. These are the things that I am presently working on...
Works in progress...

I restarted the sherbet scarf. I decided it was too wide and it wouldn't turn out long enough with the two balls I bought, so I started over. The new is on the left and the old is on the right. I like the narrower scarf much better. The stripes are cooler. Haha. The next object, the little turquoise blob, is a Dream Swatch (pdf) with the leftover bamboo yarn from Kaitlin's shawl. The yarn is waaaay too pretty to go to waste, so I'm making a little head scarf with it. And finally, peeking out of the corner is the crumpled up Leaf Lace shawl. She is coming along nicely.
Yarns and the maths for the baby sweater.

Nextly, I'm designing a baby sweater for a friend who had a baby in the beginning of Jun... I'm using The Sweater Workshop as a guide to make a bottom-up raglan sweater in the round. I think it will turn out pretty cute. My inspiration is from a different book... I'm going to put a giraffe on the tummy and stripes on the sleeves like the sweater below. Only different colors and construction, of course.
Such a cute giraffe with the dangly feets and everything!!!

Ok. I'm not wired anymore. Definitely sleepy. Time for bed! Another crazy day in the lab tomorrow. Thank goodness for overtime.
