This past weekend my Run-crew started. Run-crew is backstage work that is required for my Theatre Arts degree. Well, because the arts campus is flooded and probably won't even be open this fall, the theatre department has moved their productions to West High School. Yay. . . Thats not the only problem, the first production I am working on has back breaking work. My body has been aching since Saturday. I have so far worked 17 1/2 hours and have 7 more hours tonight, then 5 tomorrow, etc etc etc. Yes, so much fun. I have been trying to relax and take it easy between shifts.
Here is what I've been up to:
I have three more skeins added to my sash. The first one is Sundara Silk Lace in Granite Falls. This is from the Seasons Club. I honestly have NO IDEA what I'm going to do with it. =/ The second is Hazel Knits Artisan Sock Yarn in Weekend Warrior. This will become socks for my brother for Hanukkah. And the last one is some beautiful handspun sock weight yarn I purchased off etsy.

I have been working on these socks off and on, but during run-crew, even when I get to sit, there are only black lights. It's very hard to see what I'm doing. I make start plain stockinette socks and take those instead. This is Hazel Knits Artisan Sock in Lime Granita. I love this yarn and the Hedgerow pattern is soo easy, but the lack of light doesn't help much.

In my spare time I have also been preparing the first part of my new line of colourways. I am going to limit it to about 12 colourways. Most will be semi-solids and some will be variegated. Sex Kitten will be the only one of my previous variegated colourways that will remain.
Below we have some of my new semi-solids. (names Left to Right) Bamboo, Taurus, (new) Artery, and Mist.

Below is another of the new colourways. I wound this one up because it will be knit into lace socks for a friend who is getting married in August. I'm unable to attend the wedding because my classes start the following day. =( This colourway is Jasmine.

I also have an oops skein below if anyone wants it, just email me at gbutlernet@yahoo.co.uk. Thanks!

Wonderful yarn as always!
Sounds interesting with your crew, though I'm sad to hear that your body is aching so much (have you tried a long hot tub bath! Always helps me loosen up again)
