I finally finished the beautiful shawl Line Break. I did it in Madeline Tosh Light and I finished it in time for the nip in the air that is coming. I love the pattern and the yarn.
Today I spent a good chunk of time on Ravelry, buying, saving and fav’ing even more beautiful shawls. I am thinking of something with some beads. I did happen to pick up some beautiful beads while in Alexandria last weekend and I keep looking at them and they are speaking to me. My poor hubby was passing by and asked if this is what I was going to do today, my answer, yep, pretty much and I think I may need a nap. He understood the reason for my deep down tiredness and left me to myself.
I am also very smitten with a sweater. I know, I know…I always say, I’m not really a garment knitter, but I got to try this sweater on and it was love at first sight. My friends said it was a great choice and it looked really cute on me. The name of the pattern is Vitamin D by Heidi Kirrmaier and can be found on Ravelry.
I am taking a lace class on Saturday with Anne Hanson at Crazy For Ewe and I was just talking with my friend Sue and she said something about “homework”. I said, I didn’t read anything about homework and then realized that I had forwarded the email to her without actually reading it!!! Why didn’t I read it you ask, well, when I got home yesterday from work, we had a house guest. He was 2 years old and we were in charge of him while his mom was in the hospital having his new baby sister. I forgot how active a 2 year old can be and how unsafe my entire home was, so no, I never went on the computer and if I hadn’t talked with Sue I would be quite embarrassed come Saturday.
This is what I was working on today! I love it!! This is Yarn Harlot bound!!!
So, now that I have confirmed that I do indeed have homework, I am off in search of the right needles and yarn…..! I think Yankee Pride will be perfect….needles are somewhere….I think looking in daylight is my best bet.
I am off to watch some mindless TV, as I have been dyeing all day with wonderful results!!
Happy Knitting and Sweet Dreams!
Whew, Sunday already, time flies while working in a yarn shop during a massive sale. To say that I am tired would be an understatement.
Some of you might find this little “story” amusing. You know I now have the iPhone and we have an iPad as well. I am loving the iPhone now, we had to get to know each other better, but we are good. I am going to say again, that I am really tired. So my husband tells me that the gadgets can talk to each other. I think okay, that seems plausible. I have some great photos on my phone that I wanted to transfer to my iPad so I could upload them to Ravelry, so I began hitting some buttons and waiting and nothing happened. So then I put them side by side and thought they might need to be closer, still nothing! I then decide at 11:00pm, that maybe they need to face each other and this is when my husband walks in and looks at me like I am some sort of boob! He asked me what I was attempting to do and I stated, well, I am trying to get my pictures from here to there and you said they talked to each other, so I thought they might need to face each other to do that, but still nothing. I still see no problem with this scenario, except that I am not getting any results. Hubby steps out of the room to laugh and then gives me a cord and says, if you plug the phone into the iPad, you might get better results and then left the room laughing so hard……says it’s the best laugh he’s had all year! You all can picture what went down, right? My kid can operate this stuff better than me and NO, I did not think a cord was necessary……details!!
I have a new favorite pattern that I have been blabbing to anyone who will listen and frankly, it has turned into a future KAL. It is called the Easy Folded Poncho by Churchmouse Yarns and we are doing it in the Rowan Felted Tweed, which was 40% off this weekend at Crazy for Ewe. I was so enthralled, that I bought it in 2 colorways, eggplant and teal.
I just love it!! And the Rowan Felted Tweed makes a beautiful light, but warm fabric, perfect for the car. I know that is warm out now, but this will be my go to garment for the Fall!
Happy Memorial Day and Happy Knitting!
