I can’t believe it’s been more than a week since I posted. Whoops. I feel like I’ve been everywhere. I know there’s just so much going on, but for the life of me I don’t know what. Last night I gave a talk/demo on spinning to the Hononegah Women’s group. We all had a blast. I really enjoy myself on these talks. Of course I could talk spinning/knitting forever, so it’s more like get me to shut up. 🙂 Last week we went to a little festival out in Cedarville – that was a lot of fun and as per usual I spent my budget with no problems on some great little foibles and fiber.
I have made a little progress and started more projects. I’ve almost got the body done for my FLS.
I also started a little hat for my little cousin that is turning 1. These cupcake hats are all the rage for my knitting group. I thought she would look cute. Anyway, I’m done with the pesky part, so now it’s the fun part.
I did cast on a few new socks. I’m back on two at a time, toe up. I haven’t done this since I first learned to knit socks, so I’m re-visiting the technique and having fun.
I also finished a pair of car socks – they’re easy enough to knit in the car. By the way this is Wisdom Yarn’s Chicago and the knots were nuts. As you can see they don’t match. At one point I was like whatever and just finished them before I pitched the yarn – knitted project and all in the trash. As you may already guess – I’m staying away from this yarn with a ten foot pole.
Finally I couldn’t resist. I picked up these great little project bags. I couldn’t decide on a pattern, so I got three. These are very nicely done and very inexpensive. A great size and has a nice pocket and good draw string. Super fast shipping also – I order on Friday and had by Monday. Gotta love that.
These came from BlueTulips on Etsy. Go over and have a browse. You know you want too… heheh.
