Everywhere

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.  Finished socks 4-17-2009 7-34-45 AM

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.

  • You’ve been busy as a bee. Don’t forget to save some energy for your visit here! That hat will really be adorable and your FLS is looking great.

  • Once you get past the garter st. this sweater goes pretty quickly (I’m on my third…it’s now my go to pattern!). For size, I found that if you go to one size smaller then your measurements it will fit like a dream! It does tend to grow soit works out better going smaller.
