Sometimes I have a hard time remembering whether or not I've bought something. Usually this is related to craft books. I know there have been times I've been standing in a quilt shop, staring at books, wondering if indeed I DID actually already purchase a particular book. Has this ever happened to you? You've looked and looked at something over and over again and just can't recall whether you've already bought it?
Yesterday I purchased the same yarn, in the same colorway, that I bought just two weeks ago at Knit Michigan. Duh. I knew I really liked it but thought for sure I was picking a different colorway. Uh, no, not this time:
Knitting on the Fringe gave away a free dropped stitch scarf pattern with the purchase of this scrumptious yarn. I cast on for the scarf late last night and I finished knitting it this afternoon:
The colors are so rich and saturated -- no wonder I love it! Besides, what's not to love about 100% baby alpaca???
I used my Hamanaka Futte Futte felted ball maker last week. Here are my first two efforts:
They're not super firm so I think I might try to felt them some more. It was a really super easy process -- much faster than felting by hand. I've got plenty of roving to use for more of them!
Once I completed knitting the dropped stitch scarf at Right off the Sheep today, I looked around for a yarn I could use for a second scarf. I choose this yarn from Reynolds:
I started picking up the stitches for the neck edge of the Imagine sweater after selecting the Smile yarn. Now I just need to finish knitting the neck and get going on sewing it all together.
Early day tomorrow with the plumber arriving at 9 am. You have to remember, I'm still on 'vacation' so I'm not used to getting going so early on a Monday morning! I hope he's not too costly!!!
