What is the knitting equivalent for “her eyes were bigger than her stomach”? It applies to me regarding current projects, yarn stash and projects I want to begin.
I did finish a hat and scarf yesterday. They are having a drive for handmade items at school, so I thought I would make something. The scarf I knitted is such a fun scarf. If you need a fairly last minute handmade gift, this pattern is great. It knits up fast, and it is such a fun scarf to knit. Well, I enjoy dropping stitches on purpose. That never gets old for me.
So at least I do have one thing finished. I am also more than halfway through on 2 other secret projects. I am looking forward to putting up photos of those after Christmas.
But then I am ALMOST done with the first sock for David’s “wheat socks”. I don’t know why I don’t just finish it up. Maybe then I know that I have to start the second one. Second Sock-itis abit on these. It’s a pretty fun pattern, but it’s dark gray and I am going to have to get more yarn I think. Look at that long foot. It has to be almost done.
I have one leg knitted on a little magic loop monster I’ve started.
I am anxious to get back to my test knit project, but I love the horizontal cable, that I have done so far:
And then yesterday we went to the Fancy Tiger craft show. Great stuff there in a really cool old building in downtown Denver. Unfortunately, it was very crowded and not the best place for a 3 year old (or his 43 year old dad either I think). I had a lot fun looking though for a little while, during which time David wrangled with Davey.
There was a spinner selling her yarn. You can check her out on etsy. I like her seller name “MurderousHoney“, I guess I should find out the inspiration for its origin before I like it too much! She had such pretty yarn. I can’t resist green too well plus I like the idea of meeting the person who actually dyed and spun the yarn. So I bought this. I am thinking shawlette. I’d kinda like to knit one like the Alaska one I did earlier in the summer. This is not the best photo. It’s cloudy this morning and the light is not great.
So that’s yarn and knitting for me. And I haven’t even mentioned “The Sweater”.
But now it’s about time to make cookies with Davey. I have to take some to school tomorrow so we get to have fun baking and then I won’t have them all here tempting me!
Happy Sunday and Second Advent!
