Or so they say. Mary’s got my number. The truth is out. Does everybody know? Why was I the last to find out? Its true. I have been contemplating lace, and not just of late.
I have been wanting to make this (yes, its lace!) lovely scarf/shawl. I have cut it out of a magazine about a year ago. I bought some alpaca for it, a while back, although I think it is too thin for the project. But Mary has an alarming truth on her post today. We do blog hopping, we see delicious yarn, and we want it! Just what happened to me now, on her blog. How could you do this to me Mary? She sends me to this place that sells the most fabulous alpaca I have seen in years. I am in REAL trouble now!! But really, who can resist an alpaca yarn named “chocolate covered kisses”?
As if I need more yarn now.
Look what came in yesterday! From TheKnitter.com. I know what you might be thinking, but really (and if you have knit with Trekking XXL, you KNOW what I am talking about…) Trekking XXL has a taste of more. It just does.
I have been seeing out there in blog land a cute idea. Sock of the Month. This will help regulate the SoxBug. Every month you knit a pair of socks, regardless of what else you got going. The idea is that everybody does his or her own sock design, not limited to a specific one. Who’s in? I am not one to start a KAL, but feel free to do so, and let me know. I’ll join.
AND- the Mermaid has arrived!!! It was really fast, and I am very pleased, although I am not even allowed to take out the instructions until next week (I did squeeze the yarn and I am pleased to say it is softer than I thought.) No, I did not get the purple/pink colorway, sorry. In NYC the dark colors work better... It is the first time I bought anything on eBay. And now that I joined the Hanne Falkenberg KAL, I see that a number of members bought from this seller, Cucumberpatch UK successfully before!
I also found a very thought provoking question on someone’s blog, “what does knitting mean to you” and I was going to share it, but- I lost the blog! Has it ever happen to you? You find a blog you like, by your favorite way of blog hopping (I love to read other people’s comments, and visit their blog) and can’t find your way back, no matter how far back in the history you search? That will teach me to BOOKMARK!!
My reversible hat is coming along nicely. unraveling the crochet chain cast on was easy ( I did it slowly)
Now I have to get off the computer and on to my paperwork and my New York project for Project Knitaway. No I can’t show it yet, it is to be revealed only tomorrow at the Project Knitaway get together. As a matter of fact, tomorrow I’ll have 2 knitting events and I am thrilled. So- no more blog hopping for me for the next 24 hours, cause you know how you can get lost in blogland!!
So leave a comment and say hello. I'll be back in no time and I'll visit with ya' again!
