Those three words have been uttered by just about everyone in the world, I think, and are self explanatory. On to knitting...
I finished my shrug. Unfortunately, in the middle of snapping a couple of pics of me wearing it this morning, the batteries died. So, you only have a front view of me wearing it until tomorrow when the batteries are recharged.
I really like it. As you can see, I managed to get long sleeves with the amount of yarn that I had.
Pattern: Top Down Raglan Shrug
Note: Pattern also includes directions on making this a short back and longer tapering back shrug.
Designer: Michelle Ciccariello
Yarn: Almost 7 balls of Endless Summer Collection Connemara in Cabernet
I also finished up my Jaywalker socks.
Yarn: Black Paton's Kroy & Scheepjes Invicta coloris #1704
I also finished my pair of Tiger socks. Now we all have ourselves a pair. I had to take a pic of this because it's cute. To me anyway.
I'm also working hard on my Over the Knee socks.
I hope to have these done next week.
We took a little road trip into Port Dover last weekend. We had a lot of fun and we found the Len's Mill that is there. I picked up some of this new Marble yarn there.
Yes, it's acrylic. Gasp! Oh, so avert your eyes or something.
I like it. The colours are really lovely and it will look great for the pattern in the next pic.
I also picked up some more sock yarn. Hey, it's a sickness okay.
It's a terrible pic, so it's hard for you to see, but I'm thinking of using one of these two colours for the Pomatomus socks. What do you think?
We also all popped into the Needle Emporium today with me having every intention of buying a Jordana Paige Knitter's Satchel. Guess what? I didn't get one. The bags are nice, but I became fibre shocked. I kept thinking to myself, "gosh, I can buy a lot of yarn that would be the same cost of the bag. Then, because I didn't have a specific list [if you know me, you also know that I can't make up my mind quickly. It took me 6 months to decide on a colour of Country Silk for the Lotus Blossom shawl.] I didn't get any fibre either. All I bought was a Fiber Trends pattern to make these.
This store is beautiful. If you ever get to Ancaster, make sure to drop in and see. I'll be back. With a list fer cryin' out loud. I must also say in writing that my husband was very patient with me during this ordeal. I can't ask for more. He totally understood me.
It was also my baby's third birthday last Tuesday. Sigh. Where does the time go?
I love you, sweets! Happy 3rd. Let's slow this next year down a bit though, okay.
