No, seriously. See...I knit this yarn;
|Stacy Charles Cosmos in Golden Sunset|
into this cardi.
It's a good thing that I'm pleased with the outcome of this cardigan because (and I don't mean to scare you off of knitting this because I do think it's worth it in the end) this was one hell of a B.O.R.I.N.G knit and alot of it! ARG! Needless to say, it's all behind me now and I'm quite tickled with it.

I also attended the Kitchener-Waterloo Knitter's Fair last Saturday. I did more looking than buying this year. I gotta admit that my current list of WIP's are giving me a guilt trip and well, I'm gonna work hard on clearing them up to make me happy. There was one kit that I bought that really took my fancy, though.

She will be my next largish knitting project. The yarn is cotton and is made up of 7 thin plies. There was one on display at the fair at the Adirondack Yarns booth where I bought this one. It is sooo soft! They had so many colours to choose from and I was befuddled as to which one to go with, so I went with something fun and what my gut said. I'm learning to like what my gut says, but we're still having trust issues.
I gotta say, now that I look at this colour in the pic, I love it! =))
Of course, I only reserve monogomy for human relationships. I also have a fun sock in the works for a friend that hates winter. These should brighten her days up quite a bit.
Have a good weekend.
