OK, I know many of you on the Eastern side of the US have been enjoying summer for a long time now, but we have to see it on the calendar to really believe that it might happen!
Today, the calendar matches the weather we are having! SUNNY with a few clouds and I think we are up into the low 70’s. If you are laughing then I know you do not live the Pacific Northwest.
Another thing that is here…
The yarn for the BOYB is in at my LYS! I picked Plum for the main color, and the stripes will be Lake and Cactus. I love the seed stitch, but hate to knit it. Ya know what I’m wondering… why don’t I learn to knit “the other way”! I know, I make it sound like I’m knitting the wrong way (giggle). I’m a proud “thrower” what can I say. I have tried a few times and then go back to what’s comfortable to me – throwing. I just wonder… would seed stitch go quicker if I knit the other way?
Bottom of BOYB completed!
Other happenings in my knitting life…
I found these wonderful bags. A little RED sock bag and RED project tote at the Loopy Ewe. I can’t resist bags, totes, etc and RED – no will power. No I didn’t order them. I have to save something for hubby to get for me.
I’m boxing up my 1st box (1 of 3) to send to my SP12. Looking at it makes me think I need to buy all this for myself! Will Power Girl! I will be good. I will be good. I’ve ordered some cool yummies on-line and they should be coming in over the next week or two. And I have some local stuff to put in too. The fun part is putting it together in a way that makes it feel like it is the most wonderful gift in the world. I love the wrapping part just as much as the shopping part. I’ve finally written down what is to go in each box and what I still need so I don’t just keep buying and buying! Hope she likes it all!
I’m going to try something new this weekend (and as I type these words I wonder if I can do it) I’m going to only work on one project all weekend long. No switching back and forth and jumping around. Am I the only one that does this. I have NOT been true to my commitment to only CO for new projects when an old one is finished. I bet I have… oh, don’t even go there… maybe 5 or 6 new projects… NO, I said don’t go there! If you are reading this Sherri, pretend you didn’t!!! 🙂
Wonderful Brown and Pink Wallaby… mommy to be is having a boy not a girl! Off to the “later” pile with it.
BOYB… I can’t stop knitting on it today! (this may be my weekend project)
Tofutsie purple socks – need by 07/18 – still hanging out in my knitting bag. (I carry them around with me in case I get stuck somewhere and feel the need to knit on them.)
Last weekend was Knit in Public and I am still working on getting the rest of the pictures together to post. I haven’t forgotten.
I started this post on the afternoon of June 20th, and I was all set to post it when I got home. For some reason when I got home I had a bit of dinner and crashed on the sofa. It was beautiful when I left work, and when I got home we had fog. The joys of living at the beach. Well it is now 4:30 in morning (Saturday) I woke up at about 2 am because the dogs needed to go out. Then I came in and I’m wide awake. I know I will regret this later, but I’m not going back to bed because I’m afraid I will over sleep and I need to be ready to go at 7. Today (Saturday) is the second sweater finishing class in Kent. I’m very excited about going and learning more. So when I leave the house I will be stopping at Mocha Madness to get a 24oz White Rabbit! (white coffee w/ white chocolate – iced of course! They say that the white coffee has much more caffeine, but not the coffee taste, more of a nutty taste. I love the taste of coffee, but I NEED the caffeine.)
I see it is starting to get light outside so I’ll knit a bit and then get ready to go. I’ll post more later this weekend. Have a great Saturday!
