Yes...drum roll please.....It's my very first
Leave your name and contact info (blog or email address) in the comments section of this post and I will draw names next Sunday for 3 winners!! Also include a little blurb about what you like to knit both project and color wise.
So can you guess what happened?
Eight years old and still acting like a puppy at times. What concerns me is the "ball" at the end is missing completely and I cant find it anywhere. I have a feeling it may turn up in the backyard later this week. As for knitting, I am progressing on the Mr. Greenjeans cardi. It now has been divided up in to sleeves and a body. I have a few rows to go before I can do the "try on". If you see a small explosion from the Downriver area, you'll know it didn't go well. I also decided that I'm going up a needle size on the Luna Moth shawl. I consulted with Betty at the Yarn Tree who said I might want to given the thickness of yarn that I'm using. The good part about that is I only have a few rows started so I am simply going to do a switcheroo and slip my stitches from the 9 to the 10. The Cable Eyelet Socks are getting there almost finished. Perhaps today?
Speaking of the Yarn Tree, they are having their twice annual ginormous sale this week. The more you buy the more of a percentage you get off your total purchase. Also if you decide that you want to go back for a few more skeins, she will hold your discount. She has buttloads of Cascade 220 in all colors, Berrocco Ultra Alpaca and lots of Opal Sock yarn. I did a little damage. Given the size of my stash I shouldn't even look at any more yarn but she had this great natural color DK weight that I couldn't pass up. Looks like I might be heading back there on Monday for more size 8 straight birch needles since mine turned in to a snack.
Every one have a great week!!
*Did the "try on", I think its actually going to fit!
