All day I dream about S.E.X.
So I went to a new yarn store yesterday. It's called Why not Knit & the ladies were lovely! Welcoming & very easy to talk to. I ended up buying yarn for all but one of my projects in the queue.
With the encouragement of yahaira and byrony I got the Rowan Polar for the lace leaf pullover from loop-d-loop. I got it in red hot which is a really great fall red. Not too bright, not too orangey!! Plus at $8.00 a ball it was a steal!
I also got some brown sheep cotton fleece for the ballet tee (also from loop-d-loop). I got it in a really great steely grey blue called Rue.
I still need to get some yarn for the fingerless mitts.....
I probably won't start any of these til' I finish up the cardi I am working on now but I do plan on swatching for the lace leaf pullover tonight.
Oh & before I forget, camping pics are here.
I've just become completely obsessed with knitting lately. In a good way though!
I think this sweater screams for red as well. Oddly enough I have been trying to stop knitting so many things for myself in blue & red. So what yarns do I buy? Blue & Red of course!! Oh well, maybe next time!
Also, you kick so much ass with knitting! That doll is AMAZING! Plus your tops are gorgeous, as usual. I want to knit something to wear (other than a scarf) but I'm just too scared! Perhaps I'll get enough courage someday. :-)
Just PM me on craftster if you want some pattern recommendations!!
