Yes, it’s my first blogoversary! Hmmm…how should I celebrate? I’m thinking that I already did. I hit the bi-annual yarn sale at The Yarn Tree in Flat Rock and managed to do some severe damage. Did I buy more sock yarn? You bet! I also indulged in some more Berroco Ultra Alpaca in a few shades, some Cascade 220 and some really lovely Cherry Tree Hill big loop mohair 2 skeins in a tropical parrot color that is destined to be a comfy and cozy wrap. I dragged my friend Beth with me and she managed to do a little damage herself, also indulging in the big loop mohair in shades of charcoal and plums.
As for the knitting front ta da! finished my Opal Petticoat socks, I managed to get them away from Chief and wore them today. The little jog on the right cuff is on account of a clothespin mark while drying.
I am starting back to working on my Kevat lace shawl. I have a really nifty gadget from knit picks that makes working with charts a breeze. It’s like a chart easel with magnets to hold everything in place. An X-mas prezzie from Mr. Larj along with my swift that I absolutely love. No swearing while winding my new stash! I am also contemplating starting in on a pair of the Fiber Trends felted clogs. My die hard favorite fleece slippers have about bit the dust.
Thanks to all who read my blog and comment on my knitty rants. Here’s to another year of knitting and the camaraderie of fellow knitters that keeps me connected to all of you by a strand of yarn.
