Did you miss me? It feels like it has been years since I’ve blogged – either posting on mine, or commenting on someone else’s. It has really been one of those busy weeks that didn’t leave a lot of fun or down time. I went to Tampa on Wednesday night (no fun – back on Thursday night) for a meeting, and work has been really hectic. Which is good, and I’m not complaining – it was a little slow in the beginning but its picking up nicely and I’m really enjoying it.
Going to Tampa did give me a little knitting time…so here is my first FO for 2008!
What can I say about this yarn? I love it. The color is beautiful – hard to tell in this picture but this has blues and purples – very pretty. And soft. I plan on buying more of it. I am a little sad that these are going to Larry – but it has been a while since he has had new socks and one of his older pair had a hole and had to be tossed, so I suppose it was his turn.
And how amazing is this – this is how much yarn I have left – probably enough to make a small pair of kid socks. Maybe anklets for Cieara. Definitely a good bargain. I think that when I buy more for a pair for me – I just may learn how to do toe up because its sort of a shame to waste this yarn!
And the needles? Love them. I can’t believe what a difference it made in knitting to use the KP Harmony needles. I switched them to my old bamboo for the flight to Tampa since I was paranoid the TSA would keep the KP’s – but I found I just didn’t like knitting as much with the bamboo as much as I like the Knit Picks. So consider this a recommendation!
The pattern was good too – very easy, not complicated but looks a little nicer than a plain rib.
I shouldn’t show you this (because I don’t want you buying the yarn that I want) but Opal sent me an email – her friend Rosegardenfibers finally got an Etsy shop. Go take a look – this is hand-dyed Sterling yarn from Kraemer’s…..gorgeous. So go look, but don’t buy my yarn!
I am so glad it is Friday – I’m looking forward to relaxing tonight, and tomorrow is my knitting group. I have Cobblestone going, and I’m trying to think of what to start next – socks or shawl? Decisions, decisions…..
Have a great weekend!
