I feel like I was away forever, when really it was just for a weekend. It was too long! I feel like I missed out on so much – the blog world continued without me.
ok take a breath….
so let’s catch up so then we can pretend nothing happened.
I didn’t do too much on my bias top except for the waistband. I’ll hopefully start on the back sometime today, if not it will have to wait till the weekend (I have a weird work schedule this week). So what knitting did I do? My bf’s mom got me some yarn and what did she get me?! Four hanks of Blue Sky Alpaca Sport Weight. I was like holy crap! Does this affect my status at Y.U? Then I was like holy crap thanks!! lol So I started to knit it up right away into Glampyre’s One Skein Wonder. I love the color and the feel of the yarn, this is the first time I knit up alpaca. I’ll be done with the shrug today so I should post a pic later on in the day-I’m hoping it turns out right since this is the first time I pick up stitches (hated it!).
My lovely hopefully future mil also gave me some cotton so I’ll be knitting up a shrug (a good bias…do we see a theme here?) from the Spring IK. Of course I still want to knit up the boobholder so I still have to decide on what I can start. I don’t know what other yarn I could use for the boobholder that is currently in my stash, sigh. Speaking of IW, what do you all think of Wrap Style (I think I’m going to love it) and this new knit scape mag (do you think it’s going to try too hard?)
oh I found out who I get to spoil for SP5 and that someone is going to spoil me soon!! Hi SP!! lol
I’ll be making a little package soon I hope.
Hopefully I’ll be meeting Illanna, she of tank top fame, this weekend in Philly. We are going to try to go to the Yarn Harlot book signing. I hope we get to do some knitting as well, I’m so looking forward to this. Of course I’m going to badger Illanna for info on my hero Ms. Teva, who she gets to meet! I’m incredibly jealous…but in a good way.
vysews came up with some great project and yarn organizers that I will be using soon. And don’t worry I didn’t forget about you….I’m taking that cicco yarn for the paris loop. I’ll send you a message soon.
keridiana keeps impressing me with her craft powers, I can’t wait to see her new site and her project for the new SNB.
oh one question before I go and finish the shrug….should I change my template? Apparently everyone else has, but I don’t know how to get a new one that isn’t your generic blogger template. Any help?
also where can I get Phildar? I’m in love with this pattern (at least I think I am) but I have no clue where to buy it.
ok I’m off for now!
