On a Quiet Saturday Morning
It looks to me like I can wear a nice chunky sweater to the Stitch'N Bitch meeting in Gainesville - YAY. Love it when it's cold - I guess that's what you get when you were raised in the German Alps. ;-)
In a good mood and armed with a nice cup of coffee, I sat down and finished the Harry Potter sweater. Yup - all done.
Since I didn't know if I had enough of the red yarn, I added yellow stripes to the sleeves to match the scarf. I am sure you can guess whose Christmas gift the sweater is. Wink, wink, nudge, nudge...
Now I only have to clean up the intarsia mess - BLECCH - on the back side and seam it.
I also finished the little Haiku cardigan last week. Sorry it took me so long to post pictures but I did not have time to take them earlier. I finished the sleeves on Halloween. MARTA had a huge problem on my morning ride and we were stuck for 20 minutes. People got so mad. Folks, there is nothing you can do about it. You just get yourself in a tizzy and annoy your fellow train riders. So, I sat there and knitted away and actually finished the two sleeves before I got to my stop. I was quite pleased. He-he-he... But of course, that's because I am a dork who knits everywhere. Built-in therapy everywhere - YAY for that. So, here is the Haiku cardigan - I have some cute buttons somewhere I have to go find now. :-)
And, I won something. Somehow I guessed the correct date when Sandy started blogging. She sent me this beautiful Corridale roving. I just want to roll in it. YUMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMY!!!
THANKS SO MUCH SANDY!!!
Now my question is - should I spin it first or should I dye it first? What would you do?
I am off to get my stuff ready for my knitting group. Gotta pack Esmerelda - I am just going drag my spinning wheel along today - the SAFF loot, books, knitting, etc. etc. etc.
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND - hope you can go knitting with some wonderful knitting friends like I will.
