New Project

I went to The Knitting Sisters this weekend and found this yummy, yummy yarn! It jumped into my bag, I swear! I picked up 2 balls each of the Mauve and the Grape. They are beautiful and so soft. I knew that I would make something for me, but I wasn't quite sure what.

Friend pointed me towards this Skinny Scarf from DIY and I think that I am going to do some variation of it. I started last night and cast on 425 stitches! That's a lot of stitches. Well, it wasn't until lunch today, after 3 rows of 425 stitches, that I was changing colors and realized that at some point I had screwed up! So, I completely frogged it and will start again tonight, maybe. I'm just really passing the time until Socks that Rock land in my mailbox and I can focus on the fun yarn that Blue Moon has picked out for us this month!

And, I have a new knitting bag. I'm not a Vera Bradley person, It's a bit too flowerey and loud for my tastes. Friend wasn't either but she has crossed over to the "dark side" and now has not only a Vera Bradley knitting bag, but also a purse and wallet. She is possessed...

But, I digress...

I found this great bag and the pattern is now discontinued, but I love it! I know that I am slightly behind the times, but I just think it is cute.

Now, that's my story and I'm sticking to it!!!

The countdown for socks is still in progress...

Thanks for your comment about my friend, Brian. I really miss him.

I'm trying to get to Knitting Sisters soon. I have a gift certificate I got for Christmas that's burning a hole in my hand.

Looking forward to seeing your Cashmerino all knit up into something soft and pretty.

I've had to kick that yarn out of my basket several times. It sure is soft and yummy.

I also love your new bag! Tres Chic!

I have the "Lady B" version of the Lexie Barnes bag in that same fabric -- LOVE IT! Perhaps I need the smaller one, too? No, no, no! Must. Resist. Bag.... Can't. Resist. Bag.... ;-)

Oh, and I love, love, love Debbie Bliss cashmerino aran. Such a joy to knit with, and such a luscious fabric it makes! Enjoy! What will it be?
