YARN!


YARN!

Spent the afternoon at YarnArt fondling the new colors of Cascade 220. Managed NOT to bring any home. However, when I got home I realized that balls of Rowan DK Cashsoft, 4 balls of Regia Bamboo Sock Yarn and 2 more balls of Rowan Tweed jumped in my car with me.

What in the HELL is wrong with me? I need more yarn like, well, like a yarn whore needs more yarn.

I can justify the Rowan Tweed, they are the "just in case I need more yarn " for my Central Park Hoodie. And I've never used Bamboo sock yarn....and well, Cashsoft 35% off? Need I say more?

Central Park Hoodie

If you scroll back a few posts, my sweater looks almost exactly like it did in that picture. However, please note that last Sunday after getting all the way past the armhole decreases I decided it looked smaller than I wanted so I ripped the entire thing out.

My husband gasped so loud the cat jumped.

I knitted all night on Sunday and got about 5-6 inches done and haven't knitted on it since then. For whatever reason, I haven't been knitting on the weeknights lately.

This was a lovely Highland bull that I met at the National Western Stock show a few weeks ago.

Yes, he was a soft and silky as he looks. And he was *very* sweet.

Here's how far I have gotten since last Friday. I'm aiming to have the back finished this week, but at the rate I'm *not* knitting on it, that isn't going to happen.

Coronet Hat #2

This awesome Plymouth Tweed yarn has been hanging around my stash forever. Last time I made this hat, I really liked it but it was a store sample, so it wasn't mine forever.

So, what could I possibly not like about this hat? It's slightly too big for me, but as usual it fits my husband perfectly. He swears it matches his pajamas and wears it around the house.
