Howdy Ya'll! Did you set your clocks forward Saturday Night?
I hope you had a fantastic week. I am about to go crazy with this continental knitting...but I am not giving up yet.
Let me start out with some stash enhancements......remember that yarn I told you I ordered from Poland....to make the Hanging Cocoon for Antonio? Well, some of it made it...and look at these packages....they were about to fall apart by they time they made it to me.
Now, I only got 2 of the packages....I still have one on the way...I hope it does not get lost. I got all 6 skeins of the Charcoal colorway, but only 2 of the Red....so I am still waiting on 4 more skeins of Red.
Darlene got a skein of some Knitted Wit yarn as a gift from a podcast called The Knotty Knit Wits....and I fell in love with it. So, I had to get myself one....the colorway is Autumn Rainbow! Isn't it cute?
Then, I met a lady on ravelry that wanted to buy some of my DVD yarn...and she has these little knitted voodoo dolls as her ravatar and I had to look up the pattern....it is called "VooDoo you love me?" So I bought that pattern and I may either use this Knitted Wit yarn or some Yowza yarn I have for these stuffed voodoo thingy's I want to make.
That is it for the stash enhancements...so onto the knitting.
I really only worked on two things this week....my March socks and my Citadel.
I got both sleeves started....now I just need to finish both sleeves, and do the collar, a small amount of seaming and I should be done! I know that sounds so easy....but it will take me a long time....but I will keep cranking away at it.
Oh, I also did maybe 3-5 rows on my 3 Color Cashmere Shawl...but I did not take a picture.
The only other thing I did was to start that Cocoon for Antonio...now, I could not wind this yarn on my yarn ball winder (because the yarn is more like ROPE). However, I was able to use the awesome nostepinne she got me to wind the rope...this cocoon is not going to be easy....the rope is stiff and hard to knit with.
Well, that is really all I have....I know it does not seem like much, but I tried.
Don't forget to wear Green this coming Thursday for St. Patrick's Day!
Happy Happy Happy Knitting!
