Hi everyone.....How have you been? I've been great.....I have only 4 more days till my friends and I go to my sister's lakehouse for our 5th Annual (I can't believe it has been 5 years) Stitch N Bitch Retreat! I am so excited, I can hardly wait. I am sure I am going to take way too many projects to work on.....but I will be knitting all weekend with fabulous friends! :) I hope to have lots of pictures for you guys next week!
As for this past week.....well, I finally finished my briochevron cowl....I had about an inch of the lips blank left after I grafted the two ends together.
I started and finished a hat....it is called the Head Hug Chemo Cap and it Hugs your head. The designer, Laura, reached out to me on Instagram to tell me about it when she saw I was knitting chemo caps for Darlene's niece and the pattern is FABULOUS! Thank you Laura!
I forgot to get a picture of it blocking, so I had to take pictures of it on the podcast. LOL!
I did a swatch for Paige's Bulky Sweater.....and then decided to cast on for the back. This sweater should go fast...but I am probably going to put it away till September. I want to knit it along with Darlene and she is busy with other projects right now (and so am I).
I worked on my Daddy's Ranger sweater
and my Boxy Cape....
You might get tired of seeing the Ranger and Boxy Cape...both of them are at a point where I just keep doing the same thing for many inches.
I participated in the Dishrag Tag with my online LSSK group and I got my package this past weekend. Susie T made me two fabulous dishcloths and sent me lots of fun goodies. Thank you Susie!
I also got a wrist ruler from Starlight Knitting in OR. I got black, and it is a little hard to see the numbers, but I wear black every day and I really love this bracelet!
I also got some new yarn for a cowl that Paige wants. Paige found a guy that knits on Instagram and asked for a couple of things that he has knit. She wants this cowl and this hat.
Here is the yarn for the cowl (I have 3 more skeins coming from ebay tomorrow...this yarn is discontinued).
I have some Madelinetosh Chunky yarn in the Paper colorway coming for the hat.
My last bit of news.....Paige has a contract on a house!
Keep your fingers crossed for her!
That is all I have....Have a great week!
Happy Happy Happy Knitting!
