I am thinking of everyone affected by tragedy! If there is any good to take away from all these terrible events....it would be that it humbles me and makes me see how truly blessed I am.
On to happier news.....I am super happy that fall is right around the corner.....It makes me really get into some fall colors....like this yarn!! My (evil) friend, Ruby, tagged me on FB to this yarn and somehow 2 skeins jumped in my cart.....I promise....I am trying not to buy any more yarn!
I also got the warm set for the Miss Babs Knitting tour. The pattern is La Puima....I am thinking of doing the wine from the warm set with the grey from the cool set....what do you think? Suggestions?
and I got the September skein from Leading Men Fiber Arts called King Max.....
This past week seemed fairly productive......I made the pink shawl for Cynthia (sorry for the terrible picture...I gave it to Darlene to block):
Plus, I made one more hat for her. Cynthia told Darlene that she wears one of the red hats I made her everyday...she even sleeps in it...so Darlene asked her which hat it was and it was the first one I made her....I would have thought that hat would be too small, but it isn't...so I made her one in black and I have a white one on the needles. I had the black yarn in Wollmeise Blend in my stash...and Darlene bought me the white in Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino:
I did not really get a good picture of it before I sent it home with Darlene...so here is a snap from the podcast where I showed it:
I started a potholder and dishtowel for Paige (for her new house):
Clue 2 came out on the What the Fade MKAL....After all my frogging last week.....I finished Clue 1:
and then moved on to Clue 2:
I am on the 7th repeat of section 2, and still have the fading part (3 repeats) and then 7 more repeats with the last two colors.....so quite a bit to do before Thursday. I was a little bummed with how much knitting clue 2 is compared to clue 1....I still have over 18k stitches to do on clue 2:
I saved the best for last....I got a Bags By Awesome Grannie Hippo Tote Bag....I LOVE THIS BAG.....I know I say this all the time...but I really think this might be my FAVORITE bag....I know my favorite color is orange...but ever since I bought a red car...I have really been into red....and this bag has a red lining....I LOVE IT!
I think that is all I have in the knitting department.....Have a great week!
Happy Happy Happy Knitting!
