I have another one of these going in a beautiful hand dyed lace weight yarn for moi' . It is a super easy pattern by Heartstrings in case anyone is interested in checking it out.
Not much else going on with me - work has been crazy this week trying to catch up from vacation and get ready for a business trip on Monday morning. I have not stitched at all since returning from vacation. I hope to get back to my Sail Away SAL this weekend but we have sampler guild sunday afternoon and that is not a project I can work on there. Has to be more mindless so I might take my Plymouth sampler and do some fill in work. It's always nice to see what my friends are working on.
I tried to finish this post earlier today but did not get it done - I am up at 4:30am not able to sleep - urghhh - I guess slipping into my wool room and getting on the PC is going to relax me and put me back to sleep - humpf !! Doubt it but I sure hope so. I would say TGIF but it is already Saturday morning - so glad I don't have to get up at regular time for work and that I have 2 whole days to do what I want to do. I'm sure those of you who work can relate.
I sat and tore out the whole completed back of a cardigan - it is gorgeous hand dyed blue sky alpaca yarn and it is a lovely fallish orangey color - I saw a wonderful cardi in the new fall Knitscene mag and it was in the exact same yarn same color - so that got me thinking about that UFO and knowing exactly what knitting bag it was stored in - I set about the find it and recycle the yarn into a hopefully enticing new project. I am trying to knit from stash when possible - One would not believe how much yarn I have - more than some shops I've seen and all neat stuff - not much for the donation bin in my yarn stash although I am going to try and have a "yarn sale " this fall when I finish (if I ever finish) cleaning out my old house. I have so much yarn - I really don't even have room to store it in my new house - egads - what a predicament.
I'm afraid my stitching friends are going to grow tired of my yarn talk but in the fall I have a terrible pull to all things wool - hence my wooley thoughts ~~~~ hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and can enjoy a taste of fall in their own favorite way.
