Not to say that we all don’t love a good bargain, but there is something truly magical (especially for Brandy) about the 2 for $3 bin at our local craft store. Every time we walk by it, I know that Brandy will stop, bury her face in it, and give it a big hug. I took this picture to prove to her that she is having a very personal and somewhat inappropriate relationship with the bargain bin. Don’t even get me started on her behavior with the new scented Sugar ‘n Cream yarn.
On the Mary front, I finally finished my turtleneck tube vest from Stefanie Japel’s wonderful book, Fitted Knits. I love the top down construction – it is very intuitive and just makes great sense. I even used the same color that was pictured in the book – loving the periwinkle (not very imaginative I guess).
Up next – out of Twinkle’s Town & Country Knits, the printmaker’s pullover. I am done with the sleeves, but I had to special order the size 19, 29″ and 24″ needles. Love how fast the sleeves went – but I feel like I am knitting with kindling, damn those needles are big!
I guess to sum it up, knitting is full steam ahead over here – hello fall, I love you!
