I made this some time ago while waiting to find out what kind of baby was coming.
Not exactly the shade of blue I was going for, but since I have no sayso in sky matters, this is the best I can do. It's a nice 72 degrees though.
I didn't get much knitting done this week, also contributing to the very snarky me, but made a little progress on hats for Rabbitch. 3 done, 1 more on the needles.
The 2 little skeins are Knit Picks Ambrosia in Fog 80/20 Baby Alpaca/Cashmere oooooo for the corrected version of Totoro.
Toward the end of the week and largely contributing to dragging me out of where ever I was, are these:
From Knit Picks to make this. It's 100% Pima Cotton but it feels very silky. It's bulkier than I really like, but I do want to try it.
And the Knit Picks Bare a Fingering weight superwash 75/25 wool/nylon for this:
I'm nuts, but I'm going to try a little dyeing experiment. I went to lunch on Friday immediately after reading Crankygrrrrrl's blog, also a major contributor for lifting my spirits because of her meme. ~snif~ That was soooo nice of you! The Crankygrrrrrl furthermore taught me that we can dye yarn with Wilton's! and that's why I made a hasty retreat to Michael's to get some. You know how things can disappear as soon as YOU want to buy them?
As you can see, I got the news. Now I can finish the afghan and make the Baby Bolero & Hat from One Skein. I'm behaving and actually have an almost completed swatch.
Now that knitting business is done, I give you silliness. Remember the welcome ducks?
They're ready for Halloween. Hope I will be too. Have a fun weekend all! Oh, one more, a photoshopped, no-duh, pic. An e-mail received a long time ago.
Ok, do I eat a banana or the cat's food?
