I went to a different yarn store this weekend, Knitting Today. It was fun to see different yarns than I’ve been seeing the past few months. I still can’t get over how amazing yarns can be. They even had a yarn made of 100% bamboo! I can’t wait to go back again. And I got all the help I needed, AND got to show off. Awesome.
On the down side, my countdown is now under 30 days. I have so many projects I want to do and so little time. My eyes are bigger than my time off, as you can see from my pile of new yarn!
Oh, man. So much yarn. I need to figure out how to somehow store my yarn, now that I have so many different types. For now I might buy those new fangled clear ziplock bags, that are meant for storage instead of food. I’ll have to look for that. Soon.
I was so happy with my first design, the jewelry bag, that I forgot that I made something else in January that I haven’t posted yet. It is also a design I made up: an eyeglasses case made with leftover Cascade Yarns Pima Silk yarns from my Anouk baby dress. I keep it by my bed but I don’t actually use it. It does, however, work well.
Since my last posting, I have been busy. I made another set of denim booties and a baby beanie hat, but they look just like the ones I recently did, so I didn’t take any new pictures. I already gave them away as baby gifts. I still have one sleeve left on my mom’s cardigan to finish. And I’m working on this.
I can’t reveal what it is yet, but it’s my first lace project. It’s made with Koigu. I just love the colors in koigu yarns! I can’t tell how it will look after it is blocked, but I can hardly wait! I have completed 3/4 of it at this point. I can’t decide how to block it. I may take it to work and lay it out on the floor, if I can get pins to stick into the thin carpeting there. I should take a pin to work and test it out.
