I got my final SP8 package yesterday. My pal came through. She has been SUPER UBER busy with so much going on in her life so she was a little late getting the package out. But OOH was it worth it!
She sent TWELVE skeins of Dale of Norway Sisik. YES TWELVE! More than enough for an adult sweater and possibly some left over for a kid sweater to match!! 😀 I really like the red tweed! I was contemplating purchasing some yarn like this to make a sweater for Tano a la Brooklyn Tweed’s Seamless Hybrid. I will be swatching and casting on for that as soon as I get my Amazon book order with EZ’s Knitting Without Tears.
She also sent 2 books: Yarn Girl’s Guide to Kid Knits and For the Love of Knitting. Lots of great kid patterns in the first book and the second book will be perfect for curling up with a cup of tea and reading about knitting as opposed to reading knitting patterns! It looks like it has some great stories!
So a big thanks to Kim for coming through for me and being a great pal!! SMOOCHES!
On knitting knews, I finished Lauren’s Clapotis. This has got to be one of the fastest knits ever for me! It’s gonna look sooo beautiful once its blocked. I’m debating on whether I should purchase Knit Picks Blocking Wires set or go to Home Depot and try to find those welding wires everyone says are just as good. I finished the clap while at court with TWFKAM (The case has been adjourned YET AGAIN because of the unpreparedness of her and her attorney – he didn’t even show up! I made sure I told the Judge how I felt about that crap and she was very sympathetic. We have to go back on September 27th.)
But I digress….
So since I finished the clap, I cast on for Sizzle last night using the Debbie Bliss Cathay. OMG this yarn knits up into such a lovely soft fabric!! I will definitely be using it again for more shells and such. Beautiful.
And here’s G-Luc modeling his Koigu socks!
