Thank You Niina

I came home on Wednesday and Greg said "You got this crazy looking package from far away." I knew immediately who it was from, my secret pal, but not where. It was from Finland!
The package contained a lot of great stuff. Some yummy wool/bamboo yarn called Cloud, and some hand painted sock yarn called Mokka-sukka, a little change purse, a keychain, a mitten pattern book, and a trivet. I loved it all! Thank you Niina!

Kintting Funk

I think I may be snapping out of my knitting funk. Here are the reasons:

  1. It looks like it may be starting to get a little cooler here. (But, I don't want to jinx it.)
  2. There are a lot of babies being built as we speak. I know of 4 future babies in need of cute clothes.
  3. I love love love some of the new knitting books that are coming out. Custom Knits, want it. Alterknits Felt, love it. Mason-Dixon Knitting Outside the Lines, need it.
  4. Christmas is coming! I haven't started a single project!

Wish me luck!

Montego Bay Scarf

Tuesday, August 05, 2008

Great Package

I got this great package from my Sock Yarn Swap from Your Stash spoiler merrygentlemen. She specially dyed the purple & green yarn for me!

We are going to Pennsylvania this weekend for Greg's birthday. That's almost 30 hours of knitting time round trip. If that doesn't jar me out of my knitting slump, I don't know what will.
AND, I finally finished my Montego Bay Scarf. I finished knitting it about a month ago, but didn't start putting fringe on it until sit'n'stitch on Friday (see, I couldn't even get myself knitting at sit'n'stitch). I finished the fringe last night & I love it! If it gets cool enough I may even wear it this weekend.

Knitting Rut

I don't know why, but I'm in a complete knitting rut. I don't really have the desire to knit anything. I don't even have an urge to read about knitting. I barely knit during the car ride to and from Chicago. The only time I knit is during sit'n'stitches. All I want to do is veg on the couch. Do you think I have Mono?

Thank You Secret Pal!

There was the best package waiting for me when I got back from Chicago on Sunday. Thank you so much Secret Pal! I love the yarn and the pattern. And, the way you placed the order through The Loopy Ewe...genius.Chicago was a lot of fun. Naturally, Cirque du Soleil was wonderful. We also got to hang out with friends and I got to see The Bean. I love The Bean!
