The active projects though, they are things I enjoy at the moment. I wish there was a way to work on all at the same time.
First there is the Booga Bag, started at Knit Camp several weeks ago. I take it to meeting and out in public, since it is just knitting, not thinking involved. I hope to finish it tomorrow at the all day class I have at work.
Next is the Forest Canopy Shawl I started a few weeks ago in the amazing lace yarn I bought from Ray at Knitivity. The picture does not do the yarn justice. Normally I am not at all drawn to a yarn with so many colors in it. Truth be told, I mainly bought this yarn because of how soft it was. I gotta tell ya, I am in love with the colors. It's like, yes, there are alot of them, but they are all just the right color level and it works. I will definitely be ordering more yarn from Knitivity, and if you haven't been to the site yet, you just are missing out!!
I started these socks last week (ok, maybe it was the week before) for my friend Wendy. She is one of those rare friends that is a great listener and when you ask for advice, or her opinion, she gives you an honest answer. Wendy LOVES tigers, so when I found that Opal had a Rainforest Tiger sock yarn, I had to get some. My friend Donna hooked me up (she has some secret Opal connection or something, I looked all over for it, including eBay) and Wendy picked out this pattern from Sock Bug, it's called Bubble Wrap. I'm knitting both socks at once on dpns...magic loop just wasn't for me, I am much faster on the dpns and there is no cable to futz around with.
Last night, I heard the voices again. The voices of my stash. I suppose it is my own fault for moving some of my stash out to the living room where it can work on me. The yarn that roped me in last night (get it? yarn? rope? lame...) was from the amazing Heather of Sereknity
Heather is soooooo talented and her yarn is just amazing. She is known to arrive at our Wednesday knitting night with a big bag of
Oh, and Rusty wanted you all to know that he helped me with the photos tonight...whatta guy, huh?
