How is it that when you are a knitter, and an obsessed knitter at that, everything is related to yarn. We use terms like, "fiber obsessed", "yarnaholic", etc. Don't get me wrong, it's a major part of my life, my hobby, my love, my obsession. I've had some people say to me recently, "Why aren't you done with that yet?" Hey you try it, let's see how fast yours goes!! Do some people think all I do is sit and knit and that's it..... I do have a full time job, I'm a single mom, a new kitten to take care of (boy I've forgotten what a handful kittens are..heehee). I guess that's my knitting related rant of the day. On to better things.....
Almost done with Phildar Onde top for Taylor.... just have the left front neck to do and then the dreaded seaming. Thankfully there are no sleeve seams to do. :)
Secret Project Revealed
Sorry I was so mysterious about this one. A mother's day Tank for my Mom. She tends to visit here once in a while so I didn't want to ruin the surprise. This was done is Patons Fresco. 100% Microfiber ribbon yarn on size 9 needles.
I've started a Kristina Bag in Noro #89 and Cascade 220 Black. I was itching to do some color work that I would actually like doing and would use (gave up on the previous one....too many seams, hmmm...do you see a pattern here) I will also be starting a Lily Bag with the Noro my Secret Pal sent me, in it's very pretty muted pastel shades it will probably become a quick favorite Knitting Tote.
I am DYING to do the Charlottes Web Shawl, there are many other bloggers out there doing this. I know, I like to follow the crowd. They are so beautiful with lots of different colorways. The Threadbear Fiber Arts Studio have a great section all about this wonderful Koigu. Which I have never had the pleasure of being tempted by in person, only from all of my fellow bloggers. I'd love to make a spring/summer colored one as an accent to a pretty black dress I own, and plan to wear to a 'fancy' event this summer. Stay tuned for Charlotte updates.....
And of course you know I couldn't resist posting new pics of our kitten. Sophie was the name that seemed to fit her best.... a little different, a little prissy, and a little fun. She is my new knitting pal. Her favorite place is right on my shoulder under my hair. Too Cute!!! I sent Taylor to clean her room the other night and this is what I found. Not much cleaning was done evidently.
