As the deadline for the completion of Michael's sweater rapidly approaches I find I am preoccupied with thoughts of other knitting projects for which I've been procurring the necessary yarns.
So much for my Knit From The Stash Resolution made in the New Year!

But, wait!
My good intentions to somewhat reduce my stash will be realized through the CROCHETING of the Smooth Waves Afghan, found in the 200 Ripple Stitch Pattern Book! I am not biased against crochet by no means! What inspired me was the beautiful Ripple made by Yarnstorm, so take a looki-lu at her blog, why don'tcha?

The Three Amigas have been enchanted by Entrelac Knitting for some time now, so we established our own Unofficial KAL to satisfy our desire to finally share this knitting experience.

The rules are only that you select two balls of Noro Kuryeon yarn and you are free to knit whatever type of purse/tote your little "ol knitting heart desires, using only the 2 balls! I used the pattern in The Encyclopedia of Knitting just as a guide. I will post pictures at later date of my progress. Not so bad once you get passed the base triangles!
More books I just couldn't do without! Great patterns in both and well worth the scooties!

I am waiting for Sarah Dallas's Knitting to come in at B&N because their is a terrific hot water bottle pattern featured in it. Again, I must credit Yarnstorm for providing the inspiration!

That's it for today.

I've got a sweater to knit!

Have a fabulous knitting week!

Great blog, Mrs. B! So nicely organized..someday maybe mine will be too. To answer your question about leaving yarn clippings for the birds...I leave them in a plate on my deck railing. The birds are already used to feeding there in the wintertime, so they're not touchy about the area. You could place a bunch of your own bits of nesting materials anywhere you see them frequently in your yard; porch, etc...good luck and happy birding.
