b. I 'm obsessed with knitting the ballband Dishcloth pattern from the Mason Dixon Knitting book/ ballband Peaches and Cream cotton yarn!
c. I have a very messy Yarn Room due to an inability to JUST SAY NO TO YARN!-Obsessive Compulsive Knitting, yes, I know!
Now, time SP 10 Show and Tell...My wonderful SP10 gal is named Katie J over at Maylee Beezir and she sent such lovely goodies again. I am sooo spoiled! Katie sent yarn and a pattern for a beautiful cable poncho. I am in dire need of a quick knit poncho-ie thingy to wear with jeans since I experimentally felted( read shrunk) my blue and ivory poncho last year. I looked like a tent in it with those lovely horizontal stripes so I thought if I could ever so carefully downsize it a bit....Nope! So this pattern is more suitable I believe and my past experience knitting with Plymouth Alpaca Grande tells me this is going to be a heavenly knitting experience!
The Succulent Wild Woman Book...well....Yeah! Right on Sisters! With two XY chromosomes guys in my household this book promises to be just the dose of estrogen this body needs! The soap is chock full of oatmeal and it has a delightful, clean scent, which I love. I'm drinking the tea as I am posting this and it smells like Big Red Gum, which is a favorite of mine, and it is just delicious. Spicy! To go with how Succulent and Wild I expect to become! The other pattern is for the terrific bag below....
Knit with Sunshine Sugar and Cream cotton yarn; just how did Katie know I've been wanting to knit this bag for some time now. Well, now I have one ready made and waiting to make the next trip to the grocery store or yarn shop with me! Great job, Katie! Many, many thanks for all the effort you put into making this exchange so much fun for me!
I nominated Katie for Best SP10 Pal and hope she wins!
Lest you think all my time has been spent answering lengthy questionnaires and opening SP10 Swag, I'll have you know I've been knitting my fingers to the bone too!
My friend Winnie from the St. Joe's Knitting Ministry motivated us to knit some slipper socks so I experimented with 2 stranded Red heart Camouflage I had on hand to knit this pair in baby size. That's my 2 toe up socks on one long circular needles OFF the needles FINALLY! No second sock syndrome! Ready to cast on for the next pair!h
Lastly, I completed my house warming gift long ago promised to my co-worker. I know such peace now, however temporary! Just need a bit of blocking and some ribbon and they're outta here!The alternative Log Cabin cloth was a nice change of pace for me, and it used up some scraps at the same time!
Have a terrific knitting week!
