Addicted to Knitting

Archive for September 13th, 2008

I can’t believe how fast this week flew by. Even being sick didn’t slow it down. Monday I went to class and was fine. Took apart a computer completely (with a partner) and put it back together. It booted so that was great. After class I went by a thrift store ( one of my weaknesses) and found some great old hats! I would show you the photos I took of them but…it seems darling daughter of mine borrowed my camera for the retreat she went on this weekend. When I was in this store I started sneezing. I thought it was because of something in the store. By evening I was worse. Tuesday I had to take dd to the ortho and was much worse afterward. Wens. I stayed home and knit all day. I made a darling hat for my son. Its the half pipe by Deb Stoller. Again a photo will be forthcoming when I can do it. It looks so cute on my son and it was a fun knit. I was a bit leary about 5 inches of ribbing but it went well. I used some Elann Chunky  in Lichen. I like this yarn alot. DS thinks its itchy but I think it won’t be when its cold outside.

I am working on a snowball for dd. she lost the one I made last year. This one is in mulled wine (mauve) I wanted to get it done while she is gone. Its hard to do Christmas knitting with her around. She is very observant you know. While I was looking at the pattern  I kept seeing the add for the square knitting needles from Kollage. It got me curious and I checked out their site. They have some interesting stuff. Did you  know there is yarn made out of milk? This is puzzling to me and I will most likely have it on my mind all day.  I put a link in so that you to can puzzle over this.

Dh starts vacation today. It’s a working vacation as he is putting a roof on my parents house. (not alone, my brothers and one BIL will be helping.) I am looking forward to having some time with him. I am going to get a sitter and take him on a date tonight! Sound like a plan?

Have a great weekend!
