Knitters Are Reproducing By The Thousands...Maybe More!
Children of knitters everywhere are beginning to experience awkward symptoms~~Adult knitters are rejoicing in their success!
Don't be upset or deny the possibility~~Rejoice!! This CAN happen to YOUR kids!
Be on the lookout for these strange habits and be HAPPY for it:
*Questioning knit patterns in store bought sweaters, saying "I can do that"!
*Feeling the gravitational pull to Yarn Shops EVERYWHERE
*Going brain-dead at a Fiber Festival or the sensation of panic & anxiety upon parking at such a Festival.
*Obsessively collecting yarns...yes, Sock Yarn counts!
My baby girl has picked up the needles again! She was taught 6 or 7 years ago and has finally decided it's "cool" to knit! What's next...blogging about it? I am a proud KnitMom!! Hey...what about a bumper sticker~~"Proud Parent of a Knitter"?
Beware actual Knitting Content follows~~
Speaking of Knitting, Yes I've been busy knitting since finishing up all my Christmas gifts. But first Sonya had been calling my name, she's been feeling VERY neglected as of late.
So the Eva Braun saga continues...if you are a new reader of my ramblings or need a refresher go HERE
Here are the first 2 skeins.
I love this fiber, I put it through 3 washings and left a small amount of "grease" in it. I can't begin to tell you how soft my hands are after I finish working with it...yet another bonus!
What will it all be when I'm done? I'm hearing whispers of a cabled cardigan...what do you think?
Feel like fondling fiber now huh?
Oh...about the knitting!
I'm up to my "arm-pits" in Kauni! This is as much fun as a cable pattern, I LOVE it...it's one of those projects you don't want to put down each new row the pattern is revealed!
Yesterday's road trip gave me about 3 hours of pure knitting time!
YARN P0RN & Accessories~~
I have so much to show and no time to do it all in this post, so I'm going to scatter items about in future posts.
My buddy from the "Homeland" GourdonGirl was VERY good to us this year!
Here's the "fiber content" of the package (be patient...I have other goodies to share from her package)
Pretty~Pretty Opal Neon...in my favorite colors of course! But then again I LOVE color!!
From "Down Undah" my buddy Terri sent me a GREAT Aussie Knit magazine, which has lots of projects I've earmarked.
...and THESE adorable stitch markers! SO ME!! Huh?
I did "gift" myself this year...sometimes it's better that way! So I custom ordered from Scout these!
My very own UVA sockyarn and Dallas Cowboys!! Aren't they pretty!?!? (don't answer that Mary...BTW-I predict your team will win today)
Keep On Knittin' & Spinnin'!!!
