It's Like Red, But Not Quite
1. I realized the other day that I need to do a lot of baby knitting. A lot. It seems like many people I know are about to become parents. I have a lot of yarn in the stash that I've been trying to destah but I figured maybe instead of destashing i'd knit it into baby things.
2. This is a little dress in two colors of pink and white. I finished the back and am casting on right now for the front. I had a schematic of what a baby dress should look like, so I've been vamping on that using some cotton ease from the stash. It is coming out pretty cute, if i do say so myself.
3. Rantlet #1: it is way too hot to knit. I used to wonder why people would ever say this, but after three very hot and pretty humid days I can now see why. Even with the AC on, knitting has not been enjoyable.
I've given the pattern my own twist by adding beads. Yay beads!
5. Rantlet #2. Feeding Frenzies. I hate to admit this, but I wasted almost an entire day stalking the sundara yarn site when it was to be updated. Finally...the notice that the yarns were going up....and then they were all there! Quck quick, into the shopping cart,...then to paypal...only to have paypal unceremoniously tell me my cart had magically dissolved.
Enough of this madness (for me). It is yarn. Yarn. Not a cure for cancer. Someone else can have the yarn I've been stalking: the sundara, the wollmeise, the whatever. Life is too short.
