I heard on the radio that cool kids are leaving facebook and Twitter and going back to blogs. I guess for once I'm ahead of the curve. Mostly because I could never get into facebook, and forget Twitter. I really didn't like that whole concept.
A friend and I went back to the local yarn shop RIVER COLORS STUDIO
I went today with an idea of the project that I wanted to buy yarn for. I ended up getting yarn for a different project I am making a 'scarf' called SEV[EN] CIRCLE It has seven connected rings. They are knit in 10 row sections. Since they are knit, the edges automatically roll up making knitted rings. I bought a a deep purple wool, and a light purple cotton and a variegated cotton that has the light purple along with peach, rose and brown. I don't buy cotton yarn normally. But I have to say that this yarn (Berroco) is a way nicer quality than the Sugar and Cream yarn I buy at JoAnns or Walmart to knit/crochet washcloths.
I like this pattern a lot because it is easy, and unusual.
I also bought a couple of skeins of taupe sock weight yarn. It is hand dyed, so it is different shades of taupe. I will use it to make a shawl. I really love making and using shawls.
Today, a guild friend came over to try out my HQ Sixteen. I'm ashamed to say that I seldom use it, and since I brought it up to my sewing room, I haven't turned it on. It's actually nice, and now that it doesn't have selvages hanging on it, maybe I will try using it to quilt something.
Have a great weekend!!
