It's my day off. I have puttered around the house, it is already 2pm. Time goes by so fast. But I'm sitting here thinking that I need a nap.
I got online to order some blocking wires for my knitted shawls. I have a nice set, but I can't find them anywhere. I only used them one time. This set I am going to put in a pvc storage tube and I am going to store them in the closet with the rest of my knitting things. I didn't have a central place to store the other set, and they weren't in the usual places. No doubt they will turn up at some point.
While I was at KNITPICKS , I ordered cotton yarn to make this LACY LEAF SATCHEL.
I love the color that is in the pictured bag, but I decided to go with BITTERSWEET which is described as a "dark chocolate" color yarn that looks black from a distance. I hope I like it. At least is isn't RED which is what I would usually attract me first.
I am almost finished with my second AESTLIGHT shawl. I love this pattern. I only have about 5 inches of edge to go and this much yarn.
Each little scallop has 16 rows. As much as I love the pattern, I don't know how I will feel about ripping back. Good thing that I did less repeats of the lace pattern, or I would already be out.
In case you are wondering about the pink thing, it is a yarn ball
Actually, i have been up to several things. While I have been 'disposing' of projects that I have no intention to finish, I also am finishing things that I thought I never would bother with again.
That's about it. I always have lots of ideas, which I will get to at some point. In the meantime, I am going to enjoy the summer breeze.
