Now it feels like Fall.
I have my sacrificial victim. Although he’s too small for a Jack O’lantern and must become pie. That’s OK- pie goes really well with cider and warm scarves and trick or treators.
… and yarn shopping… which is Ok because I destashed by giving away some in the contest, right? I also enabled brought a few new converts knitters into the cult coven fold just like sheep, via a costume shop field trip last week to my LYS. Such virtue certainly deserves a reward, yes? Like the pusher getting his for free.
This is what I scored purchased:
Schulana Kid Seta- for a lace scarf with beads. I have some clear crystal beads for this and in the interest of making sure I don’t procrastinate about starting it after Christmas I have threaded them onto the yarn already.
Cashsoft 4 ply- I plan to make a scarf in which the colors ombre from the darker to the lighter. after Christmas
I have been virtuous in other ways too. I have finished another Christmas gift:
Wisp- in Suss Fishnet. I was not so crazy about this yarn. This is the second Wisp I’ve done and the 1st one just seemed so much easier. Then about 3/4 of the way I discovered I was knitting on 6’s- not the 8’s I used for the 1st one. Duh. But it’s done, one more down, how many to go?
I have also completed this:
A super secret infintesimal part of a group project that cannot be revealed at this time. It’s Rowan Handknit Cotton, which I do like, for cotton anyway, and it’s actually a very nice bright green. My photography skills camera couldn’t really get the color.
Now let’s see… there’s that hat to do and a scarf and what about that pie and I need to get out the sweaters and scarves and I couldn’t have gotten that much bigger over the summer, could I?
