I placed my first order with KnitPicks, I am in love with the yarn I ordered. Shipping seemed to take a little longer then I am used when ordering online. But, it didn’t take longer then their website said it would.
First I ordered some sock yarn for myself. Yes I am going to attempt to knit myself some socks. Should be funny to watch. lol So the sock yarn I ordered was Dancing in Rumba and Hula. I think my first socks will be with Rumba, it looks very fallish in person and I am allready in the mood for fall.
I also ordered 4 skeins of Memories in Spring Prarie. This is destined to become a clapotis
for my mother’s birthday. I love the color of this in person, although balling it has been a major pain.
We are traveling home to visit family and for a business trip for hubby in a few weeks, so I will have approx 20-22 hours in a car round trip to work on it. Plus the time sitting around with family. Funny thing is my mom knows I am making it, and helped me choose what color yarn to use. She just thinks its for me!! lol
I’ve been working hard on Kat’s babette blanket. I am on the 8th section I believe. There are 10 sections to the original design, however it makes a little square throw and I am trying to make a twin size blanket. I did up the hook I am using so that will change the finished size a little bit. I am very anxious to get the original 10 sections complete and sewn together so I can start figuring out what I need to patch together to make it the right size.
I’ll try and take some update pictures this evening.
