Knitting Up A Storm!

Thursday, July 05, 2007

Today I am heading off to Romni to take advantage of their 20% of sale with Brenda. I really have no business buying more yarn, but I do need some fun fur to finish J's felted hedgehog. Now that it is 20% off, I feel better about buying this icky stuff. I have knitted the front and paws, and only need to knit the 'fur' of this little toy. I can not believe how cute it is. I can't wait to see the finished product.

At Romni, I hope to find a few Elizabeth Zimmerman's books to add to my collection - The Opinionated Knitter and Knitters Workshop. I recently bought Knitting without Tears and Knitter's Almanac. I've heard so many people praise the words of EZ and wanted to check it out myself. I like what I've read so far, so I would like to have the rest of her books.

During my daily blog reading, I clicked on my of my feeds - mochimochiland and was shocked when I saw a picture of her MIL's stash room. I felt jealous, curious and sick all at the same time. I think if I had that much yarn, I would pass out from the stress of trying to knit it all up. It would be awesome to walk through it but hmmm....I don't know.

In other news, my friend Katherine started a blog - the knitted tool box. Katherine is one of those knitters that knows everything about knitting and is the go to person if you have questions, issues or whatever. Her knitting is amazing. She can do anything. She should post some pics of her FOs, because they are truly spectacular. I think her skill could rival the best that is out there - shame she doesn't write a book on techniques. Hey Katherine - there is an idea for you...Like it?

Anyway, off to spend some dough. Have a good one.
