I am a knitter OUT OF CONTROL people! I can't stop casting on for new projects, even though I have a tonne of shit on my needles. Man oh man, for the love of God, someone stop me. Nope, just kidding, don't even try it!
I am almost finished one of these - Saartje's Bootees
using some Sockatta yarn in light blue with flecks of white. These will be for my soon to be born niece. I don't like babies in pastel colours, so I thought these would be perfect. I'll post a picture of them as soon as they are done.
I also want to knit this
(I love this lady's one - it is perfect!!). The pattern is from the Summer 2005 IK issue. Also these booties
will be made to match the sweater. I will be using elann's sonata in a deep chocolate brown. I also have some alpaca in a deep wine colour that might look smashing for a baby sweater. Yep, I want my niece to look styling.
I also plan to make a whole bunch of the ball band dish cloths, but I can' t seem to find any sugar n' cream cotton in Toronto. WTF? Damn Lewiscrafts for going out of business. I'll have to settle for the Bernat Handicrafter cotton, which isn't as nice as the Sugar n' Cream. But you have to use what you can get, I suppose.
Anyhoo, in other news, my friend and I have booked a trip to Punta Cana leaving on November 11th. It will jsut be the two of us. I am so freaking excited to get away!!!! I still can't decide what to bring to knit. Yeah, feel sorry for me.
Because I know how lucky I am to be going away, I've started a pair of wool socks to give to a good friend of mine, who is a hockey mom like me. See, I'm not that selfish!
Have a good one.
