Splurge!!!



OK, I went to K1P1 this weekend. Probably good that I didn't know about this place before now. I spent way too much on yarn, but it was beautiful yarn. I got the above pictured lamb's pride worsted for a new felted bag. I also got some other yarns and I will post pictures of them as soon as I can borrow DBF's digital camera. I also bought some bamboo DPN's for my first pair of socks. I went yarn crazy, what can I say.

I finally finished my olympic sweater yesterday. It just took me one more week, so that wasn't too terribly bad at least. Next time, I'll make sure I have some sick days so that I can get it done on time :oP Again, I'll get pictures up here ASAP, I promise.

So, now I'm working on the French Market Bag from the felted bag KAL that was supposed to be done last month. Too much knitting, too little time. I've got about three inches on the sides now and it's supposed to be at least 8 inches deep. I might make it longer since I like a deeper bag. Plus I'm adding frou frou boa yarn to the top, so I need it to be a little deeper for that.

So here I am at work, wearing my new sweater (pretty good since I'm not ashamed to wear it!), watching the rain fall outside. I had a good weekend full of yarn, knitting, and just general fun with DBF. We even bought a paint-by-number kit at Michaels the other day and worked some on those. It was fun doing some crafty stuff with him. Now if he would just learn to knit...

Yep, I doubt that will happen. I'm the yarn ho of the two of us. He did like the yarn I got though. We also played some magic this weekend. Of course we both sucked at the tournament. How come we never get decent cards in any sealed format? Oh well. Maybe next time. Until then...

Knit on...

Pictures! Pictures! I want to see pictures of the sweater! I'm very impressed that you finished. I'll be lucky if Olympia is finished before May, especially since I can now see what I wish I'd done differently in designing the pattern. It's hard to keep working on her when I'm no longer so thrilled with her.
