I comfort myself with a trip to Yarn Mart, which is having their once a year sale. Work has slowed on the Constanze cowl, but continues. I started a drop stitch shawl while in DeQueen last week and for right now, it’s getting the majority of my knitting attention. Here’s are a couple of my newest aquisitions.
First up is Trendsetter Yarns Flamenco, colorway 200. Here’s how the directions read: Spread open mesh. Turn mest sideways. Turn end back to hem. Knit through open woven box at edge one hole to one stitch. The sample in the shop was a really loopy and soft scarf. This has potential, I think.
Up close and personal
Next is Sock-a-Licious Kollage, color 7808. I love the soft grays in this
I have great plans for these babies; quite possibly Christmas stuff, but only if I don’t fall in love with the projects before then. Odds are about 50/50 right now. Mr. Iknead and I, along with the little Ikneads are headed for a week at the beach starting on Friday. This means I have to make some decisions on which yarns and projects will be vacationing with us. It’s so hard to choose!
