This post is later than usual for a very good reason – I was with the Papoose and the Sprout pretty much all day today and as much as I love to blog, share and probably, at times, overshare, if given the choice, the grands are going to win out every time. We all had a blast and laughed and chased and hid and laughed some more. What a blessing of a day! Really, it just doesn’t get better than today. No way, no how. I’ve some awesome photos to share tomorrow – I took about a bazillion – so get ready for some grand goodness then.
ON THE NEEDLES
A little backstory: I bought this yarn about a month ago from Jimmy Beans Wool, mostly because it was on sale and sometimes, the Mad Tosh yells “buy me, buy me” louder than the little voice I carry around in my head that says, “you know, you have plenty of yarn just back in the room and besides, remember Mr. Iknead’s austerity plan? Really, even without the plan, do you NEED this yarn?” YES YES YES, SIT DOWN AND SHUT UP LITTLE VOICE, MAD TOSH IS IN TOWN AND IS TAKING NO PRISONERS!
Mad Tosh Chunky
See why I folded under pressure? Could anyone have resisted?
Then, on Monday, I found the cutest shrug on Sweaterbabe.com and bam, I knew without a hint of doubt that the Tosh was meant for the shrug and the shrug was meant for the Tosh. The stars aligned, the angels sang, the whole nine yards. So, here’s todays WIP Wednesday offering –
#101 Quick Shawl Collared Shrug
Look at the difference in the colors. It’s more of a coppery color than purple, the unwound pic is truer to life.
What do you think? Are they soul mates or what???
Linking up with Tami’s WIP Wednesday blog today. Go on over and enjoy.
