This was another one of those projects that I thought would be “mindless” but it really wasn’t. I was going to make another “six pack” but decided it was too much work with all the loose ends as each petal is started individually and then knitted together. The “tie” portion is an I-cord with a 3-needle bind off. Perhaps I’ll make more in the future, but for now I am content with just one to add to my “gift stash”.
I love this book, “One Skein”. I purchased it by mistake with my 50% off coupon thinking it was another book that I liked with a similar name. However, it is a “keeper”. Don’t you just love those coupons!
I started and completed another project but I can’t tell you what it is just yet as it is a gift. Once the recipient receives it, then I can post pics. I hope to mail it out within the next two weeks once I find the right packaging and extras.
Yesterday, I went to my LYS. I was so bad that I can’t tell you how much I purchased till I get over the “guilts”. I did purchased Debbie Bliss alpaca/silk DK which normally sells for $8.95 /50 gr. ball. I purchased the yarn for $3 a ball. I arrived at exactly 10:02 a.m. as the doors were opening at 10:00. I had difficulty finding parking and it was a madhouse. I should have known better. The shop has an old dog that you trip over as you enter. He barks because most customers bring him a dog bone and he expects you to have one. This poor black lab was nearly trampled in the rush of customers.
I’ve almost completed the bunnie sweater and hope to start assembly tomorrow night. My goal is to bring it with me to R.I. this weekend when I visit the grandkids. Pics coming real soon, hopefully!
