I bought this sweater kit and it just arrived! WOOOHOOO

I'm so excited. I can hardly wait to work on it!

I found this pattern and I thought of my friend. She should have it and thus I post the URL here for her.

Love you!

Driving, driving driving

My mother was here for the weekend. I drove her all over the place looking for horsey stuff we never did manage to find.

We went yarn shopping. She bought yarn and patterns. I bought yarn and patterns. I'm only missing one skein of yarn for the third AS faire isle I want to make. I could probably start if I wanted to - but I also have four other sweaters started that I should finish first.

Sometimes when I sit down to knit I just can't decide what I want to work on, because I want to work on them all.

Sillyness takes over

Knitting Purist
You appear to be a Knitting Purist.
You are an accomplished knitter producing beautiful
pieces with a classic feel. You sometimes
lament losing half of your local yarn shop to
garish novelty yarns. Perhaps you consider fun
fur scarves the bane of knitting society and
prefer to steer new knitters towards the wool
and cotton blends. Some might call you a bit of
an elitist but you know that you've been doing
this craft long enough to respect the history
behind it and honor it with beautiful piece
that can last a lifetime.

What a weekend.

I went to the opening day of hunting yarn sales with my friend G. We had fun and spent too much money. I get most of mine back since I bought yarn for my mother. Some nice Cascade 220. I bought myself some lovely Schafer that is teal and blue and purple. It will make lovely socks with the new pattern I bought.

I also bought yarn for two new sweaters. One to replace one my son helped launder for me. Mohair felts so nicely! The other will be a fisherman's sweater in a nice cream color. I have several patterns so I will select one when I get some other things done.

I have a couple socks to finish, but this week I have to finish my goldwork so there will be very little knitting. Bummer.
