Not a hugely productive week with knitting. I was otherwise distracted by the huge undertaking of getting the beginning of year BBQ and meet the teacher night executed at the boys’ school.
Now that that is over, I can set my sights if being a little more productive on the knitting front this week.
I did manage to complete the left and right front panels of the baby pram sweater I wrote about last week.
Now I just need to get through the back, 2 sleeves and a collar.
As a healthy diversion from the sweater, I also began making another yarn bowl. It hasn’t been as fast as the first one I made. Thinner yarn. But it is sturdy!
Yes it is brown. But I quite like it… I am thinking of adding some pink trim.
Another thing I did this week was check out the grand opening of a Michaels very close toy home. I usually have to drive for 20 to 30 minutes to get to one… But this one was only about a 7 minute drive away!
They have some grand opening specials. For fibre enthusiasts… They have the Loops and Threads IMPECCABLE yarn on sale for $1.99 a ball.
Yes this yarn is 100% acrylic… But for hats and mots for two rough and tumble boys… I am ok with that.
With the stage they are at, the nicer and more luxurious the fibre is, the less likely I am going to make them something with it 🙂
This pile cost me $30 Canadian and is destined for many kid-friendly projects in the future… And maybe even some yarn bowlz!
