Good Morning! And Happy New Year!
Not much to post today. Still working on a wip for a test knit…
But there is one other thing I am working on, that since Wednesday, when I photo journaled all of my stash here , has been cast on. On Wednesday, I claimed I only had 1 wip. That was true… Then. Only I spent a lovely afternoon at The Purple Purl on Thursday. Working on my only wip. Got many pattern repeats finished. Then I got up to stretch and walk around the store… First mistake. Then I began touching, ooh-ing and aawww-ing… Second mistake. Then my feet stopped walking in front of some squishy yarn, and I read the label… Third mistake. I was hooked. Alpaca it said… Luxurious it said… I cuddled it and took it to the cash register… And sadly… I don’t remember anything after that… Until I am at home and it comes out of my bag.
This is it. All wound up and ready to go…
It is amazing to touch… And last night… When I celebrated in being half way done my test project (formerly my only wip), I cast on the 28 stitches required to make this
Here is what I have so far.
It is amazing. I would like to think that I will be done the test knit wip before this… But who am I kidding?
If you haven’t done so already… Please make sure to read my post from Wednesday… It is quite a sight. And believe it or not… There is a plan there, one for the rest of this YoP year, and one for 2014.
