Ooh - One more thing before I get started on my three for Thursday....
If you are local, make sure you stop by Yarn Matters near Williamsburg this Saturday. My friend, Martha Cook from Dying for Art, will be having a trunk show there from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. I can't wait to see what new yarns she's got to show.
Okay, on to my three for this Thursday...
My current projects are:
|The Big Secret Baby Thing|
1. The never ending Big Secret Baby Thing. Ha! "Secret" - who am I kidding. It's pretty obvious but shhh... Sometimes the mom-to-be checks in here. Hopefully she won't recognize it for what it is. I also hope I don't accidentally knit that hair into it. Eeww!
|Urban Girl Yarns, Virginia|
2. Okay, so this one isn't an actual project yet but.... Let me tell you, if that grandbaby was a second grandbaby and not the first grandbaby, I'd be casting that Big Secret Baby Thing aside in a heart beat and casting on with this instead. It's another skein from Urban Girl Yarns and it's going to be another Reyna. A knitting friend had grabbed this skein and was going to purchase it, I commented on how much I liked it, she went to the shelf and grabbed another skein and tossed it to me. I said I didn't really like the second skein as much. The green was more aqua and the pink was more magenta... And she said she liked it better than the first... So we traded and well, it's not my fault I broke my no yarn purchase rule. It's Betsy's fault. Not mine! Betsy's! And now we are both going to knit Reyna shawls. I can't wait to see how different/similar they turn out to be. Oh, and the yarn's name is Virginia. How appropriate! At first I was like, Virginia?? What does pink, white and charcoal gray have to do with Virginia? And then it hit me like a brick. Dogwood! It's 'dogwood tree in bloom' colored and the dogwood is Virginia's state tree. Or flower. Or.... okay, so I'm horrible at that kind of thing. But it's our state something.
|Scrap yarns, mostly from Knit Picks|
3. Can you guess what I'm doing with all this pink, red and white yarn? I'm not enjoying it, that's for sure! Don't get me wrong, despite pink not being my favorite color, I love the yarns. It's the pattern I'm using. Ugh! No wonder the pattern book was on clearance. Anyway, can you guess what I'm knitting? And nope! It has nothing to do with the soon-to-be-granddaughter!
