Well. . .it’s been a while since my last post, and I really have no excuse for it. I apologize. But I’m here now, and here’s the latest. (Links are to Ravelry, so if you don’t have an account, get one. It is the best site ever.)
On my needles: I have my first sweater! I cast Wicked on a few days ago in Dream in Color’s Classy Happy Forest. I only have two rows due to having to frog back to the beginning after discovering I was off on my count and my crossover stitches were in the wrong spots. . . ^o^ Anyway, hopefully I’ll have some time to myself with it later on today.
On my wheel: I have some Corriedale dyed in reds, roses, pinks, and tans. I bought a pound of it for an excellent deal! (It was *slightly* felted from sun exposure, but with some TLC it spins up very nicely.) So I sectioned it into three long bits, and will 3-ply it onto itself. I have one bobbin done, two to go. It’s such a nice day out, maybe I will be able to work on that too! . . .ambitious, aren’t I?
On my mind: My latest obsession is with buttons. I don’t know what started it. . .oh wait, yes I do know. It was Ysolda’s Verity. After knitting it up, I was searching for just the right button to put on it. In my search, I came across several good candidates. Discovering one button inparticular that I really liked, I couldn’t let the others go. So I got them. And I love them. But I don’t know what exactly will become of them. I’m sure I will find some use for them, but for now, they will go into my newly formed button stash. ^_^
So, that’s the latest. I’ll try to post more when there’s more.
