There have been quite a few things going on in the past couple of weeks, I'll bring you up to speed on a couple of items.
First the Loopy order:
- 2 Skeins of Panda Cotton, Ivory - I plan on using this to try out Kool-Aid Dying.
- 1 Hank of HandMaiden SeaSilk in Renaissance colorway
- Loopy! She is a plush ewe with a shirt that reads "A Little Loopy". I mean after buying yarn and having a stash, who isn't a little loopy? :-) If you feel the need, you can buy one from The Loopy Ewe.
I had a skein of Panda Cotton in the Roses colorway and felt that this would be perfect with her white hair. I decided on a neck cozy, something small enough for me to finish - yet in using a few YO's I could integrate a lace design. Off to the needles and a few hours later I had this:
(sorry for the poor photo...haven't had time to correct it)
I learned a few things on this project, how to make a knitted buttonhole and how to pick up a couple of dropped stitches, one of which included a YO.
Well I have to get back to the books, as this break time was a tad longer than I should have taken.
