Hello all! 🙂 It’s Thursday…time for another purse!
This was gifted to me by Botgurl. 🙂 She knows how much I love purple and I think she gave this to me just because. heheheeh. Thank you, Bot! 🙂
I finished a little something this week. 🙂 Some cute little baby booties.
Isn’t it CUUUTE? Now i do have a full pair. Why am I only showing one shoe? In my haste to clean the booties up, i clipped something I thought was a loose end. OOPS. ended up being a stitch. Does that mean this isn’t finished? hahahahahahahaah. So i need to fix that little boo-boo.
- I couldn’t get gauge w/ the size 2’s. I went down to a size 0 and i still can’t get gauge. OH WELL! 🙂
- When i was half way finished w/ the first bootie, someone informed me that the knit picks shine (what is recommended in the pattern) is a fingering weight yarn. that’s why i can’t get gauge on a WW yarn. DUH
This is a cute little pattern w/ lots of oohs and aahs when you are done. 🙂
So Janice at Simpatico Yarns came to me w/ this old book and suggested we do a shawl out of a doily pattern (just like the Hemlock Ring blanket idea) and i thought it was a FANTASTIC idea. We have no idea how much yarn it’s going to require or anything…we are just jumping in w/ both feet. 🙂 She’s making hers our of Inca Alpaca that she has a ton of. I”m making mine out of Arucania in a beautiful purple color. She started hers yesterday and i started mine tonight. I knit about 28 rounds before I put it down and realized how late it was. 🙂 it didn’t help that I didn’t start it until 1230a. hahahaha. Anyway..it’s a knitalong we are doing at the shop and it’s free. There are no fees to pay, and no expectations. We are just going to support each other and learn as we go and compare notes. I can’t wait to see what we come up with 🙂
here are my beginnings. Don’t be jealous, y’all. 🙂 HAHAHA i’m SOOOO in love w/ the color!!!
