is all knit up. soooo cute.|
need to weave in all my damn ends, close up the underarm holes, put the buttons and seeds on.
need to weave in ends on hat, put seeds on.
need to weave in ends on bootie, put seeds on.
need to knit up second bootie.
silly me, I decided I'd see if I had enough pink to make a blanket; started it yesterday. Thought it would be cute to make it round, but soon discovered that round is going to use a lot more yarn than square, so it's going to be square. frogged an 8" diameter circle, started over this morning. should be cute.
bought some incredibly soft llama yarn at the Orcas/Eastsound farmer's market this weekend. not a lot, just enough for some accents on a hat or something, but it was irresistable.
Interesting experience: went to the market, saw the pretty yarn, went, "oooo, pretty yarn!" and headed over there. There were two women sitting and spinning, who basically just looked up and smiled; i was just another knittin' tourist. One of the women was using some amazingly cool colors, so I said, "I just love the colors you used on the roving," and that seemed to be a magic word or something, because all of a sudden they opened up an started being all chatty about what they were spinning up, and pulling out other things to show me that they were working on (not for sale stuff), etc etc. It was kind of amusing.
