Yesterday morning while checking in on one of my favorite blogs I saw THIS luscious scarf!!!
I went IMMEDIATELY to the Knitspot site, purchased the pattern and started researching yarn.
I R.E.A.L.L.Y like the yarn used for the sample knit, which was purchased from Old Maiden Aunt.
Lucky me, I received an EM from Lilith of The Old Maiden Aunt site, letting me know that more yarn would be available for sale today and I was able to snag a skein.....albeit an expensive skein!
There was a snafu with Paypal and the amount I paid was correct, but it was in U.S. Dollars......which when converted to the Euro ended up being more than I anticipated...I knew the exchange rate wasn't great....but goodness......over double what the Euro is?!
Oh well......this is going to be a scarf for me......so I guess I am worth a $30 scarf!!!??!!
Also on the needles but no photos yet: Bellini shawl, Jaywalkers, No Purl Monkeys, Garter Rib Stitch Noro Socks (which I am SOOOO not loving the Noro Sock yarn despite my love of all other Noro yarns), another pair of socks that I can't seem to remember the name of right at this moment, mystery garment knitting.
AND.....spinning along!! This is a BEAUTIFUL, rich, royal purple color from Christy!!
Christy gave me this ONE POUND ball of fiber awhile back.....I am just now back spinning after a hiatus and hoping to get this finished over the long weekend, POSSIBLY plied....(keeping fingers crossed).
Also hope to have time to cast on for a knitted cupcake tonight!!!!! I have wanted to make one of these 4-EVER!!!!
