My kind of day
Wow - what can you say about a day where knitting, bread baking, a new magazine and pink dogwoods all factor in somewhere? Awesome comes to mind.
As you can see the little blue/gray/green Maile Sweater is finished! I just love it; I'm especially grateful to all my Ravelry friends for their kind comments. It was an intense little knit, but one I'm very proud of. The scary part was when I knew I was going to run out of yarn. At one point I was searching the internet and Ravelry wondering if anyone would be kind enough to sell an odd ball, but when I discovered I had enough to finish, just not bind off, I was inspired (around one o'clock in the morning) to add and bind off with white yarn. Add a white crocheted hem to match and voila! So glad it all worked out - next time I go stash busting I promise to make sure I have slightly more than enough for the project.
And this special issue of Stitch?? OMG. OMG x 2. I want to make EVERYTHING in it. Run right out and check it out - well worth the extra cash, I think. I don't usually fall prey to the siren song of sewing magazines, but this one is a must. The felt pot holders? The apple coasters?? The aprons???
