Isn't she pretty??As I continued to knit, I thought how I should've used the contrasting color as the main color instead but I did not want to have to rip back ALL that work (remember all the suffering I had to endure just to get this far??)
Perfect Day Yarns that Sarah sent eons ago. I don't know what the colorway is but after I did these two stripes, I really wished that I had had some more.
HazelKnits. I am absolutely loving how this leftover skein looks against the main color. :) I was sort of doing a mathematical increase but I just couldn't stop with the chuckanut. Not sure what I'm going to use next after I use it all up. It's going to be a toss-up between my leftover sweet potato
or my leftover rhubarb
I knitted a teeny bit on my girly last night.
I talked to my sister last night and found out that she is in dire need of some hats, mittens/gloves, etc. I've got a little box of stuff that I've been meaning to send her way but I just haven't taken the time to get it all set. Yesterday, the hubs and I went through some more stuff and I think I'm going to mail her out my super cupcake set and I'm going to try to whip up some mittens. Oh, and I get to make her a ski mask!!!! lol. I also learned that the knitted socks I gave to her some time ago (cos they were fitting me too big) are getting a lot of usage because she uses them to sleep in. :) I'm going to have to whip up her own pair of socks while she's here. I'm thinking come next winter, she's going to be a bit more discriminatory about what she wears in regards to hats/mittens/etc. so I have it easy right now.
I have a short week of school this week. We have Thursday and Friday off! :) I'm going to spend both days catching up on reading/letters/knitting/tidying up around here! Oh, and I'm going to be sleeping!!
