Since the tomten (Aaron) has been making the most commotion around here I thought I'd try to get that thing on its way to being finished. I am seeing daylight at the end of the tunnel, but people, I think the light at the end isn't heaven, I think it is hell!!!!!! I mean really, look......it goes on forever!!!!!
I'm just a few inches short of putting all the stitches back on the same needles to begin the hood. In order to stave off complete lunacy every couple rows or so I diverted myself with some nice, fun ball winding. I've had some lace weight for quite some time. Ladies, you know the trick, you put a new dress in the back of the closet and about a week later when you pull it out to wear and the hubby says, "Is that new?", you say, "This? No I've had it stuck back in the closet for some time now." (Now, now, Sara, this is just a joke, you know your mommy would never do that to your naive, I mean sweet, caring father, this is just an example of things I've heard other women talking about. For shame, for shame!!!!!)
Anyways, back to the lace weight. You know I have several KALs starting in Jan '08. For most the yarn requirements have not been released but I went by their names and what most of the KALs have called for and went ahead and ordered my yarn from Knit Picks. So I had a ball winding party. Here it is, a Basket O'Fun.
Oh, yeah, another KAL addict, Sylvie, turned me on to a new group, I Love K And C Alongs. (knit alongs and crochet alongs). You ought to come join. We are starting a new KAL beginning this Friday for a gorgeous scarf done up in fingering weight. It is called: La Dentelle Belle Scarf. Gosh, I need some suitable fingering weight. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm............
Sylvie's blog's name is: Sylvie the Procrasknitter. Isn't that cute!!!!! Aaron and I came up with a new name for mine: The Dominknittrix. Oh, yeah!!!!!!
After reading Loribird's comment I thought I'd add more info regarding the lace weights shown above. Following the order in the picture below from left to right: All are Knit Picks lace weights.
