So, last week, I mentioned how much I wanted to do the queen bee sweater (still do). I even went and joined the KAL group. I'm waiting for the sale, which starts aug. 1, to buy my yarn. Well...over on the group, someone had posted that they had a couple of the skeins that they wanted to let go of. I emailed her, thinking I could get a bit of a discount and feel pretty good about it. She gifted them to me! I was totally shocked, amazed, appreciatave, and humbled. I will certianly pay it forward....... So, here are the 2 skeins of BFL, and another wollemeise, purchased from a stash, to make my sister some custom cabled gloves for christmas. The wollemeise is actually a really, really dark blue.

I've been knitting away on my color

- You go to sears to buy a washer and dryer and pick out the washer with an "old fashioned" agitator because you can felt in it. - You go to the furniture store and fall in love with a leather couch, and the only thing you can think is "wow, my rams and yowes will look great on that!" I know I've been a bad blogger here lately. It's all I can do to keep up with the house stuff. I mean, really, have you THOUGHT much about where you'd like the switch to turn that light on/off? It's a million decisions and totally overwhelming, but in a kind of fun way when you see it all come together. So, knitting-wise, I'm still working on my color affection (affliction?), for the second project of camp loopy. The third project will probably be announced this week. I also fell in love with a couple of things this week. Knitter's Brewing Co. is having a watermelon sock KAL. I'm a sucker for watermelon socks. The kit will be here on Monday. I also fell head over heels for the Queen Bee sweater, just trying to justify the yarn purchase. It IS almost my birthday, right?? This week, I'm planning on finishing the dogwood socks. (they had a little doggie accident, but it's all good now). It's supposed to be HOT, so small knitting is the order of the day. Keep cool, y'all. I'll try to be a better blogger, promise.....
