Good & Bad day

I went to the urologist today and things are looking better but I'm still hurting from the lovely test. So, I decided I needed some retail therapy. :-)

I picked up 2 more skeins of the Karabella lace weight Mohair but in dark lavender. I'm going to use that with the pale, pale pink to make the Feather & Fan stole from Folk Shawls. It will be wider than what she has though since I want to cover the bootie.

I also picked up some short Brittany #7s and some size 6 bamboos from Cyrstal Palace. I was going to get some Addi Turbos to try to make socks but I think I will hold off on that for now.

The Beginning

I have decided to create this blog to keep track of my knitting, mostly.

vest for DH
"A Handsome Triangle" from Victorian Lace Today
"North Sea Shawl" from Folk Shawls
Hooded towel for nephew

It's actually kind of rare for me to have so few WIP and I actually have a couple other things I'm sort of working on. I need to finish the trim of a baby bonnet and make the sacque. The booties are done. I need to sew up a toddler sweater but just bought the buttons for it.

I am planning a baby blanket in yellow & white but haven't quite decided how I'm going to make it yet.
