Thank goodness its Sunday. I'm beat. It was an exciting easter weekend for our little family! It all started off with some yarny-goodness at Knit N Knibble. I ended up buying five skeins of Baby Ull for a baby blanket and one more of the Noro for my own booga so I can make it larger. I knit the first five rows on that damn blanket three seperate times before I realized that SK2P meant slip knit 2 together pass slipped stitch over not knit 2 stitches seperately. DUH!
In other news, I am seriously considering joining the lace knit along. But, I'm worried that it will take me way long to complete the lacy shawl! I've already cast on for the Kimono Shawl but I've been working on the baby blanket since Thursday night. Meanwhile, I find out that two other family members are also pregnant with a third due any day. This can only mean one thing: MORE YARN. Mike is starting to give me dirty looks when he sees me yarn shopping online (hey Joanne's is having free shipping until the end of this month!). He knows nothing. Then there's the eternal battle of the baby yarns: natural and hand wash? Or acrylic/nylon machine wash? They really don't make this easy do they?
On Saturday, a couple from church came over to visit. Their daughter is learning to crochet so I donated my Idiot's Guide To Knitting and Crochet. Then they looked at my wheel and were in awe of its power and beauty. Its nice to know that people are genuinely impressed that you can spin yarn out of a chunk of fuzzy fiber. Later that night when we were over at a friends house....Valerie (recipient of booga #1) casually joked about needing to learn to knit so she has something to do when she has free time at work/on business trips. This could get interesting!
