Pink Monkey Knits
Using my opposable thumbs to knit up a storm!
Friday, July 30, 2004
Due to some emotional craziness this week, I did not finish sewing up Sonnet on Sunday as I intended to. I've been making some slow progress this week, stitching while watching the political rhetoric on the telly. So she should be finished this weekend - thrilling! I do need to find some buttons, though. I'll have to decide whether to go the Repro Depot route or not.
I have indulged and started on Doris and let me tell you, she's coming out beautifully. The color combination looks great, great contrast and the Candy FX gives the fabric a silky feel. I've never worked with ribbon yarn before, and it is a bit of an adjustment. I feel as if I'm knitting very slowly with it but that's alright. I was flying through those last bits of Sonnet becase I was so anxious to be finished. This, I'm taking my time with.
In other exciting news, I'll be going to Maine for work in two weeks! In a cold state like that, there has to be some good yarn shopping. Plus, I love to meet people with accents. If anyone has any recommendations, yarn or otherwise, in the Augusta and Bangor areas, let me know.
