Remember when I said that it seemed Barb and I had managed to switch brains? And showed my overflowing knitting bag as proof positive? I still swear that we have switched brains ... but my regular tendencies are attempting to manifest themselves. THIS is my knitting bag this week:
Noro Silk Garden Lite. Upon a closer look, however, I decided that I like it. Enough to keep it around.
Sugar Rush from Queensland. It feels so soft and silky that I'm envious of the little grandbaby for whom it is being knitted.
And then there's the Mother's Day wool from my daughter and hubby -- it has decided it wants to grow up and become this vest:
And instead of WIP (works in progress), I seem to have PIW (projects in waiting)! Turns out that the Kertzer Bamboo is actually a full skein, albeit a slightly disheveled one. I've got a full skein of coral at home and the combination will be absolutely beautiful. All in good time. All in good time.
What's that you say? I'm missing a project from last week's round-up. Really? I am?
Ella Rae's booklet #104 and it is a beauty. I followed the pattern pretty much as written, which is why it is short. Apparently all the girls wear them this short, with the top showing underneath. I'm not totally certain that the sweater is the right size for me -- it may be on the small side. but I have to say that the wool was delightful to work with. Absolutely. It's such a shame that I have left-overs!
So there's my bag for the week. What's in yours?
