It’s day 5 of the Summer KAL/CAL and I’ve already got one project under my belt.  My husband didn’t want to model it for me, so I’m going to wait and take pictures in better light and then post them!  I have to admit that I’m a little nervous about subjecting myself to other people’s opinions.  But all kinds of people around town have complimented me on my knitted items, so that makes me feel better.

And now that I have at lest one thing finished, I’m going to go back to work on my shawl ’til I can order more yarn!


My official start July 3, 2008

I’ve officially begun working on my first project for the summer KAL/CAL!  All I’m going to say is that it’s bright yellow and a fun pattern!  It looks like it’ll be a quick knit which makes me happy!


And the inspiration just keeps on flowin’ July 2, 2008

I’ve been anxiously anticipating the arrival of my book from KnitPicks.  Finally it came today and I have just been concocting patterns in my head from the stitches in this book!!!  I only wish there was an actual yarn store in town here so I could bring my ideas into fruitation.  Unfortunately there’s only a Wal-Mart, so I feel many trial runs coming into being soon.

Which book is it that I got?  “Knit & Purl, 250 stitches to knit” from Interweave Pres/The Harmony Guides.  The pictures are fabulous and I’m in love with every single stitch!

This is good for me because I haven’t even begun any work on a project for the Summer KAL/CAL and now that I know it runs ’til September, I have no fear of letting (some of) my projects go uncast on ’til I can get to Boucle’ Yarns in Fargo.  But the one I just thought up of, I may have to run back to Wal-Mart and pick up a few things because the idea is just too good to pass up.  *sigh*

Good thing the hubby’s staying home tonight because then my girlfriend and I can spend a few hours in peacefulness knitting/crocheting!
