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!


Daisy Stitch June 8, 2008

Last night I worked on different stitches to spice up life.  Well, I saw the daisy stitch here and really really wanted to knit together a hairband from it.  Didn’t really work.  I’m not sure what was going on, but none of my daisy stitches looked like daisies.  They looked like…well, blobs of knots.  But I’m determined to learn new stitches and make the most out of them.  In between my current projects of course.  😀

It confounds me because I’m following the directions and the entire things eludes me.  Well, if at first you don’t succeed, try try again.
