there was yarn....
and then some knitting....
and hopefully some progress ;op
This weekend, after not knitting all week long, I started on some baby booties for a co-worker and his wife (prediction: more baby knits to come)
Let me just say right here how I LUV my harmony needles. This is my first time knitting with them since I purchased the beauties last month (minus the cable needles, which does not count as knitting). And I definitely will be getting in the long 'backorder line' to get my full set!
During the Charlotte Purls knit group (we have a blog now!) I finally got motivated enough (read: after avoiding them for about a month) to sit down and focus long enough to cast-on for the Fetching fingerless mittens. Yes, you see some more red! This is so my last project in this color for a little while. These mitts are now coined "Brickhouse":As you can see I am sticking to my theme of fast knits, as an avoidance tactic on conquering a few of my bigger projects that have been waiting in the wings for awhile now.
Meanwhile, as I was getting over Lizzie being in the naughty non-ribbon corner, an unexpected blogger 2 Sistah's Knit Together bestowed upon me this fab badge!
Now that is the real knitty gritty version of it! ;op
It was totally unexpected and from a reader I did not know about and is fond of my blog!
It is always a delight when I get comments or messages, but especially from those I have no idea read my blog! I just luv it! They are like little e-presents!
