I wish I could!! :oD
Hey – I guess nothing could be wrong with that! Right? Right?!?
Well guess who got a nice treat in the mail earlier this week by ME of course! :op
Some delicious Hill Country – Sweet Feet Sock Yarn http://www.hillcountryyarns.com/
I also got 2 more goody items by ME!
To finish up Ms. Marigold I needed to get a US3 circular needle with a 32” cable. Debated about the Addi Naturas (and will still get some!) but saw these at a LYS in a county over from me and since I was in the area decided to go ahead and get them:
I have seen these needles before but never knitted with them and since they had the US3 in a 40” I just went for it. These needles are wooden and available in the Rosewood and Ebony (I got the Rosewood). Apparently, these needles are crafted in Germany of the remnants from the manufacture of the highest quality musical instruments.
I do have another pair of Rosewood circulars that my Noni bag has been sitting on over a year! They are a size 11 or 13 (can’t remember) and seemed a bit sticky…but I went for these b/c by touch they seemed smoother, so we will see how it goes.
Oops! I almost forgot that I also got my very 1st Rebecca magazine!
It is very hard to come by these mags at a LYS. If you order them online there are like $20 bucks! Whew!
I got an older version (#23) dirt cheap!! I was ecstatic and happened to look at the mag ad realized the entire issue is in Dutch!! HA! Thankfully, there is an English insert for us Americans that barely try to learn another language! :op
There were some great looks in this one so that is why I picked this issue over the other older ones.
Now, there is nothing like knitting in public!
I did clock a little bit of time on Ms. Marigold while I got my french pedi. Boy did that feel nice! (@ doing both – gettin' the hooves chopped down & being able to knit at the same time! LOL). Everyone kept looking at me (all 3 people in the spa) which were mainly the workers and one customer. But no one asked or inquired about the deep purple yarn slowly growing from 2 needles! :o)
So ironically I discovered on the same day that on Saturday, June 9th is a Worldwide Knit In Public Day. Who would have thought! Ha! Here is the website link speaking about it: http://wwkipday.com/
Last night I went and practiced some of my crocheting with a crochet group. Still slow, but at least I am improving on my chain and SC! :o) I will get my mojo soon!
While I was at Hobby Lobby I made a return on these other cheap US3 needles I did not want anymore (it truly is hard to revert back) and got these items for exchange:
YEP! Got my continuous round jump rings…in this case they call them toggle clasp set by 'The Jewelry Shop'. Aren’t the hearts just CUTE!
So I am now a HAPPY knitter! :o) Thanks again to everyone who commented on how my knitting world could be a better place with the stitch markers!
Have a FABULOUS weekend!
