Twisted Knitter

This sucks.

Today really should be Sunday! *groan*

This is such a tease!

How can we have a holiday in the middle of the week!

Yesterday should have been Saturday and today should be my Sunday!
Don't get me wrong I am happy about the extra freebie day. :o)

So yesterday during my mid-week Saturday I flipped thru my "just took of my wish list" book.

Weekend Knitting has been on the market for a little while, but I finally picked it up.

See all those yellow tags - just some of the things I have been eyeing :o) Here is a quick peek

Okay so I lied! I have a LR teaser and just couldn't resist. This is what all 4 panels looks like on Lizard Ridge. As you can see I had to change carpet locations to get it all spread out! Right in the middle of my living room floor LOL

The "egg carton" bumps are naturally falling out of LR while I have the panels stretched out side by side so I can minimize some of the notorious stockinette "curl". Blocking will not even be a finishing process other then to let it lay out after I give it a nice bathe.

So glad that I will be doing the 5 panels. I put my other favorite "snuggle up while cold" blanket on top to compare the size and it appears that LR will be longer but just about the same width once the border is on the afghan. I am very pleased to see that! The snuggle blanket is considered full size.
My place looks like a knitting factory. There are balls of yarn everywhere, laid out "almost done" knitted items that just need to be seamed, and ancient U.F.Os that have almost been forgotten sitting on needles in many places.

Remember this:

Well it now looks like this:
A couple of weeks ago I finally broke down and bought this cute wicker bin to store all of my yarn and other knitterly things! :op Basically a cute way to hide my mess!

Thank goodness my stash has not grown out of control that I would not be able to contain it all in this cutesy small box, and that is the way I want to keep it!

Alright you all have a nice Sunday! I mean...Thursday :op
