I found an extremely cute pattern on another blog a few weeks back and my heart skipped a beat. Caffeine Girl posted her new project Quicksilver. Thankfully, I had most of the yarn necessary in my stash. I decided to try Madeline Tosh Light and Malbrigo yarns together. (Yes, my truck repairs are paid off thank goodness, I was a good girl). At The Knitting Tree, the sales person told me the base yarn is the exact same therefore only the colors vary. I went with the colors white, gray and a blue. (Sorry I left the tags in my truck and I do not know the exact colors!)
I love how the project is coming along. However, I have to be good. My friend is only 5 weeks away from her due date and I need to finish the baby blanket! Hopefully, this Friday you will see a blog post of a finished baby blanket!
My husband and I rarely exchange gifts. We are on a budget like most and just find our time together is more valuable then items. He knows how much I adore Sherlock the tv series and knitting and therefore decided I could not live without this special skein of Into the Whirl sock yarn, 221B colorway. I am so excited to cast on. This yarn is so soft and simply elegant. I am trying to find the perfect sock pattern for skein so I can wear socks and watch Sherlock!! I am thrilled just thinking about it!
I started a new novel this week, Parched. It is a SciFi book about mystical creatures and vampires. I am not sure why but I love vampire love stories. Yes, my reading habits are similar to a 13 year old girl but its fun and I find it so relaxing so please don't judge me too harshly.Ginny!
