My final day at my office job is fast approaching and I can't seem to sit still. It's all a bit surreal. Thank you to everyone that has helped me clear out a large portion of my stash. I can't thank you enough! In a time of uncertainty, adventure, and big dreams, you've made it a bit easier for me, not too mention, helped clean out a bit of my home. I've filtered through the remaining yarns and picked out a few to keep, and I've made sure my Ravelry Stash Trade/Sell Page is fully upto date. Here's my final push to get these wonderful skeins out the door and into your happy knitting hands... if you purchase 5+ skeins of yarn, I will not only give you FREE shipping in the US, but I'll take 25% off the asking price!
All I have to share picture wise with you this week is my finished, blocked, around my neck Sonetto Shawl. Please disregard the green taped walls that still need painting!
- I've decided to keep the skein of Woolie Silk. My sister in Prague is going to have her second baby girl this winter and I think this pretty pink will make a beautiful little sweater. It's soft and the color is one of my sister's favorite. I'm thinking of these three options: #1, #2, or #3. All the options are FREE, which a nice added bonus. Help me decide!
- This is a knit that I tagged last week. Loving the dropped shoulder thang!
- It could be the gray scale of this shawl pattern that I'm loving, but nice none the less.
- Kirsten rocks!
- The yarn store I will be working at soon has asked for us to pick out a quick, one-skein holiday pattern to knit for a store sample. I've picked this one. Surprised?!
- A big goal this upcoming year is to learn to crochet more proficiently. If only to make this blanket.
- I'm pretty sure I'd look awesome in this.
- The yarn store also asked for my favorite helpful knitting websites. These are the ones I came up with: KnittingHelp.com, Knitty.com, YouTube, and my all time favorite, TechKnitting.com. Any others that you can think of or that have helped you along the way?
Have a great weekend!
