OK, that's a dumb title. I can't think too clearly today. Blame it on all the recent snow.
Shimmer is on it's way from Knit Picks
. I'm anticipating arrival late next week. So the Bird's Nest Shawl is soon to be underway.
Still no word on the rest of the 128 Chunky Tweed from Hello Knitty
. I just sent off an e-mail asking about it. I really hope I won't end up having to pull the pieces all apart. Maybe a little capelet or small poncho could be made out of it if necessary.
I also sent an e-mail to Yarnware
about the Brown Sheep Fingering. I don't know how long it will take to get the color I ordered in so I asked about the possibility of converting the order to a different color. Can't hurt to ask, right?
I got my package out to my Secret Pal today. I hope she likes what I sent her.
No work today so I think I'll try to get some progress on the Slouch Socks. They've been languishing in the basket for too long. I'm ashamed each time I pass them by for something else.
Speaking of things that aren't going to be knitted, I just picked up Last Minute Knitted Gifts
(after reading about it in Wendy's
blog. I want to do that camisole!) and saw the Hourglass Sweater. I have roughly 1800 yards of Galway Colornep that were going to be my Weasley Sweater. I think I can get gauge with it and maybe make that sweater. It looks very comfortable. Maybe after I'll swatch after playing with my socks for a bit.
I also went on a Disney animated classics spree. Picked up Bambi, Sleeping Beauty and Beauty and the Beast. I find it easier to knit with a movie if I'm already familiar with it. Then I don't have to give all my attention to the screen. And speaking of familiar things, just have to go back to my pre-teen fan days for a moment. CMT has begun showing The Dukes of Hazzard at night. Yes, it's a silly show but the scenery was nice. And I don't mean the trees and fields!
I also just got some supplies from Fire Mountain
to make some stitch markers. I just love that place. So many pretty things.
Looks like I've got lots to occupy my time today. Better get to some of it!Edit:
Just heard back from both Hello Knitty and Yarnware. One skein of the Tweed is in. The other should be here next week. Seems to be quite a bit of hot pink tweed in demand at the moment! :D And the Brown Sheep will be in next week, also. Since I know the Shimmer is on its way and I have some other yarn to keep me busy I think I'll wait for my original color choice.
