I’m getting really good at that: procrastiknitting. Because I know I should work on one project, I find myself inevitably drawn to another. Hence the golf club covers, alpaca scarflette, arm warmers, and pompom hat. Oh, and the new projects: a scarf and a cowl!
For the record, these were purchased before the “Buy less yarn” goal last week. These are what inspired that goal, which I failed at miserably that very weekend. *Deep breath* My name is Ana, and it has been 4 days since I last bought yarn. Thank you.
Remember number 4 on Friday’s list?
4. Try not to buy anymore yarn.
Last night I decided a good small project between Chadwick and the shawl would be to knit up a swatch with the Sugar ‘n Cream Scrubby yarn. I’ve been kind of envisioning a cotton and scrubby washcloth that could be given as part of a baby present, so I figured now was as good a time as any to try this stuff out. I’ll note, real quickly before I start writing too much, that I am in no way affiliated with the Bernat brand. I bought the yarn for $3.99 (and tax) at Michaels.
During a recent trip to Michaels to pick up magnetic paper and neon-colored paints, I came across this interesting yarn. It’s called Sugar n Cream Scrubby. It has these soft ridges along the edges but is still pretty soft. Has anyone used this before?
This weekend was so much fun. My husband and I made the hour and a half/two hour drive up to Grapevine for the DFW Fiber Fest. I’ve never been to one of these things, so I had no idea what I was in for.
My husband and I popped down to Yarnivore Urban Thread at the Spice Village in Waco this weekend. I went in there with one thing, and only one thing, on my mind. I was running low on Malabrigo worsted merino in Pollen, and I needed to know if they had any more. Luckily for us, they had just one more hank of the colour I needed for my shawl project. But then there was something else.
My projects finally seem to be moving forward, despite a few hiccups along the way this week. The big project is going a bit slower. The sweater is nearing 7 inches long, which is about the halfway point of the body. However, finding the time and motivation to sit down to simple stockinette is proving more challenging than I anticipated.
