My new toys have arrived!
Last week, someone asked how I organize my yarn and needles. I have to admit, it’s more like slightly organized chaos around here. Everything has a place, but everything is rarely in its place.
The little guys are nearly done! I’m so excited! Above the image is the little dress for the mermaid.
I was listening to the Knit Picks Podcast on my way home from work yesterday and an interesting topic came up. Kelley and Kerin were discussing tips for reading patterns (I’m playing catch-up as I’m way behind). As I listened, my mind kept wandering off and comparing how I read patterns to what their suggestions were, which I found fascinating.
Remember number 4 on Friday’s list?
4. Try not to buy anymore yarn.
I’m so excited about this! After a really long, quiet day at work, I was absolutely exhausted. When I got home, though, I saw a friendly little Knit Picks box on my doorstep. My new knitting toys had arrived!
After a really hectic last half of the week (hence the real slow-down on posts), I had the most relaxing weekend I’ve had in ages. With the rain falling steadily through Saturday and a little bit Sunday, it was so nice to just stay in and do nothing.
To go along with yesterday’s post about baby booties, my newest obsession, I wanted to share a tutorial I found on the Knit Pick’s website. Need a last minute baby shower present? This video will guide you through the steps to make little booty slippers for that new precious one. (They look so cozy!)
