~Fun, Foils and Stash Enhancement~
Well, I'm back and the weekend wasn't much better than my "week of Mondays", not to mention the fact that it is WICKED COLD!!!!!!! ;) Despite that, the girls and I had a really fun day today.
My two younger girls had their hair foiled for the first time ~here they are in all of their foiled beauty! lol
and here they are in their finished glory (I've smudged their stylist's face as I didn't tell her she'd be "blogged")(click), we went shopping at a local discount store that had YARN ON SALE - here is a picture of a sampling of the un-needed stash enhancement ;) (although the AMOUNT of yarn purchased will remain undisclosed ~ seeing it in print might just scare me half to death!) it was gorgeous yarn - Kroy sock yarn (can NEVER have enough sock yarn) - Bernat, Lily, Patons and lots of large cones which would be great for the knitting machine (different mixes such as cotton/rayon, boucle/acrylic, and mohair/acrylic) - although I haven't had the time to even attempt to figure out my machine. I was given a circa 1950's/1960's Knit King Machine - it's gorgeous - made of steel, no plastic ~ one of these days I'll find the time to play with it)
and last but not least, the much loved Stephanie... aka Harlot is having an Olympic Knit-a-long ! Check it out, it sounds like a blast. I've decided to join along for the fun of it (because I have NOTHING else going on and I need to see how much I can push that ONE LAST NERVE I have left ;) shhhhhhh leave me to my delusions).
Now, just so you don't start to think that all I do is buy yarn and not knit it, here is a picture of my cast on "Artists Gloves", that are being knit in the Llama Seta that was meant to be part of "the evil socks". . This pattern just flies, and barring any unforseen "Mondays", I just might have a FO before too long! YAY!!!
I hope you all had a great weekend, and for those of you that expressed an interest, I'll post the recipe for the Chili Soup as soon as I can.
