So, I figured out another loophole that I forgot to add. If I'm knitting something and I need yarn to finish the project, I can buy it.
That's what the Elann Peruvian Highland Wool is for. I'm going to double strand it with some bulky yarn I've had for a while and knit a very chunky sweater. Than one of two things will happen, I will love it and you guys get to see the results, or I will hate it and reknit it into a blanket for my cat. Exciting isn't it :-)
The other yarn is Filati Italian Collection Tebe Extrafine Merino and that's for Kaelen. Very nice and soft. She's started a Debbie Bliss pullover for her baby brother. She was planning on just acrylic, but I intervened. Couldn't help myself, and now I'm teaching my daughter to be a yarn snob, too.
More Eucalan cause my old bottle has almost run out and the latest Knitscene cause I'm a magazine junkie.
I ripped Kaelen's cabled cardi. I feel pretty guilty about it. What kind of mother rips her own childs sweater out. But I just couldn't stand to knit it and when I thought about it I felt depressed. I needed to figure out the math for the sleeves and I reknit them twice and I held it up to Kaelen, sighed, and decided I would buy her a cardigan, then I went down and helped redecorate her room. My guilt eased up a tiny bit after that, but I will have to do more for her before it is completely erased.
I did see this hoodie that Charity from Knitting In the North is making for her daughter. Maybe I will try again, but not anytime soon. I just don't want to knit for anyone for a while, not even my first born. Bad mom! Just selfish knitting for me, thank you very much.
I've been cleaning and cleaning and cleaning my house. We've been living in maintenance mode since Simon was born and it was definitely time to do more than maintain. So I've been decluttering and deep cleaning and I'm starting to like my house again, plus I know where stuff is, and the kids toys are no longer taking over.
My mind just went blank, so that's all for today folks, but I'm planning to be a regular poster this week, so see you tomorrow.
