It seems all I've done in the last couple of weeks is start new projects:
First off it was Estes Park wool festival this last weekend. I came away with some lovely Plain & Fancy yarn in what I'm calling mermaid colours.
There's some yarns that just beg to be knit into something immediately... and this is one. I'm following Terrie's lead and making an hourglass sweater. Ooh and I also came away with this very cool cable needle ring. No more cable needle hanging out the side of my mouth.
The weekend was fabulous and you can see a great account of it, with pics, on Stacey's blog. A fun time was had by all. Thanks Stacey for organizing this fun trip.
Next up are some baby goodies. A couple of friends back home are going to be having babies in August. They've decided not to find out whether they'll be little boys or girls and so instead of opting for white, I've decided to go multicolour.
I'd checked into nursery colours and one of the rooms looked to have a very similar colour scheme as this corntastic blanket. So I've got that on the needles right now. I'll be changing the basic pattern up a little, and adding some matching accessories. More to come soon on this one.
Then there's a Phyllo yoke sweater in the lovely Rowan calmer. I've only got a couple of inches in on this one, but I'm so excited about how it's going to turn out. A nice fall sweater methinks.
It's just dawned on me that these are all mindless stocking stitch projects for the most part. Maybe there'll be another new project on the horizon for which I'll be able to put my new nifty cable needle to good use.
