Now, what I did for ME today.
I swatched my new yarn. This swatch is doubling as two swatches in one as the solid pink I bought to go with this is the same yarn so there was no need to do two swatches. I am loving this yarn. I use Cheryl Oberle's 30 stitch swatch method and border it with garter to be able to measure just what is in the body of the stitches.
I bought some stuff for me and a couple of things for some knitting buddies of mine from this totally cool website Fringe Supply Co. I can't wait to get them and I'll blog about it all when I have the goodies in my hot little hands.
I founds some cool new things to investigate from another nifty website I love looking at, Tolt. Today's Tolt Blog was so neat to look at Tolt Guest Blog March is Icelandic month on their website and I love the unspun icelandic yarns. They are not everyone's cup of tea, but I like them for nice outside sweaters and shawls that you want to be warm in. A nice Unspun Icelandic sweater would have been great for this past weekend's knitting trip or whenever I need to be in and out of the car. There may still be time to whip one up for this early Spring/Spring season.
My t.v. knitting this week is a blanket for the Hospice Home. The yarn came from Yarn Over two years ago. The pattern is the Big Bad Baby Blanket that I am adapting to a lap blanket. The yarn is a worsted Claudia Handpaint that is so super soft. It just is a dream to knit with.
It's back to work tomorrow, but I am ready. Another day home and I would be breaking into the Girl Scout Cookies that are supposed to go to Iowa later this week with us!
