I don't know what happened, I must have fell off of the wagon. I was just going downtown to the Fiber Universe to see if they had a nice yarn for a quick scarf. All of a sudden, I was seeing things that I had to have.
I have seen this book on a blog and video cast here and there. I know that I can search just about any cast on or bind off that I may ever need on the internet, but sometimes I just like the feel of a book.
It has the twisted german cast on in it so I figured what the heck.
This is what I really went down for. Some yarn for a scarf that is soft and squishy and a good color. This is for someone I work with. She knows I am a Snoopy fanatic and every time she sees something snoopy related on sale, she buys it for me. I felt like I needed to do something special for her.
Now, I realize, or at least I hope that Spring is coming soon (you wouldn't know it by the forecast for later this week), but I figure if I hurry I could get this done before the snow gets here on Thursday.
I am knitting the Yarn Harlot's one row scarf pattern. The combo of the yarn and the stitch pattern is making this one soft scarf.
While downtown, I thought I might find an alternative yarn for the Single Handed Knits Mystery KAL that I am doing. So between Erin and I, we decided on this Ultra Pima. Only problem is, Mel doesn't suggest cotton for this sweater, something I failed to remember until I was home with it.
But, I am okay with that! I already have plans for this one. I think it will be lovely for my Wisdom cardigan.
But, I absolutely cannot cast on for it until I get a few things done...like Mona Lisa's Ensemble.
