My intention this past weekend was to finish up three dishcloths that I had OTN....that didn't happen. I could not knit a dishcloth to save my life. I have one still OTN and with the correct number of stitches. One was frogged and the other is OTN but with extra stitches that came from I have no idea where. I thought...at this point...it's time for a change of pace.
This is a 14 year old boy's idea of what you do with knitting needles with the lights on the tips. Aunt Kathy sent me these in the Hot Cocoa Swap. I love these needles and I promise AK....they are unharmed...I rescued them. I have to admit though...it was pretty cool.
I have been considering knitting the Everlasting Bagstopper for about 5 months now but just never got around to it. Froggie gave me this awesome yarn...Sugar & Cream kit with 3 large skeins...so I thought why not. It's almost time to start going to my sister's to swim in her pool and this would be perfect for a "pool bag" to carry wet things home or whatever other stuff we need to lug around. It knits up really fast....mindless after you get the bottom done...perfect pattern for me! I'm planning to make one for everybody so we can be a little more organized for a change and maybe the kids won't leave their clothes behind. That happened quite a few times last year. lol
I bought this yarn to make myself a scarf. Froggie and I were doing our own little KAL. She got the same yarn just in a different colorway. I tried 3 different patterns with it this past weekend with no luck. (There's that number 3 again. :P ) I finally settled on the One Row Handspum Scarf by the Yarn Harlot. I love it so far! I love that it's the same pattern on every single row! I can knit and watch TV or talk...perfection! I cast on 30 stitches instead of the 26 she did but I think the 26 stitches would have looked just as nice. I'm using a US Size 7 needle so I was afraid it was going to turn out a little small. Come on, Froggie!! You gotta catch up!! *You should have plenty of time because I can't seem to put this Everlasting Bagstopper down. *
Back to the bag....maybe I'll have an FO tomorrow.
