What is it?
The Infinity (Cardi-Wrap with Sleeves) This thing is g.o.r.g.e.o.u.s. to the max! Thought about using a variegated yarn, but remembered some steel gray bulky yarn that has been sitting in my stash patiently waiting to tell me what it wanted to be. Walked by the cabinet it was in and heard it yelling..."pick me pick me!" It is some smart yarn, lemme tell you.
So, last Tuesday night, I cast on with Saphira.
It is a 100% Superwash Merino Wool in Colorway 564. Can you say soft and squishy? Surprisingly enough, the pattern is going quickly. Amazing what bulky yarn and 10 1/2 needles will produce. The back is done, blocked, and seamed. Yesterday, I picked up the stitches for the right front and made good progress during my knitting group.
In other WIP's, I have been working diligently on a soon to be opened Etsy shop. My plan is to start with a few of my soaps, add some knitted items, some knitting accessories, some sewn items, and some spun goods. We'll see how it progresses. For now, the soap inventory is growing, the business registration with the state has been completed and the all important tax ID number secured. Stay tuned for more information on this latest journey of mine.
There is always a stack of books on my bedside table. Once I finally decide to actually go to bed, I do enjoy reading a few pages of whichever book in progress interests me at the moment. Lately, Time is a River by Mary Alice Monroe has captured my attention.
And now, a riddle/joke for you to figure out (supplied by one of my silly boys)...
