Enter this week's installment to the world of WIP.
Last week I repeatedly started the Echo Mobius with my purple handspun. I now know what the problem was, but the crafting ADD bug kicked in and the only way this classifies as being on needles is well, the needles ARE stuck in it...
My sister has a friend that is expecting a baby sometime next Spring. Carrie asked me to knit some baby things and we discussed doing a week's worth of different baby booties. There is a pattern in here that is soooo cute. The color is off in this picture as the yarn (Cascade Fixation) is really cream, brown, green, and blues. I whipped up this one Tuesday at Knitting Group and then realized that I had totally messed up the pattern as written and did something completely different. So, they are no longer Hannah's Special Slippers, but are now Dina's Screwed-Up Baby Shoe. I did write down what I did, so with a little luck the second one will turn out the same.
Over the course of the past year, I have participated in a knitting meme sponsored by Tami. It is so much fun to see what people all over the world are working on and to realize that sometimes you are making the same thing as someone far, far away, but it connects you to them. As the meme recently celebrated it's first anniversary, Tami graciously held a give away. I was one of the winners and got to pick out a skein of fingering weight yarn from her hand dyed yarns that she sells online as Candy Skein. The colorway I chose is Blackberry from the Yummy Series. Thank you Tami, not only for your generosity, but also for hosting this fun weekly event.
