just my little knitting blog



So I'm done with my Le Slouche from knit and tonic. I love her stuff.. I'm thinking maybe a 'fad classic' and 'somewhat cowl' in the near future. I used 2 balls of Schachenmayr Nomotta 'Aurora'.. randomly found at big lots in a huge bin the other day. I have 6 balls of a light key lime-y green color too. The yarn is really nice.. it's a cotton tape that knits up to about 18sts/4" on sz 6 (i think) needles. I haven't worn it yet, though. I asked the Ninja what he thought about it and he says it would be ok to wear.. with the right outfit. Whatever I dig it.

Anyways, it's St. Patty's Day.. unfortunately most of my friends are working until at least midnight. I think the Ninj and I might head up to m'couls for cocktails but it always gets so crazy downtown... we will see. Lately I've been drawn away from going out.. maybe because i always end up spending way too much money. Chris Daughtry's coming next week.. I think I may just set up some burgers and beer and sit out back to listen to the show.

So my next big project is Glampyre's minisweater. So far it's coming along really well. I'm using Lion Brand Wool-Ease (I know, I know) but I have at least 10 skeins of it from an old sweater I was working on that just didn't work out. I'm pretty excited about how it's turning out. I only have a few more increase rounds and then it's all downhill from there! This is my first big project so I'm stoked. I made some changes after seeing rebeldaisy's: no poofed sleeves, kept 'em short but I'm making it t-shirt length. I'll get some pictures up as soon as I try it on. Happy St. Patty's!! Have a good one!!
