Rainy Greys

Apparently my life is getting a jump start on Project Spectrum. Today is horribly ugly outside, yucky and rainy. I hate it. Instead of knitting I spent my morning reading, then got on here when I should have been taking advantage of nap time to get some rest.

So, here are some things to make me you feel better. I bought some cute flexible needles for socks online. They're probably similar to Bryspun needles, which I love. I have some Bryspuns in size 2.5 US, but I don't think they make them any smaller. Besides, these come in purple. :) I considered buying them in blue, for Project Spectrum, but let's be realistic, I love purple. Brittany is going to replace the broken needle, already got a confirmation, which is good because I like the wooden DPNs. Still, I think I need something else because I know my size 1s get a LOT of usage. So, it won't hurt to have a backup.

Then I hopped out to the mailbox to (hopefully) get my KP yarn. Which I ordered awhile ago. Let me say that usually they are extremely prompt. I'm Blue Flash2assuming they have an influx of holiday orders to clear out and my stuff will get here soon enough. It was supposed to be in Charlotte on Friday, which means...yes soon. Anyways, what I did find was my Blue Flash yarn from Cherry Blossom Fibers. Some woman I got the Nermal yarn from. She has some gorgeous stuff there. I know, you've heard this rant/rave before. It's true. Check her out when you have some free money time. This yarn is perfect Project Spectrum yarn, and I'll be using it to make the I Dreamed of Africa pattern that Suzanne was meant for.

I forgot to mention that, after argument with DH, I felt the urge to rip somethingRewind Coyote apart! So, I frogged my Cleaves. Hey, I was going to anyway, they just weren't fitting right. Not that I've given up on the Cleaves thing entirely. I think I should just use a different yarn and maybe not so many stitches on the cowl. Good thing I noted the gauge before ripping though, it's a PERFECT fit for the Hug Shrug pattern. Been thinking about starting up on that this week. Although, I'll probably have to wind my balls by hand. :( Which means at least an hour sitting in bed alone...wait, I was going to do that anyway. lol I love socks but they can't be the only thing I've got going. Sometimes I need a mindless project.

Hm, I'm outta stuff to talk about. I think I'll go knit.

Kitty's Story

Vintage 008

First, I must confess my name isn't Kitty, or anything even close. It just comes from an affinity for cats. Second, I love to craft, create, and imagine. I can draw a bit, knit a lot, and sew just enough to get by. My world revolves around the loves of my life; my three children. Anything more you want to know about me is on Ravelry or check me out on FB!
