Yup, one year ago today I started blogging. Congratulations Abi! Though I'm loving reading the other "on this day today" comments. Since Abi lives so close to me, I'll have another contest. Find me the best "on this day today" event, and you'll get a prize like Abi! And no, Abi, you can't win again. :)
A few weeks ago, I told you about some sweater stashing that had been done. See, a few weeks ago I had been a bit down in the dumps with all this divorce crap. So, finding yarn on sale became a bit of a hobby for me. :)
There's a few sweaters in blogland that I'm just DYING to make. First is the Lucy in the Sky Cardigan by Laura at Cosmicpluto.
First, I purchased this yarn at Elann:
But it's a bit fuzzy in real life, and I wouldn't want to obscure the diamond detail on the sweater with the fuzziness. So, in the stash it goes! I couldn't get a shot of how gorgeous the purple is. Me likey!
I also had purchased this:
I've been wanting to knit Rogue for a long time. So I thought that this Jaeger yarn would be gorgeous in all those cables. But then I remembered about this yarn:
Chilling in the stash all unused. So, the Mission Falls will become Rogue, and the Jaeger will become Lucy!
It is taking every bone in my body not to cast on!!!!!! I've finished a sleeve for my Mom's sweater, and am about to take on one of the fronts of Ivy. I cannot start another sweater until I finish one of those.
