knitting and the life I almost have around it

what a Fair day!

Who could forget that Craft and Quilt Fair was on this weekend? Hooray!
The opportunity to purchase yarns and beads from places other than Lincraft, and in varieties that in no way resemble the F Word ( am i the only person who thinks colour 9 looks like baby-vomit?)
In the end, i had in my bag -
  • A pair of bamboo circular needles in ( size 7mm )
  • 3 balls of slubby hand-dyed 100% wool (about 70 metres each ball) in a pinky, purple, green dye pattern.
  • 1 ball of Crystal Palace Kid Merino in Plum, which must be out of manufacture because it's not shwon here. ($15 a ball, but lusted after it for so long i could not resist. no idea what to do with it though)
  • a bulk bag of beads for use in Cambio. The beads are dark blue with a silver core, so i might make the cardigan in black instead of pink.
  • also an assortment of malachite, amethyst, shell, enamel and glass beads which may one day wake up as earrings
  • the current issue of Creative Knitting magazine, which i may subscribe to.

If you can figure out how much i spent, please don't tell the BFG.

Here are a few pics so you don't get bored. Strapless top i made last week. New Look 6468 (can't find on-line, sorry)

the fabric is some my granma gave me when i was little. so cute! a little sheer, but i can live with that if BFG can.

Where's the spring already?

Til we Knit again.....
