I have just been reading about the new knitting site Twist Collective. I dont know how I didnt know anything about it but I absolutely love it. I have already purchased 3 patterns, Victoria, Bonnie and Jali but will have to wait to print them as I need to purchase a new cartridge for the printer. Well they are saved away on my files so I can print them at a later date. The site has some other really beautiful patterns and I am thinking of purchasing one or two of the sock patterns to knit up. I will have to pop on over this afternoon and read all the articles too. How wonderful and exciting for the knitting community.
Onto other knitting, I have almost finished knitting Isabelle's vest out of the zoomy yarn. I didnt do any of it yesterday as Lachlan was home with a sore throat so we sat and watched the Spiderwick Chronicles. I loved it, how great a movie. I think Thimbletack was my favourite character, and I could really relate to how he changed his image when he got angry. Pity the honey wouldnt work on me in a temper tantrum. Hee hee!
Tomorrow is the meetup for the crochet girls too so I have put together a few of my books, not that I have used them yet. I did try and crochet a little bit yesterday but it got all ripped out. I have so much trouble trying to understand how to increase and then do the correct stitches. Tomorrow hopefully I will come back a little better learned about this craft and be able to create something worth looking at and using.
Thanks for all the knitty love about the duffle coat too. I think it is one of my favourites, but most of the items I knit out of the cupcake yarn are my faves as I love the feel of it and the colors are so vibrant and different too.
Well I am off to do some boring housework and my catalogue deliveries before it rains (doesnt look like it will) but we did get some much needed rain this week and a thunderstorm yesterday just as I had to pick Isabelle up. The weather here changes so fast so I better go prepared. Hope to see you Monday with some nice pics of the girls I get to meet tomorrow.
Have a great weekend.
