In other design news the LYS that I was doing a design for decided to go in another direction :(
However they are still paying me for the time I invested so I am waiting for my in store GC to show up at my house. Karen and I went last night so I could molest some yarn and put a shopping list together. I had a big list of xmas gift yarn to buy but after calculating the total today I think I am going to be selfish and just buy a bunch of yarn for mememmemmeeeee!
I am going to make a Norwegian sweater for myself. I have this one in mind. I was also going to peruse the patterns that are there and see if there are any others that catch my eye. I have been very picky when it comes to patterns lately.
There was also a whole rack of beautiful sock yarn so I think I will stock up on that too. I think after xmas knitting it will be a year of socks for me. I am so tired of white athletic socks! I want to have beautiful hand knit socks for every day.
And then accessories! I was thinking a needle felting kit. Some 16 inch INOX turbo needles for sock knitting, a stich counter, and whatever else floats my boat.
