I'm finishing my fourth bootie- they are so easy to do and it's such a little thrill when I finish them instead of just plugging away on my shawl with no end in sight. I like the shawl, too but right now, I'm going to put it aside. I'm thrilled that that little oddball scrap of yarn ended up being 2 sets of booties and they will have a purpose other than taking up space in my stash.
This morning, I was walking out the door to run some errands when I saw that my Project Spectrum yarn arrived! It definitely is vibrant and soft- it should make for some cute booties and hats. I purchased it from etsy.com
I also signed up for the One Skein Secret Pal- I'm very much looking forward to it.
I started a new book the other day: Knitting Rules! : The Yarn Harlot's Bag of Knitting Tricks by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee. Still as funny as ever but this one has some practical information I can't wait to try out. A very good read- I'll be a little sad when I finish the last page.
