Well, when buying the yarn for the kimono, the LYS owner and myself calculated yardage and determined that 2 balls was more than enough. Sure.......
So, Friday night, I was about 2-3 inches from being done and guess what. Ding, Ding!!! We have a winner! Yes, I ran out of yarn. So, I apologized profusely to Katie (mom-to-be) and promised it as soon as the other ball of yarn came in. So, now I'm just waiting for the new yarn. But, the bib (remember it?)
had it's button replaced with a baseball button and was a total hit at the shower. You would have thought that I'd picked and woven the cotton for the thing myself!
I've been evaluating what projects to work on. I've decided that my next project is going to be a golf club cover thing. I have been waiting on the yarn to come in and then I'm going to hand dye it because I couldn't find the color I wanted for it.
After that, I think my Hurricane Sock Pal sock will be worked on. I can't wait to show you guys the yarn, but I don't want to spoil the surprise in case my spoilee has figured me out. It's some yarn from Scout, and it's gorgeous!
Then, I have a shawl that I started (for my knitting group on Thursday nights!), and I have finished my dad's sock #1 and will have to come up with a mate by September.
Things have been crazy lately, so not much knitting has been accomplished. Work has been at a maximum of crazy and some babysitter issues have also left me drained!
I have a trip coming up in two weeks for training and will hopefully get to meet Christy, and then before you know it the qualifying for the election I will be throwing my hat into will be starting. The election takes place in October, but the qualifying and fee payment is in August.
So, hopefully I'll have a finished kimono pic for y'all next week and maybe a golf club cover thing as well!
