Hell and Damnation !!!!!

I was going great guns on Tribe and the second sleeve was well on its way when!!!!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This morning while everyone else was asleep I, with a cup of tea worked on to finish the sleeve before anyone else got up.

I was almost at the decreases and was thinking if I really got cracking I could wear it tomorrow.  When I ran out of wool!!!!!

What I hear you say – YOU RAN OUT OF WOOL!!!! 

How could this happen ARGHH !!!!!!

I had bought exactly what the pattern had said: 5 balls Shale, 2 balls Mountain, 2 balls Bilberry, 2 balls Quarry Tile, 2 balls Mink, 2 Scree and 1 Alpine.

At this point I need Alpine for 3 rows and I’ll never use the colour again!!!!

And I have 1 Mink, 1 Mountain , 1 Scree and 2 Shale left over ARGHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yarn Overload

You are probably asking about Sisters of the Wool, the shop I found in Westport following the disaster in Tiverton! So I will bring you up to date.

Daughter no 1 and I took the grandson to the park along with hubby and after we entered an aladdin’s cave of yarn!!! There was so much to look at it was like being in a sweet shop!

This was how I came out

I know you say not much! But I couldn’t resist them, no projects in mind but took advantage of Malabrigio, Ella Rae and Madeleine Tosh.

 

 

So with all this yarn did I do any knitting? Completed projects between playing with grandson? Well between naps –

 

 

Sea of Dreams baby blanket for daughter no 2’s friend. And I couldn’t resist using one of the yarns I had bought at Sisters of the Wool so daughter no 1 is now the proud owner of

a scalloped shawl by Malabrigio from their sock yarn beautiful colours and much admired

 

 

 

Instrument of torture

Different Lines finished! I’m really pleased with the way it drapes and the colours, daughter had it on most of yesterday evening. My friend who modelled in the Pics liked it too.

Can’t wait to find the right yarn to knit for myself.

So tried to knit a row of Queen of Spades (see previous blog) but not feeling it so yarn from stash is calling.

Bought this on my last USA trip along with several other unusual yarns in a little store called Great Balls of Yarn. Been waiting to find the right pattern and it looks like Calisto will be the one so I have got the instrument of torture out!

Well it could be a rack but no it’s a wool winder – Amish style, really easy to use and in no time 3 skeins are balls and we are ready to rock and roll.

So Calisto started 9mm needles so should be a fast knit so watch this space.
