On the Needles – Friday 12/12/14

DSCN3965  I’m still knitting along on the Wiggle Wrap.  Last time I showed it I think I was at the red/orange (before the dark purple/black) on the right hand side.  That’s how far the first balls of Kauni took me.  I’ve added on the next ones and knit about 6 or 8 inches so far this week.

The Shawl Collared Cowl – which I showed earlier this week

DSCN3959will get blocked this weekend and I’ll hunt through the button bin.  It’s a gift for a friend and should be snuggly warm.


But check out these cool bowls I found tonight.  I had to buy them!

DSCN3964Love the knit/cable designs on them and the bright red insides.  The larger one is the perfect size to hold a large half grapefruit so I think that will be my grapefruit eating bowl. 🙂  They are just to fun.


Unlike friend Judy who was very good not buying yarn this week….yep, I’ll have a couple packages arriving.  The Wollmeise I ordered a couple days ago should arrive Monday.  Plus, I was looking at the projects I want to make in the not too distant future and one of them is Spring Kerchief which is made with two colors of lace weight yarn. I happened to find a lovely combination in the Last Call section of discounted yarns at TLE so those will be arriving as well next week.

This weekend may see the new Christmas tree removed from its box and set up and maybe even decorated but I really need to spend some quality time in my sewing room getting the borders on the wedding quilt so I can start quilting on it.

And the big news here today – an early baby arrival this a.m.  I’m now officially a “Great Aunt” to a new little girl.  Which also means there’s a baby quilt that needs to be quilted too. 🙂
