Tuesday night I went knitting at Knit Knack. I finished my 2nd barn raising square and started a ribbed scarf to match my Koolhaas Hat. I know, I really need to work on the sleeves for my Hourglass Sweater, but I was lazy and didn’t feel like taking more stuff with me.
I did pick up a couple things at the shop. Mary-Kay dyed 30 skeins of her Red Rocks Fiber Works Aspen Sock yarn in the colorway “Pink Ribbon”. She and Gerri (owner of Knit Knack) will be donating 30% of the yarn sales to the Susan G. Koman foundation. I think it’s great that they’re doing this all because of our friend Nicole!
I’m not even sure what I’ll make with this, I just thought it was pretty and for such a great cause :)
I’ve been looking for a cardigan pattern that I could make to wear at work. Don’t you just love how hot it gets outside, but inside it’s freezing because of the air conditioning? I thought this cardigan looked really pretty, and they had a sample in the shop so I decided to give it a try.
I don’t really want to knit with wool right now and I’m not much of a multi-stripes person, so I would like to do this with a different yarn. Plus, I want something kind of neutral so it will go with anything.
Of course, yesterday I saw this on Ravelry, and this could be a good option too.
Decisions, decisions ;)
