Look...I have knit a cable....oh my gosh!!!
Well, I found this adorable cable knitted purse pattern on another blog, and if I knew how to link you I would. So, I will post pattern when done...how's that? Anyway, I began with some of my recycled yarn that I koolaid dyed and I'm starting to see my cable. AHHHHH! I have never used a cable needle or made a cable and I have impressed myself!! Not that it is sooo difficult, but I easily scare :) So, I am happily knitting this at night, after chores...
I also went to Target and bought every box of easter egg dye they had left! Not many, but I have added it to my collection and will continue to look for deep discounts to use when my roving arrives...someday. Still quite impatient and anxious!
I just got home from work, made a killer chicken and veggie chowder and slipped on my walking shoes to hit the road...I walk onto the porch, insert earphones....rain begins. *&%$#)**!!!! What is up with that? Why wait until I get home. Now I will be forced to stay inside and eat ice cream! Folks, let's take a look out the window and see if there has been reprieve. Nope still rain. Go get the spoon and bowl! Even Truman has been looking out the window wondering where the sun went!
I have given up on the feather and fan wrap for now. IT was ticking me off. Speaking of tick off. The Spawn of Satan was in rare form last night. I give up, yes I said it. I went to ply 2 skeins I had beaten out of her and she went nuts! No matter how I changed tension, held my mouth, crossed fingers, oiled bearings, and begged, she would not spin!!!! It was a MESS! Words cannot describe the carnage of my skeins. I just threw everything down and went to bed. Maybe...nah, not tonight
