Craft Room Show & Tell
Wooo Hoo! I have spent DAYS sorting thru all of my yarn, projects, crap I brought home from the office when I got laid off last summer, and misc. stuff. Finally, I can see the FLOOR of my craft room. It's been storming with wind and rain, day after day, so it was a good time to work inside. Just don't look in the closet!! Yikes! Scary! I still have lots of stuff to sell on eBay, but I'm waiting now until the house is sold so that I can spread it all out again to package in "Lots" by fiber type.
Rain, rain, rain - didn't even get out of my pajamas yesterday. I sorted thru boxes of misc. knitting patterns, magazines, stuff pulled from the internet, and dreamed of the days ahead that I will be able to make some of these projects. Tripped across my copy of Barbara Walker's "Charted Knitting Designs" and drooled over the unique patterns - doesn't your head just spin with the possibilities when you look at some of these excellent knitting resources? Mine does - shawls, sweaters, hats, socks - colors, textures, drape - sensory overload. So many opportunities - so little time (until later!!!).
I've joined another online knit-along - FLAK - Follow the Leader Aran Knitalong. This time it will be a sweater for me! Check out

So far, all we've done is swatch for gauge in the filler stitch, and practice for cables. So there's pleanty of time to join the fun!
