Photos from Over the Weekend

Sunday was be-a-vegetable-day. Being a vegetable involved making potholders (something I haven't done for... oh... 25 years?) on a cheap plastic loom using "Hot Loops". Think unnaturally-bright colors, and then multiply by ten. These things should glow in the dark. They don't, but they really, really should.


Next, we have Things I Won't Actually Pay That Much For But Want. Actually, I could probably afford the cute little sweater pictured below. JCPenney has good sales. It's much more fun, however, to hit the Giant Stash of Yarn and make my own. (I've never done just half-a-zipper. Should be entertaining.)



And guess what was in the PO Box Wednesday night? My package from Knitty Noddy!!! Look at the pretties....

Ocean Depth, for
Pretty as a Peacock

Pistachio for
Secret of the Stole

I actually showed AMAZING willpower. I had this yarn ALL WEEKEND and didn't start the shawl until last night.

Look. Pattern and Untouched Yarn.
For FOUR DAYS.

Seven Rows In!

And finally, just in case you missed it on the Daily Chum: real actual nylon fiber-basedGLOW IN THE DARK YARN!!!!
I figure what, ten balls to make a sweater?

  1. I am a sucker for anything "glow-in-the-dark." Just ask my kids! I have seen this yarn before, but have never actually bought any. I like their ideas about using it as an accent for accessories for runners.

  2. Great colour choice for the peacock.

    Remember, knitting is for fun and relaxation, not to put deadlines on yourself. I say that to myself all the time, but all those blogs - all that ravelry - all those finished items - it's hard not to feel th pressure!
