*bounce bounce bounce* Guess what! Guess what! Go ahead! Guess!!
Nope, you’re wrong!
I just bought yarn! *bounce bounce bounce* Yarn to knit a sweater with!
Ok… I’m calm. *bounce* That was the last one, I promise. *bounce*
So what sweater, I know you’re just DYING to know.
Kyoto from knitty.com. I saw a picture of someone’s finished sweater and thought it was just too cute. During lunch I hopped on over to the LYS and poof! Right there, they had the yarn I wanted. I debated for a while about colors. Originally I had thought “Navy blue top, with a pale blue bottom” but alas, they had no navy blue and only 1 skein of the pale blue that I liked. But this groovy green kept catching my eye the whole time I was looking. Finally I settled on this:
The green will be the sleeves and stripes,
the beige will be the bottom. I can’t wait to get home and start swatching!
In other knitting news, I think my mom is a little impatient to get her shawl. Why do you say that? Well here’s a transcript from a few e-mails we sent to eachother today:
Me: Without commenting on the as yet, though close to being done, unfinished shawl I’m making for you, how would you feel about a triangle shawl in pinks and yellows?
Mom: Let me think......would I like a triangle shawl? Hmmmmmm YES I WOULD LIKE A SHAWL. ROUND, TRIANGLE, SQUARE, PURPLE, ORANGE, PAISLEY......I DON'T CARE! I JUST WANT A SHAWL!!!!
Me: So what you’re saying is… you’d like a shawl sometime this century?
Mom: Yes please.
