My nephew Surfer Boy came with me on a yarn run today. His mom is recovering from surgery so I figured it would be nice for him tag along and get some yarn for the hat he wants. He wants a hat similar to the one I'm working on for Special K but with bigger ribs. I have been doing pretty good on my first attempt at a hat.
Audrey at Needles and Knobs says it's wonderful . She said the stretching is ok and will not be too noticable. I'm glad I showed it to her. She also told me about the needle stops...good idea. :) I have about 9 inches left to knit before the decrease.
While we were at Needles and Knobs we picked up some nice green yarn for Surfer Boy's hat. I didn't get a picture but it's Cascade Superwash in Sage.
Today, I realized that my niece Flower Girl's birthday is this Saturday. She turns the big 2-1. Yes, I am young yet have a niece that is only 21. She actually is only 6 yrs younger than me. We used to fight like sisters but have been getting along much better in our older ages. I realized if I'm going to give her a present I better get knitting. I haven't decided between beer cozies or a cellphone case. I might try to knock out both but we'll see. While out on my yarn run we stopped at Jo-Ann Fabrics and got some Sugar 'n Cream yarn. :) I couldn't decide on colors and I figured I can make some dishcloths out of it as well so I bought five skeins. :) I am realizing that my stash is growing and started to put all of the new yarn into ziploc bags to keep as much dog hair off of them as possible. I also bought some darning needles. What can I say???
