I'm starting something new. To get out of having to come up with a clever title for each post, I'm turning to the dictionary for a random word. Maybe it'll fit in with the post. Maybe not. Maybe I'll come up with a clever way to make it fit. In any case, this starts NOW.
Ahh bounty. Bountiful, actually. How could I not feel bountiful? Besides all the wonderful stash I've already shared with you, today I get home from a trip to the LYS, and I have this:
I have this:
and I have this:
The magazines are obviously to read. The yummy colorful stuff is a Fleece Artist kit of mohair and Blue-Face Leicester (I don't know what this means but it says it on the tag) to make myself a pair of mittens. I fell in love with the colors and fondled it every time I went to the LYS. I guess my willpower today was at a low, 'cus somehow it ended up in my hands at the cash AFTER I'd already bought and paid for my other stuff. I'd like to think I'll have them done while its still cold out, but who am I kidding? I live in Canada. It's cold until June.
The Snowflake and Silky stuff are to make a teddy bear to be gifted (by someone else, not me. I'm just doing the knitting). I imagine it will be very cute once done, especially since I found a little shop that sells teddy eyes and snouts. I can't wait to see the finished project, but I won't be casting this on until at least January. Too much holiday stuff to do first.
For those who are amazed that this post's word fits perfectly with the post, well, ok, I cheated. I picked this first word. Whatever, my blog, my rules. All future ones will be random, I promise.
And for anyone who has issues with knitters or knitting in general, read the cover of knit.1 up there. Knitting is Sexy. Told you so.
