I Want to Knit
Tuesday, September 18, 2007
thurs, sept 13
Thursday was night 2 of Rosh Hashana. I think I putzed around the house all day (the problem with post-blogging is a failing memory!) because I knew it would be a busy night. If memory serves at all, I worked on my Knitty submissions.
We're actually not hockey fans in this house. Hear that? That was a collective gasp from all the Canadians who read this blog. Don't worry...we like hockey...we're just not partial to a particular team, nor do we feel the need to watch it on TV. Get me tickets to a live game though, especially when the Habs (Canadians) are playing, and I'm SO there! Instead, we're football fans...the Colts...and yes, we started rooting for them years before their superbowl win. Or, rather, Yannick has, which makes Jakob and I Colts fans by default. Unfortunately I don't have any Colts stuff for Jakob yet, but I did have this cute little Canadians outfit that he was just about to grow out of, so I put it on him to go to my parents' house for dinner.


It was with my dad's side of the family so we got to see Robyn and Sean. I still didn't get any knitting done, but I did manage to enhance my stash! :]
Robyn brought me some Noro Silk Garden from her store. It is going to be a scarf, for me me me. I am a knitter who does not own a hand-knit scarf. (Yes, I'm ignoring the multicolored fun-fur one in my closet because I didn't know any better, and yes, I'm also ignoring the Vegas scarf, which doesn't match my Winter coat, and yes, I'm ignoring the unfinished Clapotis).


I also got my kit from her September Sock Club. The yarn was custom-dyed to match the colors of Robyn's store, and while they are not colors I would have said to put together, the finished result is really funky! I am going to use it to make the socks from the pattern provided, and they will be for me me me too.

EDITED TO ADD: turns out the colors WERE custom dyed-but not specifically to match the shop. Which is funny, 'cus they DO match the splash page of Robyn's store (turquoise with an orange bird). In any case...I love the yarn! :)
Robyn also brought me a birthday present- more Socks that Rock! She didn't know I was ordering with Maaike and had wanted to be the one to give me my first STR skein. I love the colors!

Sean had brought Jakob some clothes too as a gift for his first Rosh Hashana but they're in the wash and I forgot to photograph them. :)

    I totally agree about the september sock club kit. Love the STR and I can't wait to see the Noro scarf!

    Jenn, the colors don't match my shop? They were just colors that hand-dyer thought would work great - and I liked her results, so I said "go with it!" LOL... but I actually have a yarn in the works to match my shop, and it's pastels?! (Pink, green and blue to match my logo!) It'll be available next month I think!

    Those other scarves definitely don't count! Love the yarn. Lots of different, fun colors. My posted projects haven't really gotten very far lately. For the reason why you'll have to visit my blog. ;)
