Work just hasn’t been that busy so knitting is making progress. On The Needles right now:
1) still working on Mom’s Not Pink Stole 2) Holly Red and Green Snowflakes
I’ll be writing up the free pattern for this pair shortly. The ‘snowflakes’ are pretty easy and can be placed wherever suits you on the leg portion. The heel is your somewhat standard sl1 type heel and the turn will be fairly standard as well. At the moment, I’m planning the instep and sole to be plain green and toe plain red but that is subject to change.
3) Blackrose Wristlets
The free pattern for these pretty wristlets is from Knitty 2008 by Knittyspin. I like the way these are working up in Knit Picks Imagination.
This afternoon I took Marci shoe/cosmetic shopping. omg…. How does one spend that much money so fast?! yikes. But, she really does need the shoes. One of her close friends is getting married next Friday (yep, day before Halloween) and Marci needs shoes to wear to the celebration. I ended up getting her a pair of flats, pair of heels, a warm winter hat and some mittens (she DID ask if I could make some for her which of course, I all ready have started but she needs some this week so….) I even bought myself a $6 pair of blue shoes with black heels and we decided $2.00 on vintage type clutchish handbags was a fantastic deal so got one red one and one nude/black lace one to share.
David needs new shoes too so…. going to have to get some next week along with a couple pairs of jeans.
