This morning, Dana and I (and her friend who made the beautiful needle holder shown below, which I forgot to blog about when she gave it to me at Roanoke NoSoKnit. Bad Jadie!) went to Roanoke to visit Knitter's Knook again. Becky is now having a 50% off sale!!!
I got a lot of knitting done on the way and while we were there, and with just a little more work once I got home I have finished the first baby bootie for Sam's sister.
Just needs a mate and either a ribbon or other tie through the wee holes.
I brought home quite a nice purchase.. I had taken a book with me wanting to try a sweater. I was leafing through the book and looking for inspiration, when suddenly I realized I was looking at the exact yarn called for in a beautiful pattern, with just the right number of skeins left!
(only pictured two) Its a gorgeous color in Cascade Pastaza. Normally sold at $9 a skein, 4 skeins and 50% off = an $18 sweater!! How cool is that?
I also got *shame* 2 more skeins of sock yarn. But! I have a very specific pattern in mind for them. I just couldn't decide between brown and blue.
After finishing the bootie, the kitties and I have been lazy all day. Kitty even snuggled up for a nap resting his head on my belly. I had to stop knitting to wrap my arms around him. Then I've been working on my Wollemeise socks.
