Why do we have to work?
So, I am back at work today after a funeral and having carpet put in the house....and I am looking at knitting patterns, reading knitting forums, and blogs. I think I am addicted. I think work is boring and can't seem to focus! I guess I'll have to focus as soon as I post this.
In knitting news, I finished the back to the Yarn Girl's sweater in Meunch Marokko poppy. I had to knit very loosely to get the guage, and I think I am still going to have to block this thing to get it to fit correctly. Oh, well...it'll be cute when complete though.
I started a long skinny scarf on size 9s that I must now finish before I can do the front of the sweater. I am using Lion Brand's Landscapes in Rose Garden. I saw the colors and loved them, so I thought I would give it shot.
Some people are very prejudice against Lion Brand, but I honestly don't have anything against it. Besides the Marokko and the Lush I have, I mostly use Lion Brand just because I have easy access....I am impatient and hate to wait for yarn. I haven't had the problems eveyone refers to, but then maybe I haven't used it in projects with a lot of wear....I'm sure I'll move into the more respected yarns soon.
