**Some of this was posted Wednesday, for the very small number that read it, I apologize for the repeats**
So looky there! I started moving totes up to the attic room...my newly dubbed "Stash Space" It looks like this right now
I have cast on another new project, the Colourscape Cowl....I don't have a picture of it yet...but I'm loving it so far....
I did pick up my Carlos and Arne socks after a long hiatus..I cast them on 9" circs, but I kept losing stitches off of them, so I put them on some Karbonz...I also started the second sock...it's about double the size of what is shown in the picture, but not matching, which may drive me mad...
And I am pounding away at the Sockhead hat.....I have about 4" to go before decreasing for the top..
Sunday is the cast-on for the Beekeeper Cardigan. I'm all set and ready for that....my yarn is Malabrigo in Sunset
It is also the start date for the Venetian Cowl, this is crochet. I'm excited to have a beautiful crochet project to work on...this is the yarn I am using.
I'm thinking of casting on a pair of shortie socks for July 4....but am resisting...also wound a whole bunch of skeins yesterday for some upcoming projects....I will be busy the month of July...
I'll need to get a new goals list up for the month, probably next week.
And I'll be getting up early on Sunday to shop in the #titsoutcollective. If you have not heard of this, it's here on Countess Ablaze's blog....I have my eye on several things, so we'll see what I'm able to snag....this will be the last "big" yarn buying until Rhinebeck...not saying I won't buy other yarn, I know myself too well....
- finish or close to finish the Kiss Me, I'm Irish
- figure out and work the Fish Kiss Lips heel on Keep Swimming
