Pretty Pretty Pinki-poo

I've started a new WIP:


For those of you who did not read this blog when I started it, I once tried to knit this shrug before and half-way through realized that I was purling "wrong" and twisting my stitches on the purl side. I just couldn't continue working on it after that and ripped it out, vowing to start it again (without the twisted stitches) someday in the future. Well, that day has finally come and I'm pleased to say that it is working out quite nicely. :)

In other happy news, I have a Butterfly Girl Designs drop spindle on reserve!! I have been oogling her spindles for quite some time, but this new bunch she is selling is absolutely TO DIE FOR. I couldn't resist. I will be officially ordering it on Saturday!! Once it arrives, I will be one happy spindler!

Also, I'm frogging my mom's sweater. Instead I am knitting her a cute button placket t-shirt from the latest KnitSimple...in a nice buttery yellow Shine Sport from Knitpicks. As soon as the yarn arrives (I'm hoping it's a good fit for the pattern...we will have to wait and see), I will get crackin' on it. It's a short sleeve number, so I'm not worried about finishing it by the end of March anymore. lol That was kind of a crazy idea anyway, but a little crazy never hurt anyone. I can't wait to get started on it, as it is completely adorable (I mean seriously, It has PICOT EDGES and cap sleeves!!!!). I may even knit one for myself later if I like it enough!

Ooooh, I really like that pattern. I'm new to KnitSimple, but I was very pleased with this issue. Can't wait to see how it turns out!
