...well, sort of ;)
this is the father's day gift i'm frantically trying to finish by this weekend.
but before you spit your coffee all over your moniter, i know it may not get done... but i'm dreaming and knitting like it's nobody's business...
i'm just at the yoke now... i actually had bought this yarn over a year ago, for a sweater for me.. but the hubs liked it too, so it became a sweater for him. I was skeptical that i'd have enough, (yarn that is...) but i thought i might, 'cause i was pretty sure that i had bought an extra skein or two... well... that there is the rest of the wool for the sweater. clearly not enough! eep!!
but guess what!?! i head on over to my lys yesterday and they have the skein i need... same dye lot!!! this never happens. especially after it being about a year since i first bought the yarn.
needless to say.. i am happy :)
so let's hope it gets finished!
(yep, this is the craft/play room.. it's a work in progress as well... but i'll fill ya in on it sometime)
i haven't even cast on yet for the kal. shocking, i know.. considering i've been chatting about it so so much.. but ... i'm also working on a store sample! wanna peek?
i'm thankful it's crochet ;) so pretty.. and goodness, so so soft. it's being worked up with sirdar calico dk.
it's a blend of cotton and acrylic. honestly, it's so soft! perfect for a little baby blanket ;)
here's hoping i can whip this one out quickly! :) and since i've only been working on it for 2 days.. i'd say i'm off to a good start....
but really... i'm keeping myself busy trying to finish up this sweater for the hubs... i think it would be nice to give for father's day... and owen is going to make a card. he's excited about the glitter glue... :) we've got a couple of other things planned too... and it might include popcorn ;)
tomorrow night is knit night! i'm excited, and hoping i'll have my kal along with me!
what are you up to this weekend? any father's day plans? i'd love to hear about them! how is the kal going for those involved? leave me a comment! i'm in the mood to chat today. :)
