Why is it that you only really truly want something when you are told you can't have it?
My yarn diet is going great guns. I have told the hubby that if he buys me yarn that it doesn't break the diet (complete with loaded looks and tons of hint hint). The truth of the matter is that I don't really need more yarn. I just want more yarn. I have gotten a few things done since Intercon, though I haven't gotten around to taking pictures and making posts about them.
Pictures that will make it to the galleries in the upcoming week:
The Bzz hat from Stitch and Bitch Nation. I made the hat with size six circular needles (that I have reclaimed*) and the leftover purple Lamb's Pride yarn from the capelet. I have very little of the yarn left and only need to sew on the hedgehog buttons to be done. It is for a friend in the Virginia-DC area, so it is mostly for when he visits the Boston area in the winter.
A hat for the Dulaan project out of the bright pink Malabrigo. This one is also on size six needles and I started it this morning. I want to finish the skein and I figured a child-sized hat would do the trick. I want to rib the thing all the way up into the decreases, so we'll see how that works.
A second Odessa from a few weeks ago that is going to a friend in Pennsylvania with some fudge of space and time. I have a box that is nearly ready to go that has the hat and a single skein of Malabrigo. She does freeform knitting, so I think I should go through and make some of the scraps I have part of her collection.
*What am I reclaiming the needles for?
W. I started it on Saturday at Circles and I am nearly done the front (or is it the back). Other than a brief confusion where the pattern starts off with Make 2 (and I think that it would be best to have the pattern say Back and then Front (same as back)), it is going well. I am using yarn left over from the wedding shawls from last year. I had 3.5 skeins of Chasing Rainbows yarn left, and I think it will take 2.5 to make the tank top. I have no idea what I will do with the last skein.
