Now on to working on the sidebars.
I have been pattern hording or should I call it whoring...... Does anyone else do this? Where you just sit for hours on the computer sifting through Ravelry, saving patterns to your computer, printing them out & just reading them for the shear excitement of reading them, & dreaming about what your project will look like. If you ever get to it!
I found 3 patterns that I love from ChicKnits. Lara just knit Cassidy & when I went to look at it I ended up with 2 other patterns as well. I bought Ribby Cardi, Cassidy, & Basic Chic Hoodie. Ribby is definitely my fav!
Then off to Ravelry stashes I went to see if anyone had the yarns that I wanted. They did. I bought. We are all good.
My husband was telling me last night that he read somewhere recently that in tough economic times historically people will spend money on there "vices" or "habits". So I am guessing that beer, cigarettes, porn, & yarn sales have gone WAY up. Knitting just doesn't seem to fit with those, does it?
I also LOVE the new Knitty surprise, Franken Socks, created by this talented lady right here.
I just wish they would of put them out the beginning of October so you could have them in time for Halloween, but on the bright side if you use the recommended yarn it is only $3.99 a skein. Now that is a deal!
I also bought KoolHaas by Jared Flood. It looks hard but I would like to tackle it for my husband. I am going to the Ravelry ISO destash group & see if I can locate a nice Penn State Blue for his Kool Haas.
I would list all the wonderful patterns I downloaded, bought, & saved but it would take forever & Jack is asleep so mama gets to shower! Here's a quick photo I took of my new finds.
P.S. Stop over and say congrats to Abi!
