I think the new yarn I’ve bought is finally out of my system…
There are three baby hats there for friends of Gorgeous Man. Seems his friends are having a bit of a baby boom this year 😉 and two for Gorgeous Girl. The yarn is Elle Escapade in the roller coaster colourway and the pattern is based on Handle.
I’ve started knitting up my first homespun. The very first yarn that came off the wheel. It’s fun, and it’s even acting like real yarn! But I can’t decide if it’s wonderfully rustic or if I am in fact knitting carpet.
Gorgeous Man gets the “Gee-I-dodged-a-bullet-I’m-so-glad-she-isn’t-making-that-for-me” look on his face whenever I work on it.
It’s going to be a beanie for my step-father-in-law. I have to admit that the yarn is a little scratchy and I’m pinning my hopes on a good soak in wool wash.
So, let me know, rustic or carpet?
In other news (because nothing is simple here) after great wailing, gnashing of teeth and several phonecalls to banks and online booking services we finally have our plane tickets booked and confirmed. Did I mention that I’m looking forward to visiting home?
