Case in point, the March 2011 socks:
I like the pattern okay, but the slipping stitches across every other row slows me down too. It is making a nice, dense fabric.
I am at the armholes on the baby sweater:
At least it is made in one piece; so, I have fronts and back up to that point simultaneously.
Cold Sheeping is still going well. I have not bought one ball of yarn since November 1. That's over four months! When I look at projects I want to make online, or in the yarn shop - or I see a yarn I'd like to try...it can be a little hard. Usually, I go upstairs to where my yarn stash lives and look through it a little, and I'm fine.
The DFW Fiber Fest is coming in three weeks...I have already planned to purchase yarn there. How could I not? Madelinetosh, The Woolie Ewe, Brooks Farm Yarns, The Knitting Fairy, Fiber Lady...just to name a few....will all be there. There will be yarn fumes to take in and yarn to pet. C.a.n.n.o.t.w.a.i.t. I think my strategy will be to allow myself a certain dollar amount and have things in mind that I really want. We shall see.
Anyone out there planning on coming to DFW Fiber Fest? What other fiber festival will you be attending in the next few weeks or months?
