I've been on a bit of a yarn buying spree lately. Here's some yarn that came yesterday. It was a great deal on ebay.
Here are my purchases from Carol's The Sheep Shed Studio. I'm really liking Brown Sheep, so needed more of it.
I wanted the orange Cotton Fleece for a new sweater for me. (All this knitting of orange and green stuff makes me want my own.) Also, I'm starting a CIC knitalong and needed some bulky yarn. Plus....why not some cotton sock yarn for summer socks?
That'll keep me busy for awhile....
In the meantime, more finishing has occurred.
My Green Gable sweater (that's not green) now has a picot hem. I love it. The sewing down of the hem edge didn't even annoy me.
After some debate about sleeves (meaning....drink another cup of coffee while I think about it), I stuck with original pattern that did a 1x1 ribbing. The neckline has a row of purl, the bottom is picot, so it seems like a mishmash (if I had kept with the pattern's original idea of bottom ribbing it would've matched but now it doesn't.)
I have to hide about 6 ends and then block it.
Hmmm.... two sweaters finished in two days. It must be time to cast on!
