Tuesday Tidbits

Here are a few things I’ve been thinking about.

  • Now that summer is over (yes, my heart just sank a little bit at that thought) I would be very happy if we just moved right on to winter. A killing frost and a layer of snow would be nice. I feel so allergic, runny nose, itchy eyes and as of this morning a dull headache and ear pain.
  • I always learn something new at Knit Night. There is a Hobby Lobby about 30 minutes from my house and I never knew. I suspect it won’t be the be all end all of craft stores but I find it exciting that there is somewhere else to go. Now to find the time to get there.
  • Also, Hobby Lobby will be my conciliation prize because we are now booked with other obligations every weekend with a fall knitting event. I can order some yarn online too I suppose.
  • Beth got her Wingspan and she liked it. YAY!
  • I’m toying with the idea of a new sweater. Yes, I know I have two in the UFO pile but they are not what I am thinking of. I want something warm, cozy, smaller gauged to wear around the house. Something like this or this. I think I have stash yarn for it too.
  • I was also thinking a vest might meet the requirements. What are the requirements? Well I want something to keep me warm when I refuse to turn the heat up. Groceries and oil are the two budget items I have seen the greatest price increases in. I also have some control over these. I am going to try to keep the cost of these as low as I can. That means the thermostat is staying down as low as we can stand it for as long as we can stand it. So yes, a vest. I really like this one and this one.

So what’s on your mind? Are you planning any new knits?

    Ya, I want it to be winter already too, I am dressing like it now anyways though, it’s been so cold. And I really think you should knit a sweater or vest, because it’s that season. They’ve been calling me lately also. Congrats on finding a hobby lobby,and also on your friend loving her wingspan!

    Just keep in mind that Hobby Lobby isn’t open on Sundays. It’s one of those quirky things about it.

    I vote for the Tangled Yoke Cardigan and/or the Tumbleweed vest! Go for it. I am still mourning summer, but at least my allergies have quieted down despite the lack of frost. I gave in last night and put the down comforter on the bed, but it will have to get a lot colder before the heat gets turned on! I think I’ll dig through my stash to find the Zauberball Crazy and get started on a Wingspan….

    I thought I was ready for winter and snow too, until it snowed and I found out I wasn’t really ready after all! Just to early for me…
    I looked at your patterns. I really like the tangled yoke sweater. Pretty!

    The Tumbleweed vest is terrific! I love that one and both cardis are pretty, esp. the Kate Davies one.

    Oh please make another sweater! You’ll need it when that winter weather you want comes your way! Sorry but I don’t like Hobby Lobby and won’t shop there for personal ideological reasons, Michaels however is wonderful.
