Lots of evening knitting lately. I have been working on this sweater and having a great time seeing it grow, I love the color, I love the pattern and I love the thought of wearing it and maybe just maybe having someone say "oh what a pretty sweater where did you get it" and then I can say oh well thank you I made it. ahhh to say it out loud. I love that part, Mostly because a couple of years ago I could not have said that.
Here is the little knitting bag/stand that I have been using to house this project. I picked it up at the thrift shop for 3.00 with the idea that I would redo it but found myself using and loving it! its just so handy
I thought I'd share a little bit of my laundry room with you too, since it pertains to knitting, in this little corner anyway. This is a little bulletin board that I made a few years back and am now using it to help me remember how to take care of my hand knits. Plus it makes me do a gauge swatch ( a swatch of knitting that ensures you are using the correct sized needels for your project ) it's usually a 4"X4" square. I take that square along with the washing instructions from the skein of yarn and pin it to the board.
and since thier are all those symbles that I don't understand I printed out a little cheat sheet from a site like this one.
