Photos?! Ve got your photos!
This though is the real treasure. Handknit in the round. Nice and soft too. Way too big for me, but since we do want to have another baby after Girly is in school and I have worked for a bit, I'm going to put it away and save it for then. I got big enough with Girly to fit it, so it will probably fit during another pregnancy.
Whoever knit this is pretty darn good. Check out the inside.
Saturday there was a huge garage sale at the home of a
There were a ton of bottles there too and I thought these would be a pretty way to store beads and buttons. Although the two with the handles on them are originally wine decanters and may get used that way again. Right now they are clean, shiny and showing me how long it has been since I washed the rest of the glass stuff on top of the cupboards. The aqua glass one had me thinking of a nice boucle yarn. It's my favourite.
Then there is the real find. I was looking through a box of stuff, when I noticed this. A work in progress. Apparently the wife was a knitter (All the rest of her stash had already been appropriated by the mother of the woman running the sale, I offered to fight her for it, but it was already gone.) and this was in her box of UFOs. I won't be able to finish it since there was no red yarn and what is left of the white and black wouldn't be enough anyway. I like the pattern though. I couldn't even find the other knitting needle. It is wool so I think a nice felted bag, clutch and wallet type of thing. It needs washing anyway, so why not in hot water?
Look at where she got the wool! Apparently when you bought a sweater kit from Mary Maxim, you had a choice of wool or acrylic. Nice choice and it feels like a nice wool too.
Maybe Mary Maxim will consider bringing it back since more and more people want good quality wool.
Tomorrow another prize for the Relay for Life draw. It's a good one too. Hint: There are many.
