One day closer to vacation
That title sounds so sad, but I am totally looking forward to a vacation to relax, sit and read, and of course get a little knitting done. We are housesitting for my father-in-law for two weeks, so I am really looking forward to my own house and gardens. I was out last Sunday doing a little raking and clearing off the flower beds. Then of course we had a hard frost and very cold temps last night. My April vacation will be some more raking and lawn clearing. Fresh air and solitude!
I found to tell you about the sock yarn I bought from Knitpicks. It arrived last week and I even put away in a drawer before I thought to take a picture. They were having a big sale and I figured, what the hay!
I really love the colors. I even got enough for another pair for my husband... the blues and orange. It is called Carnival. The rest is MINE!
Last week I also stopped in Target. I also see what they have on their clearancce shelves. Here's what I found:
Who knows If I'll make what the pattern calls for, but at those clearance prices I couldn't resist! The legwarmers, I bought two so I could make myself, yes... a pair of socks! The baby hooded blanket was so soft and adorable, of course it came home too!
As for what I am actually making these days. I am plugging away on the dress for my neice. Here is a sneak peak:
I am a little farther now, but not too much. The christening is set for May 14th, so I have some time, but I want to get it finished at least by the end of my April vacation.
I am off to make dinner, pasta with sauted green beans, carrots, onions and oil olive with fresh semolina bread.
