Last week I visited a lovely place called Wave Hill. Believe it or not, it sits beautifully in the Bronx. It is a place that you could meander through their many small gardens, have a nice lunch at the cafe and sit and look out way above the Hudson river and dream.
In August, remember my trip to North Carolina to deposit my money and my first child to college? Well the yarn that I bought, I finished doing something with it, which is my new pledge. If I'm going to buy yarn, I have to start something before I buy more. I don't necessarily have to finish it but I at least have to start something. Yeah, yeah, I know, that doesn't do a damn thing about my other problem "startitist" but at least my stash isn't growing, just my WIPs!
Plymouth Boku, 3 skeins and some random yarn for the ruffled top.
The bag is done, I guess I should have it lined and get the strap put on. This is my first time deciding on a leather strap for the handles.This is a quickie cap I made one night with Patagonia cotton. It is a bit too big but I'll wear it for days when I want to look Bohemian.
I also finished off a Cascade Indulgence shawl/scarf I made with some sale yarn I bought from my LYS before their summer sale. Why do people buy sale yarn before a big sale is something I need help figuring out.
Oh, and I've discovered Noro for scarves. I made this with Silk Garden. I can just do these scarves forever. They are easy k1p2 rib, you can make them thin or wide. This one is only 4 inches wide so the striping isn't that pronounced. Next time I'll make it wider so I can get thinner stripes.
