Keep knitting

August 28, 2012

I have been putting my ideas in order and preparing for graduate school (yeah!).  Found out the university didn’t have a craft club. The Horror! During our new student retreat this past weekend I motivated some people and already got the support of about 5 students and spoke to the president of student associations. I’d be happy even with an informal group. Crossing my fingers…

I also went camping last week in Rhode Island and did some island hopping to Newport and Block Island. I saw this bird in Newport and thought the color combination and design could look good as a scarf. I can sense that I am going to buy more yarns in the upcoming weeks.

I haven’t put my needles down. I actually knitted my first shirt. Well, it was a basic shirt but the point is besides some touch-ups I actually finished it.

I also started to crochet a rug I think I want it twice as big.

Found these gathering dust all around the house: unfinished little pouches, squares and other mystery projects

Of course I could not resist to buy yarns on sale from School Products Yarns in Manhattan. They are moving and were selling past knitting/crochet magazine for $1 and tons of discounted yarns. I had to buy them.

And bought this wonderful black silk and linen Berroco yarn at the fashionable Loopy Mango

    Haven’t been to RI in years. Thanks for sharing the pics. Great yarn buys, by the way. I would not have been able to resist the sale either.

      I really loved the feel of the area. I took tons of pictures. I think I am going add a few more photos for you to see 🙂

        Love the one of the narrow path or alley with the bright red doors. The yellow house is sooooo RI. Thanks for adding!
