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
