WIP Wednesday & Yarn Along
I cast-on the Britta Lalena Head Wrap after realising I was getting into a funk with February Lady Sweater. This is short enough and small enough to not need much concentration or time, and I should get it finished Thursday night.
The yarn I am using is GGH Baby Alpaka in the most gorgeous bluey green colour which is quite hard to capture on camera. It is so lovely and smooshy and feels incredibly warm already.
After last weeks crisis of faith when it came to finishing Jittterbugs Brownstone in time for Christmas, I cracked on and the inches fell away. I knit on this Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings and it has pretty much doubled in size since last week. I have now cast-off the middle section and will be working flat now *booooooo*
No further progress was made to the Lizard Ridge block that I showed last week.
In other exciting news, I got a new cover for my kindle!
M-Edge store has so many designs of covers, there were 3 or 4 custom covers that I loved that would have worked out the same price wise but there is a shipping time of 2-3 weeks on those ones. I have sent links to Jitterbug though so he may just get me one for my birthday or Christmas.
I also fell in love with decalgirl skins. Could spend a lot of money on that website! It works out cheaper to buy from there and get them sent over than to buy a skin in the UK! Maybe next month....
