blah blah and blah blah blah

Though I haven’t been knitting a whole lot, I thought I’d share my latest project. I’m working on Stripes Go Round from Interweave (spring? summer? 2004, anyway). I am using some Classic Elite Star that I got last year. It’s sproingy stuff, since it has 1% lycra in it. Here it is so far:

That green is the start of some random striping. I wasn’t sure I’d have quite enough of the burgundy/maroon/wine (that color description is just for Rachael), so I thought I’d incorporate some stripes, since it would be rather unpleasant to continue with one color only to run out at the very end. I usually don’t gravitate toward this maroon color, but I think it’ll be okay.
Okay, enough of that! If you feel like doing some shopping, here are a couple of ideas:
Action Hero Melissa is selling some of her crocheted flowers and knitted kerchiefs on her blog, so go check them out! Act fast, since they are sure to sell quickly.
– I got a message from Mary at FoxyKnits that she just returned from a koigu-buying trip in Canada. Apparently she cleaned out the barn and has koigu coming out her ears! FoxyKnits is where I got my Caryl’s Kerchief kit, a great and fun-to-knit kit. So if you have a hankering for some koigu, contact Mary!

    Oooh, spongey yarn. I love the sound of it—-must get some for myself…… probably makes a nice stretchy sweater. Yum!

    You know I love anything burgundy/maroon/wine. Heck, our college team was the Maroons! I’m sure it will be great as I also love random stripes. 🙂

    I like that Star color! Stripes are your friend. I enjoyed working with the Star, but I think it shrinks up quite a bit in length when washed. The turntleneck I made out of it is rather shorter than planned. It’s either shrinkage or I’m a bad measurer. I’ve got plenty of the apple green left over if you want/need it.
