There was plenty of yarn left, so rather than let more than 1/2 of a skein sit and marinate in my stash for maybe ever, I cast on and began another scarf, using the horseshoe print lace scarf. It's an 8 row pattern repeat, and if I ever spend a lot of time on it I hope I can memorize it because it's in words, and i have found I like charts better, for lace. And thanks to Kris W, my secret pal from the fall FFBE for telling me that "sock yarn doesn't have to be used for just socks" because, you know, I don't knit socks. :-)
Yesterday at the LYS, in addition to the goodies I picked up for my contest prizes, I took advantage of their 50% off sale (i know, right?) and picked up 3 of these, for a wrap to knit for a friend's b-day in September...or maybe Christmas. :-) This green is her color.
I also got this awesome tote bag, and when I checked out saw that I received 20% off the Malabrigo, it's Deb's 1 year anniversary sale. Since I was buying one that one for a prize, I just HAD to get me one too. :-)
Oh, and even I won a contest! Mary over at SitnKnit wanted to know some of our favorite blogs for her Bloggerversary contest, and my name was chosen 1st. I picked the Cascade220. I don't know yet what it will be, but for now it's in good company with the rest of my stash. I love that color. Thanks, Mary!
I haven't knitted a stitch since Friday night, between the contest and pictures for my blog, so I'm going to go do just that now before the day is over. Have a good week ahead.
