I realized after my last post that I forgot to post a picture of my nieces sweater in progress. So here it is: Knitting Pure and Simple Children's Neck Down Bolero. I think she'll love it! I haven't gotten much further with this - work is literally kicking my butt. I can't tell you how much I love the feel of this yarn!
Over the weekend, my LQS had a scrap sale. 2 pounds of scraps for $5. Lots of the pieces were almost fat quarter sized. I picked up some solid black Michael Miller fabric that I've heard everyone rave about. It was a lot of fun - lots of us standing and sorting through tables of scraps, laughing and talking and passing on fabric you knew someone was looking for. Here is a sampling of the 3 pounds I picked up.
As I mentioned, working is ramping up and I've taken on more responsibilities, which I do enjoy. But the time lines are tighter and it's taking more of my time. My free time. I seriously need to check and see if the lottery ticket in my wallet is a winner! I need to be able to take an early retirement, pay my bills, and support my fiber habits! Does anyone else have any ideas on how I can make this work?!
