I Caved!

Monday, April 30, 2007

I forgot to mention the other day that I finally bought a yarn winder. I am getting so tired of always winding it up by hand and then it rolling away when I knit with it. I want to be lazy and get the winder to do it. Ok I'll still have some work to do because I will have to act as the swift but I'm planning on getting that soon. It was on sale on joann.com and I can't wait to get it, I have so much yarn to wind up!

I finally listed all my alpaca on the destash blog. Hopefully I can trade or sell it all. Oh and if anyone wants to trade something for my simple knitted bodice top (see this post), I will consider all offers. It's worth about 50 bucks or so yarn-wise, but mostly I don't want it to go to waste. I'm looking for lace weight yarn to replace my alpaca since all my planned projects are now missing their lace yarn. Oh and the corset top on that same post is up for trade as well. It will stretch quite a bit, so let me know!

I have one other shirt that needs just one sleeve on it. It's the Krista Tee from White Lies Designs and it's done in Cascade Pima Tencel in 4084 (darker than the color on yarn.com tho... I think it was supposed to be called moss). Both of these tops are for a size 36 inch bust, at least...maybe more. So if you're interested drop me a line. I want someone to enjoy them. Usually I pass it all on to my mom but she suggested I trade stuff.

I finally got the pic of my rusted root top, and only because people came over today and I had to get dressed lol. Wow I'm really lazy. I just wanted a pic other than me in pj's lol. And I still have ends to weave in. I'm seriously in love with this top tho, it's flattering on every person I've seen make it so far.

I'm also making progress on my create-along top, which I've finally named. The Barmaid Top. It's inspiration was the barmaid corsetty shirts from olden days. So it's obvious that it should be named thus.

Ok well that's it for now, it's late and I'm tired! :P

At least I'm not the only one who wears pj's all day long.

Sorry I don't have any lace weight, I'd definitely trade you.
