Lotsa Knits

Posted by allie on November 29, 2006

I’ve been doing a lot of knitting this past week. I began a scarf from the Rowan Classic Art Pattern Book with some Alpaca, Woold, Silk blend DK yarn from A.C Moore.

I was knitting my 3″ wide scarf on 14″ needles…

So I went to A.C. Moore to get some shorter 9″ needles.

Here’s the scarf’s detail:

I’ve been expanding both my book repertoire and enhancing my stash this week. I got the newest issues of Rebecca and Rowan at Loopville, it’s the first time a LYS in my area has had my two favorite knitting mags.

So I snatched them up immediately.

Today I was shopping at a used bookstore and found Knit loves Crochet in excellent condition (seriously, I’m picky about used books) for only $9.50.

Also, I bought some more of the wool, alpaca, silk DK yarn I’m using for my scarf in a great taupe color. I’m planning on eventually making a nice winter wrap, probably from my new Rebecca!!!

I will try from now on to post more regularly… try being the operative word.
Happy Last Day of November tomorrow!! I will be making the December Monthly Dishcloth KAL cloth soon and I’m excited about the holidays.

Soon to come… wrapping up my holiday knits.

    Hey Allie! I did a search for the “Peru DK Luxury” yarn and came across your blog (I see you love that yarn, too!). Strangely enough, I also live in TN and am a Grad student at UT.

    I’m making a pair of thick socks for a Christmas present and only bought 2 balls of the Peru DK Luxury yarn at AC Moore…major miscalculation! You wouldn’t happen to have stocked up on any of the deep purple color, would you?? (I know it’s been on sale at AC Moore lately). The yarn is absolutely wonderful…so soft and rich! I’m hoping it holds up well with time.
