Has it really been 2 weeks since I posted last? I think I've been twittering too much and spending a lot more time out of the house. Now that the weather has warmed up I've been taking advantage of the situation and going to the Purple Purl whenever I can. Thankfully, I haven't been buying stuff every time I've been there but I did manage to buy this yarn when I was there on Friday for the Knitty Yarn Roundtable. It's Araucania Ruca and believe it or not it's 100% sugar cane. The yarn is made in Italy and it is so soft. I need to make something for my neck that I can wear at the office so the AC vent doesn't give me a soar neck/shoulder.
On the knitting front, I've finished a dress and started another one. The Little Sister's Dress is done and I've started the Vine Flower dress by Anne Hanson
. I finished the first of the Sweet Dreams Baby blankets and I am almost finished with the first star section on the second blanket. I still have to block the pink one but at least the knitting is done.
A friend that went to MDSW picked up two new Golding spindles for me. They are both gorgeous but I've been so busy trying to get some knitting done I haven't had a chance to even try them. I know they will spin like a dream just like my other Golding spindles.
In non knitting news, DH surprised me with an iPod Touch. Now that the wi-fi is all set up, let's just say I've become slightly (well maybe a little more than slightly) obsessed. I'm getting used to the keypad and using the different applications that came with it and those that I've added. It's a lot of fun. The only draw back is it cuts into my knitting time a little but then so does blogging.
Tomorrow is Mother's day and we're off to see my MIL. Can't wait for the day to be over. As I've said before it's not my favourite day of the year. However, Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there.
