Blue Fluff

flufConfession time: I added to the stash on Saturday, and left the Wee One unattended in the car while doing so. Please don't anyone report me to Social Services. It wasn't hot outside, but pouring rain, and she was engrossed by her Leap Frog Phonics Library (the one I only ever hear saying Press a letter to play music until I want to throw it out the window) and preferred to wait in comfort. Turns out Lettuce Knit was mobbed due to their sale, so I felt she was actually better off away from the crowd. Still, a little maternal guilt drove me to add two hanks of fluffy stuff to my basket, which I soon used to whip up this little scarf. I could've done with just one, but instead I made a longer scarf for her summer mate Gillian, 8, and a tiny one for not-yet-two Allie. If only I'd had the camera on Monday, which was distribution day . . .

My Rowan 36 arrived Tuesday at last. Dare I say there's nothing I must knit and now? I'm not sorry I joined, by any means ~ even though I didn't dig the Linen Drape placemat kit. I do love some of the patterns, like Lisette, but I know I'll never attempt such a small-gauge project any time soon ~ or fair isle, or intarsia. I like the Plaid knits, but not as much as the Tidal Wave Turtleneck I've already got in the queue. I love the delicate Karis poncho, but with Charlotte on the needles and a poncho in the works, I don't see myself seeking out Kidsilk Haze ~

We made it to the Knitting Meet-Up again last night, and there was L-B! This time she had her Klaralund WIP with her, and she's chosen a beautiful Silk Garden shade. Will I join that knit-along? I think it's likely!
