If you didn't know, I recently put up a few tutorials on the blog:
Pom Poms with a pom pom maker, and Pom Poms without a pom pom maker (make your own as opposed to buying one)
Making Beaded Tassels
All of the magazines I show you have a link up in the Magazine Tab at the top of the blog, if you are interested in subscribing or buying single issues, both current and back issues.
Today is the last day for the Interweave Hurt Book Sale. I got some great deals on a few books, and none of them were hurt in any way. Not that I would mind if they were a bit hurt, it's going to happen any how :0) If you miss the sale this time around, I am sure they will do it again next year. It really is a chance to get amazing deals on a lot of different books - ebooks are available also!
I grabbed four hanks of Madelinetosh Tosh Merino DK Onsies from Jimmy Beans. I got two each of Dusk and Rose. I plan to use these for a top down shawl. I love Madelinetosh yarn! Nice and soft and very easy to work with, and it has great stitch definition. I used Madelinetosh yarn in my Star Struck Hat pattern that was part of the tutorial on converting stitch patterns to use in the round.
And, from one of, if not THE best online yarn shop, Knitty Noddy, I got the new addi Long Tip Lace Clicks, along with some Hand Maiden Silk Maiden yarn. A yummy blend of 50/50 silk and wool. Very nice and soft, and the colors are beautiful.
And the projects I am working on - two wraps. One is done in the scribble lace or scribble knitting technique, and the other is an entrelac wrap. So, tutorials on both and free patterns. Those will be up as soon as I finish knitting. Close to being done on both!
I think that about covers it. Until next time, Happy Knitting!
