Back and sad
I am back from vacation, it was too short as usual...... But I did get some things done! I think I have "ADD" with my knitting, I always start stuff and start other stuff and start more stuff.
I have jumped on the band wagon and wanted to make my own crocheted shawl.
This is what it is supposed to look like
Very retro, I know. Love Retro. However, this is what I ended up with
Doesn't it look like underware? I HATE this! I will have to rip it out and try something else.
I did hit the yarn store sale on Friday, I, like a dummy, forgot my "additional 10% off" postcard, so I only got 20% off. But I had a gift certificate to spend and I bought this
I bought the Noro "Iro" yarn, wicked expensive, but I am making this
I love this thing. It is really cool, and easy and quick. I have knitted more on this already. I bought sock yarn, Rowan cotton tape (for another hat) and I always hit the sale bin. It is Classic Elite cotton. I guess I didn't mention where I went on my vacation, we really just stuck around town a bit. We did spend 2 days in Old Forge New York. We hit Enchanted Forest (it's a waterpark-nobody needs to see me in a bathing suit) and they have this great store called Old Forge Hardware. It is this massive store that has everything. On a whim, I asked the clerk if they sold yarn. Well, you better believe they sold yarn! It was a great little corner of the store, and they had a great selection. I didn't buy any yarn, because I knew I would at the above mentioned sale. I did buy the 2 books at the top at Old Forge Hardware. One of the books is a Noro book with the scarf pattern in it. I love this book. The other is a small pattern book with sweater patterns to knit from the top down.
I will leave you with this today, Don't want to over load. I took other pictures I will post later in the week.

You have ADD about almost everything.

nice haul - glad vacation was good!
I've wanted to knit that scarf for a while. So much knitting, so little time.
