What's Next...
Tuesday, November 22, 2005

I want to order some yarn from KnitPicks, but I don't know what to get. I'm thinking of making this sleeveless sweater from Vogue Knitting Holiday'05. As I have stated, it has no sleeves, which should make it go a little quicker. I'm thinking of using KnitPicks Shine. I also want to get some Twirl in Grass, to make I don't know what, probably a scarf. I just dig the color.

I finished my Christmas bags. I'll probably make a few more, for my mom. I bought two pounds of lavender to stuff them with, not knowing how much two pounds of lavender actually is. I might get some fancy candles to put in with the sachets, just to make it more of a "gift experience". Last year I made washcloths from Crystal Palace Cotton Chenille and wrapped them up with fancy soaps. Those went over well. I should check out the candle selection at Target the next time I go.

That's a great sweater. I used KnitPicks Shine for a sleeveless sweater this summer. I loved knitting with it, but I haven't finished yet so I don't know how it wears. Very soft though.

Wow, that's pretty! Shine is good yarn, beautiful colours and lovely to knit with but it's cotton so it's real heavy (I don't know enough about garment construction to know if that's a good thing for this piece or not). It is super soft.

Yankee candles are always great, but I'll tell you, I love love love Trapp...but they're pricey, about $3.50 for a votive. But they smell so good...

Jen,

I'm sure cotton would be good for a little sweater like that. No sleeves! :^) They discontinued one of my favorite cotton blend yarns: Cotton-Ease by Lionbrand. I made a great sweater with that stuff and it's so light and airy. I have to post pictures of it.

I'm looking at the Trapp candles website, the scents look so appetizing! I'm not going to buy that many of them, so maybe I'll get everyone one of the cheapy boxed votives.

Cottage46,

I see you're knitting the must have cardigan. Isn't it great? I had a good time with that one. I like the color you picked. Very cheerful!

Hey, the Orange-Vanilla Trapp candles are transcendent.

Happy Thanksgiving! (I'm bored at work and surfing around again.)

I love that sleeveless sweater! Shine is the only KnitPicks yarn that I found to be satisfactory. The colors are a bit on the crayon side, so you might want to get a color card before ordering a large qty. for a project. The one ball I tried out had some weird slubs and knots, but it was otherwise ok.
