A little Knitting
It was a rare day today. I had to commute to the city for work for a training class. This meant that I would have time to knit on the train back and forth. I didn’t really have anything portable to take with me, so I grabbed a ball of Lollipop Yarns in Whisker Lickin’s
Two things I discovered:
- I absolutely don’t miss commuting for work.
- I absolutely miss my knitting time while commuting.
I truly love this yarn. I was able to get the toe done and start in on what I call my “vanilla” sock pattern of Monkey Socks by Cookie A (yes, I do them toe up). I’m using my Signature Circular Needles on a US 1 and I have to say that I love them. I will keep them my train project as I will be going on the train more often to go to the city or to the gym.
A Little Shopping
While in the city, I stopped into Sephora as I was in the mood for some new eye shadow. Here’s what I came up with. It’s a gorgeous palette and so my colors. I can’t wait to try it out!
A while back, I want on an accidental shopping spree at Wollmeise. I woke up early and happen to have caught an update. Two of the colors I was lusting after were available, Meilenstein and Mäuseschwänzchen. I got three skeins of each intending on knitting a shawl out of each colorway. When they arrived here, that thought went out the door. Take a look and you’ll see why.
Though they are two different colorways, they are so very close; so close that they can pass for the same. I decided that I need to find something I can knit with both colors in one project. I’m thinking this. What do you think?
