First, it was the Branching Leaves Scarf that I saw on Ravelry. There was just something about it that called to me. I had no idea what yarn to use on it- it's been a while. I'm a little rusty. So, I started with a green Simply Soft that I've had forever.
|Green Leaves- how original|
|Silver Leaves- goes well with my colorful personality, no?|
|Sllllooooowly geting there....|
Once I scored a fix (or two), I went back to my frenzied ways and started another shawl in the Feather and Fan pattern. It's going to be slightly different than my L.A.D.Y. Stole of Transformation.....that is if I ever get it done.
|I want. I need. I may frog.|
There. I said it. I'm making this for myself (which means it most likely won't get done) and really love the color and it is really soft. But.......I want the Loreal yarn! I'm worth it darn it! I've been eying the Melody yarn I scored at Eleganza for this....but.....I don't know. So, until I decide whether or not to treat myself to beautiful, soft, gorgeous wool I have, this is going on the back burner.
As I mentioned yesterday, I started using the Noro right off the bat by starting a Half Granny Shawl.
|Wool. And lots of color. GIVE IT TO ME NOW!|
In the mean time, I've been on a designing frenzy, too. First up is a little something for me- a MESSENGER BAG!! Finally! I'm thinking of using the Kaleidoscope for (parts of) it. I used my new colorful pens and my new graph paper notebook to plan this project. Yes, I knew you'd be impressed. However, I'm not able to start it quite yet. I need a specific red color- I'm pretty sure I'm going to use Patons SWS for it, but I don't have that specific color in my ever expanding stash, which means I need to buy more wool. Oh darn.
I've been drooling over a vision of a bag that I've had in my mind's eye for quite a while. I've just not tried the concept I have for the shape of it yet. So, I got some Vanna's Choice (acrylic- ptew!) and got cranking.
|Looks nothing like the finished bag|
There are a couple other bags I'm designing, too, but I'm really trying to be a little more focused so that I can hopefully actually FINISH a project. Sheesh. Does anyone know if there a wool based Ritalin or something? Because I really do need to- Oh look! More wool!
