We went to Vancouver, BC, recently and I went to Urban Yarns, a very cute little shop and bought this:
I'm actually working on a blanket though. I have a high failure rate on large projects, but I'm really trying on this one. I started off striping with complete randomness, but as I arranged the balls of yarn I found I really liked the progression of similar colors. I'm much happier with the new striping, but I'm not about to redo the old...
This will be for my girl, I think. It's definitely on the girly side. And it's going to have an excellent story behind it..."See this tight part? That's when my mom worked on it during my first week of school!" Yes. My tension created a much tighter tension. So I have a tight, though beautiful, section of stripes that cause the first section of stripes to ruffle a bit. (No, I'm not going to show you.) But you know what? I'm not fixing it! Not only would that not be my style, but it really is a cute story. Now if only I could stop gritting my teeth... :D
|I rather like the ends. Maybe I'll do a fringe...|
