Some links of interest:
Has anyone been to Herrschner’s website? They have awesome yarn sales every week. Some of these yarns are ridiculously priced. For example: Debbie Bliss Cotton Angora for $2.97 (reg. $7.50). The shipping rates are typical ($4-up). If they had a free shipping deal after a certain amount (like Knitpicks) I would be in heaven. But you can sign up for email notices of their yarn sales, which change every week. I have noticed that some of the items sell out, so a heads up via email may be a good way to go if you like bargains.
Ferragamo, or rather “Fake-a-gamo”, bag. It’s a neat pattern inspired by a Saks “carry-all”. I think they were asking $1650 for it in the catalogue, but thanks to some Craftster-gals there is a knock-off pattern available and it’s free, free, free! *adds to knitlist*
Megan’s Counterpane/Coverlet Square. Been thinking about making a fancy blanket just for us (Mr.V suggested such after seeing the Mt.Laurel Blanket). This is a possibility. I like the idea of knitting smaller pieces and then sewing them together later. This would be a nice “off-and-on” project. You know, something to turn to when everything else is super boring.
I really need to stop tempting myself with all these projects. I already have enough on my plate at the moment with designing and knitting my own tank top and also designing and sewing my own sundress. BTW- I have finally decided on a sundress design so now I can start making the pattern. That’s what’s up for this weekend. I’m not sure what else I’ll be doing. It’s gonna be freaking hot this weekend: a good excuse to stay inside (with the a/c) and knit. I'll be sure to post some progress pics this weekend, too. Stay cool.
