It's WIP Wednesday and what a wonderful Wednesday it is! The sun is shining outside my window, but it is not too hot.
I have lots keeping me busy in the studio today. I like calling my sewing room a studio...because, really, it is more than just a sewing room. And, while I am not the most artistic or original or talented person out there...it is where I create...
There are tons of babies being born in this world every single day...and I seem to know most of them. I thought some burp pads would be in order:
I moved my operation from the kitchen to the studio, because the light is better in there...and technically, I am creating...so, what better place?
Isn't the stack cute? There's also a pair of white jeans under there that I need to hem...
On the knitting front, I don't think these socks have really moved much since last Wednesday:
...nor have these:
I did a little on My Tarty Scarf:
I have been knitting, honest. Look! This cardi has progressed:
Remember when I bought this yarn:
and this yarn?
And remember when I discussed that I needed another one of the Oceana to make the shawl in TML or two in MCN Fingering, because the Carnivale is an MCN base? While I was in Fort Worth last week, I went by Madtosh. They only had Oceana on Sock, Chunky and a couple of other bases that were not appropriate. We looked on the Madelinetosh site - no dice. The Loopy Ewe and Jimmy Beans Wool didn't have any either - and since these are retail establishments, all I would be getting is the TML. MCN is still in R&D phase. Finally, we found some at Purl SoHo. I ordered two skeins, in case there was a color variation with the one I have. They came yesterday:
There was no color variation, but that's okay, because I already have a project in mind for the other skein.
While I was waiting for my order, the Madelinetosh shop (not to be confused with Madtosh - because while they may be two wholly owned subsidiaries of the same company - they are separate entities) got some MCN Fingering in the warehouse and they dyed up some Oceana.
Guess what I did? Yep, I bought two skeins of Oceana on MCN Fingering. I kind of wanted to keep the bases in the same family for this shawl - The Lazy Girl - and now I will have more Oceana on TML than I ever thought I would. One skein is taken, remember, but if you have any suggestions for the other two, please send them on.
Did y'all notice that there's a project missing?
