I got my invitation to join the Beta version of Ravelry yesterday! Yay! It’s so awesome. If you don’t know what Ravelry is (where have you been?), go check it out. Seriously. And sign up, you’ll be glad you did! Any of you out there on Ravelry wanna be my friend? Look me up, my username is KaityBeth.
I’m entering a contest from Lotus Knits, and I have to post either my first knitted thing or my next project I’ll be working on. Seeing as I don’t have a picture of my first knitted thing (I don’t even remember what It was), we’ll go with what’s coming up next:
I finally got the yarn to start that Fair Isle hat for my sister. I would have already cast on for it, but I can’t find those darn needles…
And I went shopping with my cousin yesterday at a Thrift store. I was looking for a sweater to recycle the yarn from (That didn’t turn out so well…) but I found a bag of yarn for $4.95. I couldn’t unzip the bag to feel it or anything, but I bought it anyway. Well, I got it home and it revealed this:
11 skeins of something. I had no idea what it was. It kind of felt like wool, but there was no label or anything. Just 11 skeins for something (I threw that DPN on top of the pile for size reference)
Than I thought about trying to dye it, so see if It was wool or something:
Well, it took the Kool-aid like a pro:
Well people, I’ve got wool on my hands. I measured out about 280 yards in a skein, times 11, thats 3080 yards. Wow. All that for $4.95? Thank you thrift store!
Now. What the heck am I gonna do with this? It’s kind of a sport weight. I’d like to make a Thermal from Knitty, but that would take me a lifetime! Hmm, I dunno.
