I am still working on my test knit for the doily
....more than half way finished on that one. Yay. It's so much fun to knit up. I can't post anything yet, but after it's published I will show you all then. The designer is awesome. I love her patterns. Nope, can't even give that info out either.
I started a crochet test cowl today. I am using the Vanna Style yarn from Lion Brand. It's a size 3 so it's not as heavy as the normal worsted weight 4. It's super soft and yummy to work with. Sadly, I only bought four skeins....of which no two are the same....yeah, isn't that always the crazy butt stuff that I do....I know...I know. :)
Has anyone else gotten on the Lion Brand Mandala Yarn craze. Apparently, it's one of those balls of yarn with all kinds of colors in it and it's all the rage. Wal mart is suppose to have it, not mine of course. All my Wal mart seems to have are unattended children that run around the aisles screaming at the top of their lungs, but I digress. By the time I stagger towards the yarn section in the store with a headache the size of Texas (you know from all those unattended children screaming) I find a few skeins of Red Heart and Simply Soft that appear to have been, I am just guessing, unwilling participants in one of those unattended children's rampages through the store...just saying. I never find any yarn worth having at my Wal mart anymore. Why?
Let me know if any of you find Mandala yarn out there and if you have used it. I want to know what you think about it. Is it good for crochet or knit, or both.
So what is on your needles/hooks today? Starting any new projects?
I hope you all have a most lovely day sweet friends. :)
