though i don't knit for kids (i'm a very selfish knitter), i do love the designs, motif charts, and the combination of knitting mixed with illustrations. the book features some critters to knit too.
i had also seen in the jo-ann sales flyer that they sell wool-ease thick & quick. this is the yarn glampyre is using for her latest design, the bulky green cabled cardigan. so, for around $20, i can have a quick knit sweater too!
i didn't have the intention of getting green, as i really do like the spice color. besides, i think green is my favorite color. (maybe, if i like this yarn, and i knit the sweater quickly, and the sale is still going on, and they still have the spice, and ....)
due to my knitting attention span, i've slowed down on my beautiful backyards leaves scarf. i did finish the first half though! i do like how the ends split for the two leaves, and i don't understand why that isn't photographed in the book --- as much as i love _scarf style_, i sure don't like their photography.
what do i need to do? i need to cast on for my sock #2, and cast on for my second scarf 1/2, ... but i want to play with my new stuff!
oh, and on what did i use my 50% a.c. moore coupon? perhaps it was this? yes, i could had bought _wrap style_, but i'm not a poncho girl.
