the road to hell is paved with good intentions.... i think i'm a KAL flunkie. i seem to just gain and gain, barely losing grams, ounces, yards or meters ... or miles! what's a girl to do when someone tempts her with free yarn?!
any smart knitter would do as i did, ... snatch it up, and start knitting or crocheting it, use it up before anyone notices.
my weakness this time?
muench's string of pearls . 6 balls of worsted wt. red hot sizzling sparkling cotton, perfect for another chickami.
i cast on last night, and am almost finished with ball #2. it should only take 5 balls + a smidge of #6.
i also ended up with about 10-12 cakes of classic elite's rockland cotton. this is an aran wt. cotton, each cake has about 173 yds. i think i'm going to use it for making washcoths, dishcloths, chickens and such. i contemplated crocheting it for a lap blanket, but ... it would be so heavy!
icarus is still on the needles. i am actually on chart 4! i don't see finishing this anytime soon though, as each row takes a ridiculous amount of time, and i'm paranoid of making a mistake. .... since i'm too stubborn to use a lifeline. lifelines are for sissys!
