It's like a knitting library in here!

Well there have been some awesome knitty acquisitions in the last few days.

First, I was gifted this by the kids I babysit (Peter, Lily and Jenna):I had not seen this book before, but I am glad that I have it! There are lots of babies arriving soon and my friends are definitely starting to be in that "baby making" phase, so this is an excellent book for me. There is a ton of cute stuff to knit in it!

Then, I scored an Amazon gift certificate, which I promptly spent on this:I have been dying for Lace Style for quite some time and Fitted Knits was high on my list too. I never really thought I would want to knit mittens like in Folk Mittens, but since I have been working on the Bird in Hand mittens, that has changed. Bring on the Fair Isle, baby!

Other than that, things are good. I am pretty tired today, as work has been super nuts the last couple days. But, tonight there will be much knitting and, um, American Idol!!!! Hooray! My 2nd favorite show is back on TV! (The Office being my first favorite). Tomorrow I plan to dye a crap ton of yarn, and then on Thursday I am going to go knit with my knitting group. Friday I am taking off to Iowa for a weekend of fun with my brother in fabulous Waterloo!

There is still time to get on some blog contest fun here at Knitting Like Crazy! I am giving away two prizes (yummy hand-dyed prizes!). Check out the details here.

Happy Knitting!

  1. I admire your fortitude when it comes to Fair Isle and stranded color knitting. Beautiful stuff but way too coordinated for my little fingers.

  2. Stranded color knitting is the MOST wonderful knitting in the world. Next in line is lace knitting!

    What are you going to make out of Fitted knits? I own it too, and am thinking. Only thinking, but that's better than nothing.

    Enjoy your Iowa trip.

  3. Great books! Do you think the kids you babysit for want you to knit them toys? ;)
    Have a great weekend!

  4. Fitted Knits rocks! I made the Bolero style one and the Carie cardigan, and they are both so bulky they were done in a matter of hours. You can't compete with instant gratification, especially in sweater form. There are some other awesome things in there I haven't gotten to yet. Two things out of one book is pretty good for me.
