Much to do, take care.

I wasn't happy with the border of the dress so I decided to make a seed stitch edge instead. I will also be changing the edge on the neckline and arms to seed stitch. I still haven't found ribbon to put in the eyelet holes but I'm not worried about that right now. I just want to complete this little dress. It is one of the main reasons I purchased that book. Stay tuned for updates and photos.
Personal Deadline to Complete: Friday, August 10, 2007

I won an eBay auction for some 32" bamboo circular needles about a week ago, but after knitting with them for 2 days the tubing on the end broke. I am in the process of getting my money back for that purchase. Well, I was cleaning out my purse and I found a 50% off coupon for Joann's but it was an in store coupon only. I told my husband I would be back and I was off on my hunt.
I went to Joann's with my coupon in hand, but when I got there they did not have a circular set. I was not going back home without my needles! So, I drove over to A. C. Moore Crafts and they did have the set for $69.99. Well, that was not an issue for me because I knew A. C. Moore accepted their competitor's coupons. Long story short, I decided to purchase the Boye's Needlemaster Interchangeable Needle Set and I got it half off. I am happy with my purchase and my knitting can continue.

Well, the UPS delivery man just left and I have something new to add to my yarn stash. I have been looking forward to my arrival of this wonderful yarn. A local craft store here in town carried this yarn last fall and I fell in love with it! But I just could not afford enough to make a sweater. It was going for $6.99 per skein. Well as you can see I have several skeins now --30 in total.I purchased this yarn from Little Knits online. It is called Peru Luxury DK and it is made of 70% Merino, 20% Alpaca and 10% Silk. It has 124 yards/50 gram skein and knits at 5.5 stitches/ inch on US size 6 needles. I ordered the Beige with a hint of Khaki, the Imperial Purple, and the Peruvian Skies. A 10 count bag was only $25.75 or you can buy it by the skein for $2.99. Believe me, you are getting an amazing value if you just buy it by the bag. It is super soft and has beautiful stitch definition. It is so worth it's price and worth the small wait for it to arrive.
