New projects--finished!

I'll have patterns available at our October Knit-Knite for those who are interested! Both projects were quick and were great for using leftover yarn! I think I'm going to start including the dog with baby booties and layette sets. Too cute! The clutch purse was fun. . .but next time I don't know that I would use mohair. I'll need something a bit stiffer! :o)

My goal for January, 2012. . .

Just to attend the beginner classes I need to know how to cable, use double-pointed needles, and do a few more things I've not tried yet. So, instead of trying to learn it all in four months, I've decided to save up and learn how to do all this by the next year's event!

I'm so excited!!

Hometown USA yarn. . .found it!!

I've been ordering it online or getting it @ Ben Franklin Crafts in Springfield. Well, tonight I stopped at Fred Meyer in Keizer/Salem off the Parkway and stumbled into a YARN SECTION!!! They have a small, but good selection--and ALL of the Hometown USA colors!! They are on sale for $3.49/skein until Aug. 14th!! I picked up Oakland Black. I'm hoping to get a few more before the sale ends!!
