I was sitting outside at the time enjoying a few hours of sun yesterday morning. In fact I was hiding out in front of the shed by the vegetable patch, escaping from the family and enjoying some long awaited sun and a bit of peace and quiet. I was also pleased with myself for weaving in the ends of the two balls of yarn once I'd joined them. As I started the decreasing, I managed to weave those ends in along the back at the same time so I won't have to get out the needle and thread when the whole project is finished.
I'm also excited because my order from Knitpicks arrived on Saturday. This is the first time I've ordered yarn from them, in fact this whole thing is quite a journey for me as I'm getting to know a lot of new yarns. It would seem that different places have different yarns, so every time I move to a new country, I have a new lot of yarn to get to know. Things are changing though, thanks to the internet. With online purchasing, the market is becoming more global, which is wonderfully exciting as yarns become available to a wider audience.
To top off my weekend, I met up with fellow knitters on Saturday to mark World Wide Knit in Public day. The weather was kind to us and we had a great time chatting and knitting. On the strength of a tip, I then headed off to try to find a LYS that was closing and had a 45% sale on. Picked up some di.Ve and some Heirloom and some more beads. I could have stayed there all day.
