A Reasonable Explanation

Y halo thar, guyfs!

I am bad at posting. So here are the two things that are just mega:

ONE: I got my first SP10 package, and my SP is AWESOME!!!

What you see here are a very sweet card, two skeins of Patton's SWS in Natural Earth, One Skein, a ridiculously funny bunny-stacking game, a candle, a row counter, a tape measure, assorted stamps, a cute spool of ribbon, place markers (green and purple! eee!), two Easter Egg ornaments,a pile 'o choco eggs, a choco bunny and lots of plastic eggs, which hid most of the choco eggs. I am eating some of the chocolates as I write this. Uhlissa and I have been going through One Skein, trying to decide what to make. I'm wobbling between trying to figure out crochet to make one of the purses, and the Cable Footies. Hurrah! A start to my knitting book library!

TWO: I'm halfway done with the Clementine Shawlette! Knitpicks Shine Sport is amazing to work with, very smooth and pleasant. Since, as mentioned before, I have gross sweaty hands everyone once in a while I have to take a break and let it cool down a little, or else it starts to get a little resistant to knitting.

Clementine ShawletteThis was before I finished the first half. Two skeins of yarn per half, it seems. So I was right on the money with 4 skeins.

A closer look at the stitch pattern. The second photo washes out the blue, which is deeper. The first photo is a better. It's a quite fun and easy pattern, I'd recommend picking up Interweave Knits just for it!

Have a Happy Easter, everyone!

PS Here I am being a turtle on Uhlissa's bed. TURTLE!!

So glad you got and enjoyed the package! I had fun putting it together... the one with the Mickey ears was purchased for you in Disney World!
