The Yarn Harlot came to Portland! So my neighbor Tracy and I had to drive up there to see her. She didn’t disappoint, it was so fun, and funny! Afterwards I waited to have her sign her new book, and give her a ribbon jar.
While listening to her of course everyone was knitting. I worked on these:
(free pattern) The fist one is so tiny. But luckily there was a newborn a few rows ahead that I could check it on. There were lots of babies decked out in hand knits, sooo cute.
I also picked up this special edition Socks that Rock yarn. I’m thinking cute sleeveless top for summer? Maybe sort of tunic style with a couple cables up the sides? I need to figure out decreases and stuff so it has darts and doesn’t look like a shapeless thing, but I think I’m up to the challenge.
More scrapbooking coming soon. My step-mom let me borrow her cricut!
