It is a good thing that I don't drink, smoke or gamble, because if I did I would be in BIG BIG trouble. Instead my vices are yarn and thread and fabric, and right now I am soooo into this Lion Brand Amazing yarn. You can check it out here.
So last week I showed the Urban Lace Infinity Cowl I was blocking. The pattern is here on Ravelry and it is free. This colorway is called Mauna Loa.
I love that swath of coral on this side...
and the purples and blues on this side are pretty too.
And as soon as I had this one off the needles I cast on another one in the Wildflowers colorway. I blocked it last night.
This is one skein, 147 yards and there is no color repeat. It started with a coppery rust color, then went into green and grayish green and then into purple...
And the purple turned into a taupe and then it changed to gold and into a blue gray...
And then a mallard blue appeared and finally ended in a lovely shade of olive.
I can't wait for this to dry so I can kitchener it and wear it.
So I've made 3 of these cowls in the last 2 weeks, so what's on my needles now?
You guessed it, another Urban Lace Infinity Cowl this time using the Arcadia colorway. Its a good thing this stuff is legal - LOL!
And on a happy note today is my oldest son's birthday. He is 29 today and has been whining a bit about "how did I get to be this old?" Now as his mother, who was 32 when I gave birth to him I don't have much sympathy. Poor guy. I was making him a birthday card last night and looking about online for a nice sentiment to write inside. I thought about this one, "Every year you get older, I start feeling older. Maybe that’s because I am getting older too. Either way, I’m blaming you for making me feel old. Happy Birthday!" But instead I went with a nicer little message telling him how I hope the next year and his entire life is filled with good things. Such a good mom (I know I should be careful that I don't strain my arm patting myself on my back - LOL!) Okay, off to make birthday cupcakes!
