It's been 7 whole days since I've been with my babies and I'm missing them so much. This is the longest time I've been away from them. I really miss the constant chatter, the funny things they say, the singing, the mess, even the whingeing and crying! MISS THEM!!!! Can't wait to get back on Sunday.
I thought I'd keep busy to keep my mind off things. So here's what I made in a few hours. A little halter top for Keira. It's knitted in Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece in a gorgeous baby pink shade called Pink-a-boo. Hmm the photo is not doing it justice. I'll get Keira to pose in it when I get back. Anyway, the pattern is from Barefoot Knits, a gorgeous book for kiddy knits using Cotton Fleece. I'm going to make a pair of matching shorts. But I must go back to the yarn store in Denver to purchase more Cotton Fleece. The yarn is lovely to knit with, but it has a tendency to get a bit splitty if you frog and reknit. The colour palette is extensive and the cost is very reasonable.
Next up, I managed to find another yarn store in Minturn, near Vail. It's called The Yarn Studio and it's owned by Kathy, the most friendly owner with the cutest dogs. It's a treasure trove of books,patterns and yarn!! I was very well restraint and only bought a few magazines (old Interweave knits and Vogue Knitting) and then I found the pattern for Charlotte's Web. I knew I wanted to make that. So before I knew it, there I was choosing all the different Koigu on display. This is what I chose, but I'm not sure if this is my final decision. Let's wait and see.
