I never should have signed up for Ravelry. Hah! If you have ever knitted and want to be bitten by the knitting bug again, Ravelry is the place to be. I have spent way to many hours there lately, looking at some yarn goodness, patterns, needles etc. Oh I love it!
I have been decided that my next knitting project will be this cape.
I love everything about it. It is just oh so me! It has my name written all over it! The only thing I do not like about the original is the color, if I dress in a color like that I look dead. Seriously. I need strong colors for my skin, hair and eye color. So today I went to a local knitting store, Nálin, to pick up yarn for it. The pattern is free if you buy the yarn there. Now, they have great selection of yarn but are a little pricey. I love the yarn I picked out, even though it was pricey. Very pricey. Oh well, it is not like I am stocking up on yarn (yet!!).
See! Much better color for me. I am so in love with it! I think it is going to be so pretty when finished and I can’t wait to start. The only problem is the pattern. It is in Danish, and I am not very good at reading and understanding Danish. I will manage though. Google is my friend and I know plenty of knitters that read patterns in Danish and whatever language. So I will be ok with the help of my knitting friends. Now, I think I am going to cast on and get started. Oh yes I am!
