A little bit of this & a little bit of that

I was almost done with the back of Beau. Got to the neck shaping part and somehow thought that I messed it up so I frogged back 7 rows only to realise later that I was right before. Oh well, all that frogging for nothing. Anyway, I finished the back of Beau and is already knitting on one of the sleeves.

The weather here has turned really warm and knitting it is not as enjoyable as before. I can only knit this in the evening when it's cooler but then the color is so dark that it's a bit tough to knit it with limited light as well. It's a no-win situation. But the forecast predicts that the weather would be much cooler this coming week and perhaps I will be able to finish up both sleeves during that time. I am on a roll, baby!

And this is how far along I am with Orangina. Looking good so far. When it gets too warm or too dark for Beau, I switched over to Orangina which is why it's going much slower than Beau. I am eager to finish up Beau asap cos I want to start on the Indigo Ripples skirt soon. I really love how Eunny's turned out. The yarn I am planning to use is also dark and I think I can only handle one dark project at a time.

I got these 3 books recently and I loved all 3 of them. There is so many patterns in each of them that I want to knit. And the best part is, I have yarns for all the patterns that I want to make. I think I have way too much yarns... :P

In my last post, I mentioned about pink and red being my current favourite colors. So here's a pic of the yarns that I had bought since I arrived in Germany that are in that color theme. From the left to right, 1 skein of handdyed YarnPirate Sock yarns in Neopolitan, 2 skeins of 2 ply silk & wool from The Knittery in Roses and 6 balls of Rowan Cotton Glace in Sh822 which is currently being made into Orangina.

I am thinking of knitting up the Flower Basket Shawl out of the 2 skeins of 2 Ply silk and wool. It would look great with the halter sundress that I have in my wardrobe! Hehe. Oh well, too many Knits-in-progress so I will have to finish a few more knits before I start on more.

Oh, I just love the stitch pattern in Orangina. (Though I admit that I keep thinking the name should be changed since it's in pink. Maybe Pink Lemonadina? :^)

The new yarns are beautiful. I love that 2-ply silk/wool, it'll be a gorgeous Flower Basket Shawl, do you think you'll cast on soon?

You really are on a pink/red roll!
Love the The Knittery stuff. It would make a beautiful shawl.

Beau is almost there. Don't give up!
