MsKnitaholic's InfiKnit Adventures

Welcome to my wonderful world of knitting. I am a beginning knitter who just started a couple of months ago. This is a place for me to keep track of projects, post patterns, etc.

Candace and I made our weekly pilgrimage for yarn porn again. This time we checked out Needleworks in Newington. What a great little store. I oohed and aahed over much yarn. If anyone is looking for Noro Kureyon, they have TONS. Which is comical because when I was in The Wool Connection last week, they were totally out. I think it might be due to the fact that the Wool Connection makes kits with a lot of their more popular yarns. Candace actually made her booga bag with Lion Brand Landscapes yarn. I love the way her bag looks and the yarn is a bit thicker than the Kureyon. It also felted nicely. So, you definitely don't have to buy the exact yarn they suggest in the pattern.

My loot today consisted of some Cascadia yarn to make my sophie bag, some Ice Palace chunky yarn to make a different bag (not sure how many of these bags I need), some 10.5 16" addi Turbo needles and the 365 Day Stitch Calendar. I know a couple of people highly recommended this calendar.

My currently project is a small pouch. I will take pics after I'm done. Tonight I've learned many new things. How to increase, knit two together, make an eyelet and yarn over. That's a lot for my poor little head in one day. Now I'm ready to drop from sheer exhaustion.

Yarn porn makes me tired.
