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.

I decided to take a break from knitting the stupid baby blanket this weekend. I needed a fun and quick project to kickstart my knitting momentum! (Do people actually have knitting momentum?) Sometimes when I'm working on a large project, I need to take a break because it becomes monotonous. Anyway, I made one of the dishcloths from HGTV yesterday. I made it with Sugar 'n Cream yarn in potpourri. It's going into my stash of Christmas gifts.

Yesterday, Candace and I went yarn trolling. We visited Yarns Down Under in Deep River. What a great little store. We really enjoyed it there. We also hit Country Yarns in Wallingford (eh-ok) and Needleworks in Newington. I've been to Needleworks before, but I was less enchanted with it this time around.

I went to buy yarn for the tasha bag, but I wasn't paying attention and bought Cascade 220 because I though the pattern called for 100% wool yarn (duh.. not being felted), but it really requires 100% cotton. I guess I'm going to have to figure out what to do with two extra skeins of Cascade 220 in a cool pink.. this should be hard. *eyeroll*

In unrelated to knitting news, my air conditioner died this morning. Hubby and I trucked all over the state to find a new air conditioner to our liking. We finally settled on a Samsung model from Best Buy. We got it in the house, got the old one out and proceeded to try and get this thing installed. The shutter guards were too small and when we called customer service, we received a lot of disservice.. so, I am taking Candace with me tomorrow to return the blasted thing. I swear, I must have bad consumer karma. Everytime we buy something for our house, it's missing a piece, something is broken or it just doesn't work right. I think I need a vacation!

I love that dishcloth and it's JUST the thing for getting back into the groove because you can start and finish one relatively quickly.

I thought we were the only ones who had parts missing, broken or other things went wrong when we bought something. Gosh, everything!
