Happy Earth day.
I’ve been a bad girl. In spite of all my resolutions, I cast on another bunny. O my bad. It’s an urge I just cannot control. Need. More. Bunnies. I even ordered about every yarn this company sells, just to make more bunnies:
The yarn is organic, which is right up my street. I’ve been looking into organically produced yarn lately; more and more companies are picking up on it. Good.
Anyhow. I haven’t been all bad – yesterday, I also took up my Hickory Dickory Dot again. I got stuck on knitting the hem of the back closed, which is a bit of a pain (in the backside, har har). Easy enough, but just… a pain. But hey, that back piece does need knitting as well. So that’s what I’m doing. Can’t have my poor girl running around in half a sweater.
Plus, I’ve been learning myself how to knit Continental style. I’m not fast yet, not by any means, but I am getting there. My knit and purl stitches are beginning to look decent. Hurray! To celebrate, I’ve ordered a few balls of dishcloth cotton over at Astrid’s Dutch Obsessions, because what better way to practice my new found abilities? Dish cloths! Never thought I’d be knitting those one day. To be fair – I’m also going to use it to knit my friend’s soon to be born little boy the Mason-Dixon kimono sweater wrap thingy.
So. Enough to do! Let’s work first.
