I'm in Trouble Now!
I'm so delighted to join this group. As I told Barb, how can I pass up the chance to chat about knitting and ogle pictures of gorgeous men? My name is Cindi Myers and I write romance and women's fiction. I'm also a craft-a-holic -- I quilt, play with beaded jewelry -- and knit.
Which is where the trouble comes in. I logged on to this blog day before yesterday and started reading through posts and was immediately seized with a desire to knit everything! I want to make spiral socks. And dish rags. I have patterns for both. So much yarn -- so little time.
I live in the mountains southwest of Denver and we're making a trip into the big city this weekend. I've already warned my hubby this will include a trip to my favorite yarn shop. I can hardly wait!
As to my current project, I'm knitting the second sock of a pair started last spring. The weather has turned cool enough to inspire me to want to handle wool yarn again. I love socks. I felt so accomplished when I finally mastered working with double pointed needles. Please tell me I am not the only person who buys shoes specifically to show off my socks. I just bought a lovely pair of leather clogs for winter, to wear with my large collection of colorful wool socks.
I end this first post with a request. Has anyone ever knitted a doggie sweater? Do you know where I can find a good pattern? I have a little beagle mix who actually loves wearing sweaters in the winter. The one he has now was a gift from my mother-in-law and it's pink. A little girlie for a masculine dog like him. So help me out here and point me toward a good pattern.
And thanks for letting me join the party!
