This was a quick knit on Sunday. I used the leftover Blackberry Patch Alpaca, and I think I still have some left. Hrm. Cat toys? Who knows! Anyway, this is going to be nice for winter. The alpaca is warm, but a bit scratchy. Nothing too horrible, but it will keep my ears a bit warmer. The pattern was easy as pie.

Lemongrass Bolero

I think I will get a lot of use out of this kimono like cardigan. The Plymouth Sunsette is really soft, but I was really afraid of running out of yarn, so I did stop the length a bit. I put it through the washer and dryer and it looks pretty good. This will be great for the summer since I'm always cold!

Oh wow. I'm such a slacker. Obviously. I don't know how I've been feeling about knitting lately, so I haven't had much to talk about. Don't get me wrong, I'm not about to quit or anything. This has been a very long standing hobby. I think it is coming close to my herbalism hobby I had growing up. Sidenote: you would think that this hobby would bloom now that I have a yard and garden space, man, I'm such a slacker.

So back to knitting. I like it. I especially like it socially. I really have a good time knitting on Sundays with the knitters. However, I don't feel inspired to knit at home. It could be I have too many distractions. Like video games, tv, dvds, and even baking. I do like knitting though. Really!

In knitting news, I should be done my bolero by the end of the week. It looks to be very wearable. It is taking a lot more yarn than advertised though! Stay tuned for photos!
