The yarn shop called and my yarn finally came in! Who knew it would take a month and a half to get some Cascade 220? I’m going to pick it up tomorrow night. The yarn shop has banker’s hours (they close at 5:30 most nights and aren’t open on Sunday)! Of course I won’t be able to start the project right away and Greg is going to give me a hard time for buying more yarn and I probably don’t need another poncho anyway. But, at least I’ll be using a gift certificate and I have a project in mind.

I really want to learn to do lace. There are some beautiful shawls out there that I want to do. I need to find a good beginner pattern. Preferably something smaller, that didn’t take a lot of yarn. I’ve seen patterns that took 1000 yds. Although Knit Picks does have the right yarn for under $4 a skein.

Anyway, I shouldn’t be thinking about new projects. I have plenty of in progress projects to think about.

Last night I discovered that my mom’s sweater is now covered in a fine layer of dust. Greg sanded the wood floors and for some reason, I didn’t think it would be that dusty. I should have covered everything! There is a fine layer of dust everywhere. And it’s not the easy to clean dust either. Hey! Some dust is easier to clean then others! This is like the drywall dust.

Hi there... Last Minute Knitted Gifts has a little scarf that's lace, it's supposed to be a good intro and doesn't use much yarn. I want to try lace too, and I bought yarn from Knitpicks.com for it -- one hank of their Shimmer or Alpaca clous is only about $4 and contains enough yarn for the pattern. Good luck with whatever lace pattern you try out!

I've done the "Airy Scarf" from Last Minute Knitted Gifts and really liked it. I guess I'm looking for something a little harder. I've been thinking about ordering from knit picks. I'd like to get one of each of their yarns to experiment with. :)
