Stalled..

Last night, sometime between American Idol and Lost, I managed to finish the second side of the Brea Bag. I’m pretty pleased with the way they came out and am now anxious to make a push to the finish. Alas, 18 rows into the gusset I ran out of my Saddle Tan Nature Spun wool. What’s a girl to do? Well, the only thing an addicted knitter can do…click on over to Knitty and start these very cool Hedera socks. Speaking of Knitty, the new issue is out and as always, I am in awe of the talented people who come up with those beautiful patterns. It’s all I can do just to follow some of those patterns, let alone design them. As for the Brea, my LYS is open until 8pm tomorrow so I’ll be able to swing by on my way home from work to pick up another skein. Maybe I’ll have pictures of a completed Brea Bag by the end of the weekend.

In other project news…today I stopped at Lowes and brought home about a gazillion different paint swatches to decide between for the bedroom decorating project. I’m happy to be actually narrowing down paint colors (after 2 years of thinking about it) but a little nervous after reading about Yarn Harlot’s current home project. Her story is enough to make me think about it a little longer.

  1. Glad you included the link to Yarn Harlot. I can knit, but I’ve never painted before. I bought new wall paper for my bath then realized that I needed to paint the woodwork and ceiling before I hang paper. Ugh! I saw her trim job and realized I could paint before I remove the old wallpaper — that way I don’t have to be good with a brush. I’d rather knit though.
