With the gift certificate Frost gave me to use at the Purple Purl for christmas, I finally managed to pick a yarn to make the infamous Central Park Hoodie. This is Galway Heather wool in a lovely shade of green.
Not that it will be on the needles just yet. I have a few knitted projects I am working on at home in my down time away from the dress just to keep me from going bonkers.
Current works on the knitting needles include,
A baby blanket for friends in the UK who had a baby girl at the beginning of December, which is also a stash busting project.
and a secret project, that was working out okay to begin with, but I am not 100% happy with how it's starting to pan out and may have to rip it back. Something I don't really want to do. Of course, since it's a secret, I can't show you photos until it's revealed to it's intended.
As for the dress, work is progressing well. I did a bit of a cock up on Sunday, but ripped back to the mistake instead of trying to fix the mistake and having it snowball. I had to rip out a row and a half, probably 4 to 5 hours worth of work, but I am okay with that. The wedding is at the end of August. It's not like it's in the next couple of months. I have plenty of time for these "learning curves".
