First purchase....

As promised! This was my first purchase last Saturday. On Friday I had received the Spring Interweave in the mail. I have been wanting to make a market bag for a very long time. The Chevron Market Bag is just to cute for me to pass up.

I have been wanting to use Hempathy for a long time. As I stood in front of the display this tweed orange spoke to me. So it shall be a market bag.

Swirl Shawl

Hung out at The Yarn Shop yesterday for a bit. Now I will tell you I had already made my first purchase of the day before falling into this one. I will share more about that first purchase later.

I was sitting there knitting away and the ladies whipped this sucker out. OMG I fell into that wonderful knitting infatuation and just had to buy the pattern and yarn immediately. And I did... Now I can think of nothing but casting this on. Enter my problem.

I haven't talked about it since the first of the New Year but one of my 2010 goals was to donate all of my knitting time to charity knitting during the 2010 winter Olympics. I am still in that mode but man do I hear this yarn and pattern singing to me sort of like a brand new lover would be calling out in my head.

So this floor clearance chair will find a new home in my studio. You can't tell from this picture but the light color is more of a light brown/beige even though it looks more like white in picture.

We are moving some furniture around in the house and it left me needing a comfy knitting chair in the studio. It will be here next weekend. YEAH!!!!!!!
