I'm Getting a Wheel! (well something like that)

Oh yes, he did, my husband said if I knit the yarn in my stash he'll buy me a wheel! Can you beleive it? A Goal! Just what I need. Sure I could save enough money in a year (especially if I knit from my stash) to buy my own wheel. But this is much more fun! Not only will I knit my stash...and a mighty stash it is at that...but I may have $ in the bank at the end of it. However in the meantime, inbetween socks and finely knit scarves, I best be checking out different wheels and see what I like.

Hmmm. I am going to be in Vancouver this weekend. (Pierce's 19th birthday!) I should probably start looking and testing there. Anyway thats all I'm going to say today, as I just had to have it in writing, just in case, and my hubby isn't usually like this, he "forgets" he said it in the year (or two) it will take me to knit the stash.

So the yarn I bought yesterday will be the LAST ONE! Hmmmm. Hurts a bit to say that out loud. I really like the bunny foo foo on STR. But that will be the last one! Might as well disconnect the internet as I don't know if I'll be able to stay away from Etsy.

Finished my Storm Water Scarf out of Handmaiden Sea Silk. Its gorgeous yarn, however I was a bit mislead from the picture of the pattern and the scarf itself. The picture shows a "SHAWL" and what I made was definately a SCARF. (9 inches wide...severely blocked) I don't know who will get it yet as the color isn't for me. However I'll post a pic as soon as I take one.

Oooh, that's a pretty exciting proposal! And definitely a good incentive.
