a wee bit of knitting

things have been busy here so i haven't been doing much knitting. or much watching of tv series on dvd, in spite of the fact that my coworker lent me the first two seasons of the wire. i'm going to need to get watching if i want to get it finished before moving. but i digress.

there is one project i've been working on. it doesn't look like much yet, but i think it will be quite nice when its finished. its the cotton yarn i bought in asheville, nc. i'd never worked with cotton before and its definitely a different feel than wool, but its nice and light.

a big white blob

and, after i finished the last wrap i bought myself some yarn in a color as far away from orange as i could get. its a beautiful purple laceweight purchased on etsy.

the color is so vibrant it almost shines. i don't know what i'm going to make yet, but i can't wait to see what it looks like when its knit up.

Ohhh, I do love that color! Anything you make with that will be killer. I think the blob looks pretty, too, though; it has a softness to it even in the photo.

I hope you'll show us the results of both!

Both look beautiful, even the blob :)
