Sweater #2, Basic Pulli for Mom
Yarn: Patons Classic Wool in Aran (3 skeins) and Black (1 skein)
Needles: US 5 and US 2 for ribbing
So, this is Sweater #2 of my November challenge. Wee~! The third sweater, which I finished knitting before I cast on this Chic Knits Basic Pulli, but just started blocking it. It’s a men’s sweater and the thought of wet blocking it scared me…. AHHH~!
So, this is my second sweater. And I really enjoyed knitting it! I didn’t even do the sleeves at the same time, but still they came out perfectly, thanks to the stripes.
November soooo didn’t go as I planned it. 1) National Asian Pacific American Bar Association’s convention in LA, and 2) San Jose trip, and 3) Sample Knitting. I wasn’t going to attend the convention but the opportunity presented itself and I took it. I attended as a volunteer and that was the only way I could afford to go; which meant that I didn’t have much time to myself for that week. But I don’t regret it at all of course. I met some amazing people and really enjoyed the seminars/CLEs. And next year, NAPABA’s going to Atlanta! I’m so there.
San Jose trip was planned, but I didn’t expect it to be so…. energy consuming. Lovely road trip, Bagel loved his new bed in the backseat, everything went smoothly. I expected a small dinner with few people turned out to be 12-course banquet at a restaurant. We didn’t even get to say hi to our friends. I barely… BARELY, made it out to Purlescence Yarns.
3 skeins of Cascade Sierra, 4 balls of di.Ve Automne, and 2 balls of 100% cashmere yarn. All came out to be $20. MUHAHA.
Purlescence is famous for their annual Black Friday Pajama Jammie Jam, which starts at 6AM on Friday. People show up in their PJs, coffee and breakfast/snack provided by the store. Of course, I had to miss it because we started driving up on Friday morning, but even on Saturday, the 75% off table was full of gorgeous yarns.
Oh, Black Friday. Evil evil evil for people with specific shopping addiction….
Other than that, I’m busy as usual, with work (yah, real work), and sample knitting (3~4 projects going on right now…). Cannot believe Christmas is just 2 weeks away!
