Land of Blaaaaaahs

:sniff, sniff:

:looking pitiful:

My IK magazine still isn't here. So, in need of satisfying my need for knitting related reading, I headed to the library. Well, that's not 100% true. I also had some stuff due that couldn't be renewed. I found Stitch 'N Bitch, Stitch 'N Bitch Nation and The Urban Knitter. I haven't gotten to peruse them in detail, but there are some patterns that have caught my eye. Additionally, the Knit Picks new catalog came in a few days ago. Yummmmmmmy! I'm also thinking of joining Crafter's Choice Book Club. LOL It'll be a miracle if I EVER complete anything!

In the meantime, here is my progress on the OPS capelet.

I'm on the 3rd skein of the Wendy Lux DK. This is also the first time I've attempted a Russian join. I have to admit that I really like it! As for the capelet, I'm not so sure I'm thrilled with it. I don't know if it's lacy enough as I'd want. I'll keep going, but this may end up in the frog pond.

On a non-knitting note, I visited my grandmother on Monday. I was thrilled when she told me I could pick as many of her roses as I wanted. She even supplied the vase!

Those roses are stunning! Gorgeous colors!

I think you will find plenty of patterns that you will like in the books from the library!

Have fun!
