The Creative Juices are Flowing!

I had a minor health issue recently.  It is all taken care of now, but I had to take a few days off work.  I couldn't do much, but I was able to sit and knit quite well, thank you!  I finished the Toddler Tunic I was working on for a soon to arrive baby girl.  As usual I bought way more yarn than I needed so I figured why not knit a couple of other pink baby girl things.  Soon I had some baby booties and a cute hat, all in a sweet light pink color.  Now I just have to wrap them and get them in the mail (which is always the hardest thing for me for some reason...probably due to my laziness).  Once they are received and opened by the special expectant mother, I will share some photos.

After completing that project, I wasn't sure what I should start next, but settled on a featherweight cardi (ravelry link) in Spinning Colors yarn.  I got a skein of Emerald lace yarn that is to die for!  This is my first green sweater and since green is my favorite color I am very happy.  I had never knit lace weight yarn before so I was a bit intimidated.  I am happy to say that it is going very well and much quicker than I expected.  This will be a sweater that I can use quite a bit even here in Texas.  It's light weight makes it perfect for wearing inside in the summer, when people seem to turn the AC to freezing in my office.

My new sweater addiction is happily being supported by my LYS, the Knitting Nest's Sweater University.  This group will meet every other week during the summer to work on a sweater of our choice.  I can't wait to graduate! :)

Also, I just found out today about a great e-course in early June to help me get the creative juices flowing!  To make it even better it is FREE!  I hope to get some good ideas to revamp my blog and start getting some more ideas for some knitting designs by moi.
