I signed up for another class

This time I am knitting something for myself. Something I have never done. The pattern is called The Wonderful Wallaby. It's a hooded sweater, which will come in handy for the winter. Yesterday I went to my lys and purchased the yarn for it. After much going back and forth deciding which yarn I wanted to use, I finally decided to use the Plymouth Encore in a darker shade of purple. The yarn is machine wash & dry. I was going to use the Cascade 220 yarn but, it is not wash & dry. If I can't through it in the washer & dryer forget it. lol I like easy. It's not suppose to shrink either.
There are so many different sizes in the book to make.From a child size 2 to an adult super size. I am making a size up from what I would normally do just because I like wearing a shirt under my sweatshirts and this will be no different and I want a lot of room.
I am really excited about this project. I have never made anything for myself outside of a hat for winter. The class is in 3 parts. Sat June 5th 11:30 - 1:00pm, Sat June 19th 11:30 - 1:00pm and Sat July 10th 11:30 - 1:00pm.
In order to do this project, I would not allow myself to get the yarn until I caught up with UFOs. I did that. :) I finished the thumb on a mitten and will be sending these out to Sandy for the Bridge Project. I also finished a scarf I started. I will be sending the scarf along with a hat out to Scarlet for The Metro Hotel. She said it was not due until Christmas but, it's done and will be sent out. I finished the increases on the Fantasy Naturale baby sweater and am waiting for the next class to finish that up.
It was suppose to rain at some point yesterday but, held off to a little bit ago. Yeah I guess we can use the rain. It's going to be so hot this week, maybe this is a good thing to get everything watered before then. The grass got cut yesterday and is looking good. Roses are getting watered and looking good. Everything is so green! I love it!
Well I guess that's it for now. Hope your weekend went well.
Until next time...

Good luck on your project. I'd love to take a class. I wish there was one local. The nearest gathering I know of is an hour away.

I've tried half dozen times to print that mitten pattern, it won't cut and paste to my word/works

Was able to paste in an email; but then it wouldn't print.

Thanks bunches Bunny both for your donation--love the hat and mittens and have posted them. Thanks too for printing and sending the pattern. I've added that pattern to our page also.

No clue why I was having trouble, something weird with my computer no doubt.

Your class sounds interesting and fun. One of these days I'm gonna do something like that. My primary problem is my weird very unpredictable work schedule. It changes sometimes 3 or 4 times a week, making it hard to comment to a specific time and place for something like lessons.

Keep us posted how your classes go. I know you'll enjoy them and do well.

Me popping in again for a visit, this time from Sandy's Space. I'm making my rounds today.

Hope all is well with you. Hope you're still enjoying the class. One day I hope to do some of that myself.

Seems I'm always playing catch up. Popped in to say thank you for the great socks! They came several days ago, but I'm just now catching up with The Bridge.

Many many thanks Bunny, they are so very much appreciated.
