Seduce: to win over; attract

Yarn seduces me with her siren call. "Pick me! Pick me!" I am hopelessly enchanted by yarn and am delighted by the endless choices.

WIP Wednesday

Not much progress on my wips although I have been busy.

Right Twist Ribbed Fingerless Mitts

A basic ribbed fingerless mitt with a right twist thrown in for a different look.

I used Knit 1 Crochet 2 Crock-O-Dye color 289 (reds).  It has 15% silk in in! s-o-o-o soft.

Hiya Hiya 9" circular US 2

My Advent Calendar Scarf

I have ripped out frogged the nupps and added beads.

Of course I did not realize I would be frogging the nupps and then frogging the beaded rows 2 times!!

It does make a difference in the stitch count when you forget or drop (don't know which I did) a yarn over.

AND of course you don't discover that error until you've done 3 more rows and the beads are not lining up like they should.

It is hard to see but the beads used in place of nupps are a purple color. (and yes, I did pick them out from  a bag of mixed beads)

Maybe next week I'll have a new sock (or two) to show you. I haven't started February's socks yet. (and no, I have not finished the green Monkeys or the Teal cable socks. I like to have lots of choices to choose from depending on what I feel like knitting)

I don't know how you keep it all straight when you have so many projects going at once. The fingerless mitts are so pretty. Love the yarn colors! :)

Monogamous knitting is highly overrated. That's all I'm saying...

Yikes -- beads and nupps! Scares me. Are nupps the same as bobbles? Eeeenyway, looks so pretty and love the pink mitts!

Good Afternoon! What beautiful projects you are working on. Such talent and patience you have.

For some reason, I always like beads better than nupps; I first figured this out with my Swallowtail .. where I did exactly what you did .. frogged the nupps and went to beads ... just so much prettier, I think! Gorgeous project so far .. which makes me think that I'd like to actually put some knitting posts on my blog, as that's what I initially started it for .. and then it morphed into a book blog ... don't really know how that happened; it wasn't really by design :)
