Rain, Rain, Go Away - Please!

It's been raining since Saturday. It did stop for awhile yesterday, but there was no sun. The forecast is rain at times heavy this afternoon, rain this evening, rain at times heavy tomorrow, periods of rain Friday, and cloudy with showers on Saturday and Sunday. I forget what sunshine looks like.

We got a shipment of new yarn in yesterday. The Patons Brilliant is very pretty, but I think you'd have to be very careful when using it. It looks very easy to split. I see extra unwanted stitches happening. In the fall we plan on ordering in the dark colors (if it sells). There is a very pretty burgundy. If we get that I may make myself a dressy scarf or something for Christmas and New Year's. We also got Patons Grace in, but they only sent three of the colors we ordered. The shipment also contained Kroy sock yarn, Bernat Sox, and Bernat Handicrafter cotton. I bought 4 balls to make myself some new dishcloths. Mine are all old and faded. I will use them for rags or take them when we go camping. I made myself a bright orange dishcloth last night. I also bought bright yellow, bright blue, and pink. www.patonsyarns.com

The boys are invited to a birthday party on Sunday. I started this sweater for the little guy. www.bernat.com/pattern.php?PID=1050 It is knitting up very fast. I should get the front finished today and at least most of the back if not all of it.

Happy knitting!
