Weekend update

Over the weekend, I managed to get more progress done on my second Short 'N Sweet.

What I have so far...

Yesterday, my bf and I went to Barnes and Noble where I ended up drooling over this book. So beautiful! Makes me want to run out to Michael's and buy a bunch of knitting needles. I read reviews online about circular needles and I actually want to try them out. They sound like they are better on the wrists, especially for a longer piece of work. It's a good thing for my bank account that I don't live too near craft stores and LYSs. :-D Bf had to take me by the hand and literally drag me out of the bookstore.

Also, I have been lusting over this book for the past month. I am especially in love with that blue, crocheted cardigan. It looks just like a crocheted version of the Printed Silk Cardigan in the latest issue of Interweave Knits! Pictures of that here. Since I am nowhere advanced enough to knit the Printed Silk Cardigan, it would be nice if I could manage the crochet one. Must resist urge to buy! :-)

In other unrelated crochet news, bf and I celebrated our 2 year anniversary on Saturday. Pictures of gifts below!

My very first Fruits Basket wallscroll (or wallscroll of any kind for that matter)!

Fruits Basket manga all the way up to Volume 18 plus the Fan Book - Cat!

And a Yuki bobblehead figurine! I am a lucky girl indeed. :-D

I love the color of your short n' sweet! It's such a fun project to make. How do you like knitting? I'm really enjoying it. I love the different look you get from knitting!
