Attack of the pink UFOs
These landed here yesterday. Pink UFOs.
They did not come alone. They brought friends.
Niina & I went shopping yesterday. In Menita yarn store we saw some ZenZulu brochures... or ads or whatever you call them saying that the shop sells beads. Because the shop was close to Menita, there we went. And bought beads.
I also have a blue UFO in addition to the pink lampwork UFOs.
I started a sweater of ONline Linie 87 Street, a cotton blend ribbon yarn I got from Vihreä Vyyhti last week. The yarn was on sale and I wanted to try some ribbon yarn for a change. The result reminds me of terrycloth...
The sweater will be quite simple, I make it up as I go. I knit in the round on 7 mm needles so the progress is quite good. The sweater has a seed stitch edge, then it's just plain stockinette. I think I'll make raglan sleeves. So far so good - I think this will be one of the "don't know if I actually liked it when I knitted it" sweaters that eventually turn out to be my favourites.
