Pink or grey? Grey is just the spot where a line would be, not a line. If it's pink though.... Pics!!!!

Morning everyone!

I love that colorway, Tim!!

I can't seem to stick with a project. It's really depressing me. I start something and after working on it for a bit, I'm just not feeling it and I frog it. I thought this was behind me! I was like this when I was preggo. But last month I finished a pair of socks I started in March and knit a sweater for ds and longies for dd. I feel so lost without knitting.

When I get like this I knit something newborn and new a pattern I have never done before, so that I actually finish it and its small, usually that finished feeling makes me be happy and start knitting better again.

Im actually working on something for my kids today.. and a pair of longies... and another pair of longies.. and another pair of longies, and some arm warmers, and 3 jackets... Sigh.. I need to finish some of these and free up some time!

Re: Knitters/Hookers/Spinners/Dyers *WIP* 8/3

Hi all ........ I am looking for recommendations on yarn. I have been knitting for years but am new to wool and shorties longies etc. .......... If I want to make a sweater for instance what yarn would you use?? Where do you buy your yarns?? there are so many places online that I don't know which is which or which is better..... any help greatly appreciated.
btw....... you are all very talented knitters and dyers. I have been checking the thread occasionally for weeks and love all the wip's .....

HAPPY TUESDAY!

So tired. Woke up when the phone rang. Like 4 hours of sleep. Oh, but I got an award at work yesterday. Woot! My friend asked me if I'd use the little $$ bonus on yarn.
for bonus $$

I got my yarnnoodles today and it is so very pretty!


I am saving up money for 2 things right now: braces for Tabitha and this serger.
I have a serger that is almost brand new, I didn't even use all the small spools (are they called spools on a serger LOL) of thread that it came with if you're interested

What would a typical inseam be on a pair of mediumish longies? Pattern says 10 inces but that seems really long. Hips are 18
