Hi out there!
I started my Summer Top yesterday (I have been placed in the wrong column, I am knitting the summer top and not crocheting the tote) because my DD Anna has her Grand Birthday on Sunday, she will be 3 and for the first time she is really looking forward to it. I bought some cotton in the local COOP-shop (Brugsen in Denmark), I chose the colours light lavender as main colour and hot pink for the hearts and borders *giggle* - the white yarn for Hello Kitty comes from the stash.
I already can see myself knitting a summer dress for Anna in this cotton yarn and with these colours again - they may be special but they also are great (in my eyes).
But I once again am reminded why I prefer knitting with ONE colour at a time and why I adore the creation of patterns with aran knitting, lave knitting, short rows etc. - boy, is it annoying to be knitting with three active colours and trying to put DS Emil, who is 10 months, to sleep at the same time - he is getting up on his feet in his bed again and again and I am putting down the needles and lying him down again and again...*sigh* Must be a bit funny to watch me fighting with not only Small Boy but also Many Strings. ;o)
