I’ve never been so happy to be on Sleeve Island. I cast off the body and just have sleeves to knit.. beaver I can start something new. I never thought I could get excited about sleeves, but apparently it can happen.

Once I finally get the sweaters off the needles I have decided that I am going to knit Funky Grandpa. I have wanted to knit this for what seems like forever. I am pretty excited about this. I have started looking at my favorite Rarely projects to look for modifications, color selections, and any issues people encountered with the project.  I will need to swatch but my current reward for just getting to Sleeve Island is to bring the yarn down from the area where I stash most of my yarn. I think once I finish one of the projects I will either pick color combinations and or wind the yarn for my reward.

In the meantime… I finally took some pictures of the hats I finished last month for the Amy Miller Summer Accessory KAL.

Ohhhh So no major buying spree but in all honesty I did buy the following at the local Japanese bookstore today.

LOVE these! Makes me wish I spoke Japanese. Thank goodness for pictures.
