Jackpot at LYS

So I went to the lys yesterday and spent my children's inheritance. I got 2 pair of addi turbo's size 4 and 5, some Cascade sassy stripes for barbie clothes, 2 sock books, a swift, and some other spin off magazines that are not pictured. Oh yeah add some stitch holders to that too. I already put them in my project bag. I decided I wanted to splurge for once, that is where the turbo's come in. What a great pair of needles, I just love them.

In knitting news I have been working on some barbie clothes. I have been having some difficulty with the sweaters. On the first one(the raglan) I totally did a good job on gauge and the construction of the pieces. I even blocked it and everything. The problem was seaming. I am a terrible sewer. I really need some seaming lessons. Now on the second one I knit it top down. I did a gauge swatch that was perfect and started knitting. I totally followed the pattern and even added an extra row to be on the safe side that it would be long enough. As you can see I really messed it up somewhere. It was suppose to be long sleeve not 3/4 or 1/2 sleeve and it also was not suppose to be a belly shirt. Now the skirt on the other hand turned out perfect. There was a hat to match the skirt but dd lost it in the shuffle before I could get pictures taken. I had fun doing these but I am back to the drawing board when it comes to the tops.

I have been working a little on the jaywalkers but not enough to post a progress picture. I will have that by Monday I am guessing. Well off to work my new swift and progress on the jaywalkers. Everyone have a nice weekend.
