Fishy Dreams

First, I got something in the mail today. The Shrone sent me my official Shrone card! Now I can really cause some trouble.

And I have a little more progress on my Celtic Dreams. The upper back is finished and I have picked up and started the upper front. Pretty good progress for me.

And now to the fishy part. I am obsessing again. I have had a one track mind about a project for some time now. So I have decided not to buy anything else knitty or anything that would be considered a non-necessity and save up for it. This is going to be my first major knitting purchase. This will also be the first actual knit kit I have bought. I usually just get the pattern and then get the yarn later.

I want to do Hanne Falkenberg's Mermaid 7. I just can't help myself. All that lovely purply goodness. The Purple, Lilac, and Aubergine colors are great together.

I really must blame this on Annie. She made a Mermaid and it is beautiful. Go see for yourself and tell her so.

Ok I am off to work on Celtic and think about Mermaid some more.

Your Celtic Dreams is looking really great. I got 98% of the body of mine knit before completely abandoning the poor thing. Maybe I'll pick it up again some day.

You've got me seriously drooling over that Mermaid! Even more motivation for me to learn how to knit. I lost countless hours browsing the designer's site, as well as visiting the US supplier looking for more info. Can you tell me how much the kit is, I couldn't find any prices?

I'll definitely be keeping watch for progress reports on this project!
