First Fall Harvest

It's still a little warm out west but Fall comes nonetheless in the form so Sheep Shop 2 yarn:

Sheep Shop 2 Bulky Weight
Color G17

I know that bulky girls shouldn't buy bulky yarn but I couldn't resist. I plan to display my bulkiness by knitting the seamless raglan:

And because I'm super cool, I hopped over to Turtlegirl's etsy shop and scored a very clever row counter (they detach) and some cute ABC stitch markers. I can try the Cat Bordhi socks now.

Ooo..yeah, I can see where you caved with that yarn. This chunky girl would have too! And for a seamless raglan? Yeah, even worse cave-age!

Did Bezzie just try to call herself Chunky? Somebody slap her.

That yarn is gorgeous. I'm glad everything got there safely!

I can't to see your progress on the sweater. Beautiful yarn. I also love the stitch markers. I keep meaning to buy some ABC's as well.

Gorgeous yarn, and a really nice sweater! Hey, us chunky girls should knit and wear what we like!

I want to harvest some yarn too! Now there's an idea: the Pick your own Yarn Farm!

Why didn't I think of it before?
