Yarn Shopping Spree

I went a little crazy buying yarn today. I purchased 3 skeins of Spud & Chloe Outer, as well as the Li'l Man Vest pattern, all from Jimmy Beans Wool. I'm a fan of them so far because my very first online order from them went well. I had ordered a skein of grass for Ribbit and I thought they were very friendly and I was happy with my transaction. In addition, they gave me a coupon for free shipping for my next order so I HAD to order from them!! Also I went to Knit Picks and picked out some yarn. I bought some Knit Picks Wool of the Andes and some Knit Pick Wool of the Andes Bulky. I'm going to make the French Press Slippers (oops did I mention I bought that pattern from Ravelry?) and the Shalom Cardigan. I have a lot of knitting ahead of me with all of this yummy yarn! Woohoo!

This month I've knit about 4 dishclothes and a Ribbit. Here is where the "sloppy" knitting stories come in! On one of the BallBand Dishcloths I accidentally knit a slip stitch a row early. It's pretty visible. I was too lazy to go back and fix it. I mean really..it's only a dishcloth. Then with Ribbit I made a huge mistake!!! I had all the parts ready to go. So I sewed on his arms and legs. Then I went to attach the head. After it was all together I couldn't figure out why the arms and legs weren't sitting right. I then realized that I had put his head on the wrong side of the body. Did I fix it?? NO of course not. I left it. Ribbit now has personality! Here is a pic of Ribbit:

See how his little arms don't sit flat against his body?? That's because they are upside down LOL!
