It was gorgeous outside yesterday. But I came home early from work, feeling little under the weather so all I did was looking outside through the window like a sad sad puppy.
I think it was really nice outside today too, but I really don’t know for sure because I was at work. Well… it happens.
I did manage to start on a new project (way to change the subject totally randomly). Once again, Dublin Bay socks are on hold, but I started on Rusted Root.
I used Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece in Candy Apple, which was a super sweet birthday gift from Tania earlier this year. And I got to try out Suzanne’s brand ebony circular needles that I’ve had for a while. The yarn I love – it’s kinda weird. It’s like cotton (duh) so it’s a bit splitty but it’s really soft and “warm” and light unlike 100% cotton, if that makes any sense. The needles, on the other hand, I’m kinda undecided on it. The needle portion I really like. For being wood it’s pretty slick and sturdy, not like bamboo. However, I’m not so keen on the join – where the cable joins the needle, the yarn would catch, and that’s been driving me pretty nuts. Overall, it’s a-okay of needle, not my favorite, but I don’t despise it either.
And… now time to go back to knitting. I intend to finish this sweater, and block, wash, and have it ready to wear for Thanksgiving (that gives me about a week). I think I can manage it, or I’m hoping. I’m having my fingers crossed. Oh and watch TV. New season of Project Runway starts tonight. I’m not that excited about it, but hey, it’s something to watch. Oh yes, it’s sew time.
