Awwwww, thank you guys so much for all your encouraging comments to my last post! I suspect my frustration my have had something to do with a lack of time to work on it and therefore see progress. I’ve had some time the last few days though, so I’m now up to almost 3 repeats (13 inches) of sleeve and am in the third repeat of the body – that last shot showed 2 repeats of sleeve and 1 repeat of body. I’ve switched to a 40 cm circ for the sleeve, so now I don’t have to fight with the magic loop, but I’m concentrating on the body – I’m going to get that done this weekend, dammit!

I do seem to be very good at making the very same mistake multiple times – using pewter instead of charcoal in the first few rows of that big motif. Hrmph.

One thing I’m a bit worried about is getting the sleeve and body onto one needle. I was hoping to get the 100 cm version of this needle (garnstudio bamboo – LOVE THEM, but obviously they’re discontinued; it figures) when I went in to get the 40 cm one, but no cigar. I might have to split the stitches and do some kind of two circs thing when I get there.

I don’t have any pics of limerick today, but I do have another amusing photo – I asked megan to order me some Eucalan, and this is what I got:

In case you can’t see it, it says 135 fl. oz./4 L! FOUR LITRES OF WOOLWASH! Considering how much washing of clothing and yarn I do, it’s certainly economical. No more worrying about running out….for a long, long time.

    Wow. I didn’t think it even came in such a size! No sleep lost worrying about running out of it for a decade or so!

    Holy smokes, you could wash flocks and flocks of sheep with that much Eucalan!

    Just curious how many garment washes will you get out of the 4L? Wish these are available in Singapore :(

    WOW. I didn’t even realize that Eucalan came in anything larger than 16 oz!
