Not fifteen minutes after I watered my plants, the sky opened up and it poured for a good little while. What’s more…
There was hail! Not too big, and I don’t think my plants suffered for it, but still – some crazy weather. And I stayed in all day, playing video games (er…Tony Hawk Pro Skater 3) and knitting my Knitty project. No photos, of course, but I do have some other stuff to show you guys:
I picked up a lonely skein of Sock Candy at the store a few weeks ago, and decided to make some anklets. I’m using US1 needles, which I’m finding more and more are unsuitable for me and most sock yarns (lorna’s, trekking) but are just right for this slightly thicker yarn. I really like how it’s turning out, and it’s going fast on 56 stitches.
Oh, and this is the cashmere I bought – the skein on the left is 100 yards of aran weight, and the cone is 640 yards of DK. As I said last time, I may have, upon receiving the package, gone directly back to the store and ordered 8 more skeins. It’s not super super soft feeling (like say, Handmaiden cashmere) but I have a good feeling about washing it up. The colours have me thinking of fall.
