(Sorry for the case of the blurry-hands. I seem to have that today.)
Top, from left: package from eBay containing an iPod hard drive; boyfriend and I attempted surgery on his iPod tonight (prognosis: not good, but there is hope). Titbit in progress. Yarn for design (pretty!). Random skein of handspun that I brought upstairs from where it was hanging out in the living room.
Bottom, from left: New body of Raspy, looking much more reasonable in size (and still so soft and quick-going and thus, satisfying). Pattern. EZ’s Knitting Around (Adrian’s Moccasin Sock looks so great! I think I need to make them too…), a Lindt chocolate, and a row counter, which belongs to Raspy.
I seem to be in a buying mood lately – and there’s only so much I can say is “happy birthday to me”! (My 22nd birthday is on the first of august, in case anyone wanted to send me anything…)
I started thinking about how nice a thin, stretchy but warm black sweater would be. Blue Sky Alpaca! Mmmmmm.
And then I went by the Big R to buy a needle, and found this in the sale room:
It’s Phildar aran weight cotton/acrylic, in a fabulous olive green. I have the hardest time finding this colour, and I love it. It was $6.35 a ball…and then I found out they were having a sale, 20% off everything including sale yarn. Dangerous. I managed not to buy anything else.
More yarn is in the mail, too. Oy. I also kind of want to try this new Knitpicks yarn (there are other new ones too, including a superwash worsted wool). And with all the talk about the Options needles, I’ve been wanting to try those. After all, if they can convert a die hard Denise girl (which I am, as well), they must be pretty good!
