This should indicate to you how serious I am about the Rams Horn Jacket. Behold my first gauge swatch.
I’m getting stitch gauge but not row gauge, although from the blogs that I read this seems like a common thing so I’m not worried. Now about that bad habit.
I love to read and I used to buy so many magazines and books a month that I put myself on a diet. I subscribed to a few and learned to live without the rest and I started to go to the library for books. But afer a particularly rough third(!!!) visit to Vital records to correct a birth certificate I needed some retail therapy. My recent on line yarn orders stopped me from going to The Point. I was in the area returning yet another film to TLA (The 39 Steps this time) and it was very tempting but I resisted. I left B&N with Blueprint, Vogue Knitting, and The Knitters Almanac. Handknit Holiday’s and Toys to Sew are from Crafters Choice (to fulfill my subscription). I couldn’t resist the EZ book thanks two of my favorite bloggers and their lovely mittens. I see another knitpicks order for Telemark in the near future. Speaking of yarn.
My order! Sue wrote me a nice note on my invoice so I’m glad I followed the advice you guys left and didn’t send an email. I’m having the same feelings about the Noro that I had when I finally saw Koigu in person for the first time. I want to jump right in and start my scarf but I’m not sure if I want to make a small Feather and Fan scarf/shawl or something rectangular. So while I mull it over I’m going to start my Buttony Sweater. I know that I’m excited to start because normally I would be napping right now instead of blogging and plotting on knitting. I think this is good, hopefully I won’t feel exhausted later. Off to knit.
