Good stuff about this week:
My little sister may have finally crossed over to the knitters side! She asked me to show her how to cast on again. She took some needles and a skein of Wool of the Andes back to campus with her on Monday. I am so proud of the fact that I did not unload any of the shitty stash on the unsuspecting 🙂
After going stir crazy for several days I got a chance to go out alone this week. I got off of the train at Broadway and Nassau and walked all the way to 34th street! I love to walk. As long as I have my iPod and comfy shoes I can walk anywhere. Along the way to 34th street I stopped by Lush and got a fantastic hand massage. I left many dollars lighter with some Ocean Salts and a Buffy bar in my bag. They may compete with yarn cash. Maybe.
My feet were protesting when I got home though. But that night, by some small miracle, all of the children were asleep by 9 o’clock. (Well it wasn’t actually a miracle, they all woke up at about 7 am that day. WHY? I ask you.) I got to soak my weary feet and watch Juno on dvd. I really enjoyed it so the day stayed great.
While that day still comes out on top, today wasn’t so bad because….my Little Knits order came. Yarn!
Now I have to resist the urge to cast on for a new project. I’m on the right front of Lush and Lacy and I love how it’s coming out in Cathay. The stitches look so crisp and neat 🙂 I may make it long sleeved too, 1 ball was enough to make the front so that will leave two balls each for the sleeves. That will be a long sleeved L&L sweater and my Liesl bolero with one bag of yarn. Sweet!
