This and That
My rabbit beads came so I made some stitch markers for some bunny. It's dark and gloomy here and not very good for photos. Scanning creates a lot of artifacts with the crystals and miracle beads as you can see, but it was the best of the attempts. I was looking for the white plastic rings I have been using, but could only find these pink and blue ones.
I drove down Ward Avenue today, and one of the parking lots was a lake. The mission to find shoes for my cousin's wedding and school/work shoes for my son was successful! I feel like I'm ready for "Dress for Less" .
Okay, I'll fess up, we also stopped at Border's where I resisted the Spring Vogue, but got the new Pieceworks as it had some knitted wristlets in it.
Brittany came through with my replacement needle. They sent me 4, not just the one that was broken. They certainly stand by their word. I'm a little more concerned about my order from Four Seasons in Canada. I got an email saying my order was received, but no word that my order was shipped, and no response to my email. Since I never ordered from there before, I'm concerned. I'll try to be patient a bit more.
I love the Cascade 220 Superwash to knit with. I had to forsake Rogue again as I could not get gauge, but decided instead to do Bpt, cabled hoodie, from Knitty. It's top down, and I am almost to the bottom where I will have to do, attached i-cord, a new technique. The tutorials I have seen start with casting 3 stitches on a spare dp, but the pattern says to just start with the first 3 stitches. I'll have to just try it when I get there, but it sounds interesting.
Gotta get ready for Project Spectrum yellow and orange next!
