2) my ella tank is done! it took forever to dry after blocking, but it did shrink a little, thank goodness. i was careful to not stretch the ribbing – in fact i just scrunched it all up at the end, worrying about the fit – so there’s still a lot of spring to it, which is great since it’s a cotton blend. for more info, go to the project page.
4) i’m almost done with orangina! i started it last week with some buttery-soft dale yarn (in turquoise! with just a hint of black trim at the end) and i’m already on the ribbing. i switched to size 2s for this last part, wanting to make sure it’s good and snug – so this could take a while. oh and about procrastination: if i’m churning out projects, the odds are i’m not doing something else i really should be doing.
5) talking about school work, i just finished the perks of being a wallflower and hard love and they were both so very good – i feel all optimistic about people and life and all those other things you feel after reading a good book. i love my YA class – and yup, i still have about half a dozen books i have to read before the quarter ends, with another dozen i’d really like to.
6) the fall preview (!) for interweave’s knits is up! so far i like the flower pillows and the cabled shrug the best – a loose shrug is a great great idea whose time has come, i say.
hope everyone is having a beautiful weekend – let’s hope the sun is out and shining tomorrow, i plan on exploring some parks. yay for holidays!
