Lovely time last night at the SNB-purlygirls at the El Diablo cafe. I had THE BEST smoothie ever: Strawberry, Mango, Lime. Oh YUM!
I am on the decreases (12" from the bottom) on my shapely tank. Ergg.. I need to order more yarn still! I am also HOPING it fits!
I restrained myself from purchasing yarn to make another sweater (it was even on sale) I wanted Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Super Chunky. I hope to find it that cheap again ($10/skein) when I can responsibly purchase it. I think I can do that after I finish my Rosedale sweater with Noro yarn that I splurged on. I am also happy to have heard the idea of washing my wool in some hair conditioner to soften it up. It makes sense.
Last night when I got home, I decided to try out Reversible 2-color knitting. It worked after several attempts and then I messed up a row. I don't think it's worth the time it takes to do it. I would have to practice a lot to not have to think about it so much. I was hoping to make a star pattern that would be pretty to post - but I don't think it's going to happen. I'm glad i tried. That's what's good about library books have a due date- they get you motivated to do it before you have to return it.
I used my flower washcloth this morning and realize that the yarn really should be cotton NOT the acrylic I used. I kind of drags on my face and isn't super luxurious. Now what to do with the left over yarn? Maybe I'll do that critter donation blanket deal - that looks like a good cause.
