Self-Striping Yarn... Accidently!Yesterday, while waiting for the seemingly interminable training to finish, I was looking closely at my new hat.... and noticed that on the lower stripe, the yarn made vertical stripes of color. I don't know if you can see on the photo or not... When I dye the yarn, I dye most of it blue and torquoise, and then accents of bright green. Somehow, on the hat, the colors all lined up! You know if I had been trying to do that, it never would have happened.
Last night, instead of working on Menagerie like I meant to, somehow I found myself whizzing through the sleeve of Ocean. Oops! How'd that happen? I guess because I'm so anxious to actually WEAR Ocean, I really want to keep working on it. And, in my defense, I really did think I was a lot closer to finishing the sleeve than I actually was- I was planning on doing the "last part" at home so I wouldn't have all the decreases etc... to keep track of on the bus. As it is, I'm still finishing up the sleeve cap... ;)
This weekend I'm going to try and do some finishing work on Ocean- doing the ends, sewing on buttons, sewing side seams... that type of stuff. Oh, and working on the innumerable ends of Menagerie. As much as I love the way it looks, I am definitely NOT a fan of intarsia. Well, now I know! :)
The Latin phrase for today:
"leader of the pack/flock"
