Woooo HOOO!!!Here I am, snuggled inside of Ocean for the second day in a row! Unable to resist how close I was to finishing it, I finished it on Saturday (well, technically Sunday morning when I sewed on the buttons!) I really love it- warm and snuggly, but also unique and artistic. I do need to block it though- the button bands need a little shaping- but it looks good enough that I couldn't wait that long to wear it. Yesterday it was warm enough that I didn't need a jacket- but today I'm wearing it as a sweater. :)
Of course, after finishing Ocean, I had to start on the next project- Tiger Stripe socks for my friend (in the Opal yarn). I have about 2 inches done- I needed to do the short-row toe where I could really concentrate on it- I've never made socks before, and didn't want to try the complicated parts on the bus for the first time.
Tomorrow- PICs! :) I was too busy knitting this weekend to snap any. Oh, and poor Menagerie lay neglected and untouched- but now, no excuses!
The color card I ordered for the Jamieson and Smith shetland wools came on Saturday, so I picked out colors to order for my dad's vest. I'll order the yarn in a few weeks- I know if I order it now, poor Menagerie will have little or no chance, and I really need to finish it. Which includes weaving in all those ends!
The Latin phrase for today:
"clouds will intervene"
