Happy Friday!!Well, yesterday, in my genius, I managed to overwrite the previous post. Oh well- I didn't have anything earth-shattering posted. Although, as Cricket pointed out, there was a rather stunning picture of her, so I'll have to repost that as well. This is a picture of one of the amazing cherry trees still blooming downtown- I went last Sunday and spent an hour or so knitting under the trees. I would have spent more time, but it has been COLD. In the 40s cold. In APRIL. Ugh. I think it's supposed to start getting warmer this weekend... I'm SO tired of dragging my winter coat back out of the closet!
I'm about 5 inches into the left front of my mom's vest, and the cable pattern is showing up, although it is a little more subtle on account of the "wavy-ness" of the yarn. I've also discovered that I do NOT like working cables in this yarn... not a good feel to it. But I think it will look good, and give me the effect I imagined, so I'll power through the 2 vest fronts, and never do cables with the yarn again! :) I've even planned it so the cable will continue all the way to the shoulder seam, although the arm and neck decreases will eat away all the surrounding stitches. Hopefully once I edge it with i-cord, it will look good...
I just saw, from my credit card statement online, that my order of the black yarn for my dad's vest was charged yesterday... so in a week or so (hopefully less!) that'll arrive. It's going to be tough to leave all that new yarn at home during our trip to Las Vegas, but I've already decided that I'll restrain myself and only bring socks to work on while we're there. :)
And I leave you with a moment of kitty-zen...
perhaps this is the reason my nose gets tickled at night?
