So yesterday, I gossiped with the biddies at a local yarn shop and bought a ball of Cascade 220 Heathers, one of my favorite worsted-weight yarns. I whipped out my old-school size 8's (stainless steel, AND they have a ruler on them!) and started casting on. I made almost half of the sample of the pattern I'll be giving a way. Not a bad day.
Oh, and I also made another foot of the Lace Tutorial scarf...Lion Brand liked my submission but I'm sure there's some sort of board approval and editing process that has to take place before the Lion-Brand-Reading world will read it. I'm okay with that.
And finally, the linen-stitch shop sample is turning out stunning, but it put me to sleep on the plane. Or perhaps, I was already exhaused from not sleeping for a few days, and I was just due. Either way, I only did three rows of that one. But in my defense, three rows of a 400-stitch pattern isn't so bad, is it?
I need coffee...excuse me...
