An Unused Box!
Something should go here.
Saturday, April 28, 2007
I went on something of an interstate yarn hunt this morning. With a mere 15 rows left on my Picovoli sleeves, I ran out of yarn. So I called Stitch DC. Apparently I cleaned them out of cream color Cathay last year. [Back in the day when all this Cathay was going to be Spring Fling]). So I called Knit Happens. And bless the yarn gods, they had it! So off I went.

I almost never go to KH because I get lost and I can't parallel park. So I park in garages. But, bless the parking gods, there was an unmetered space right at the end of a block that I could just pull into!

So I went, I had a celebratory sandwich at Cosi [in honor of finding yarn and a parking space. The sandwich was very bad, by "Could I have a tiny bit more honey mustard" I did not actually mean "Could you put a big glob of honey mustard right in the middle, and not spread it out on the bread at all"], I got my ball (same dye lot!), I knit my 15 rows, and I bound off and I skipped back to my car.

I outsourced the sewing down of the picot hem to my mom (in exchange for a nice steak), and it still really, really needs a wash and block, in the worst way. I'm also considering dying it. Now that I have a whole extra ball to make swatches with, I'll have to read up on what (if anything) will dye Cotton/Silk/Microfiber. Let there be something, cream does not match my skin very well.

    What an adventure! I am glad to read that everything turned out ok. I think that the color looks nice with your skin...
