And I've been knitting - Jaywalker on the bus & train (not quite done yet, so I won't finish before the end of October) and a pair of Fetching for the boy:I hope they don't look too girly - of course, he said he liked them, but I don't know. I do know I love them - I can't believe I haven used the Wool of Andes yarn I ordered almost a year ago yet. Man, that is some great stuff - I like it more than a lot of the wools I've used for things like this - the Brown Sheep worsted for my poptarts for instance - it's really easy to knit with & seems very sturdy. I wouldn't use it for anything like a scarf - too itchy - but it's fantastic for gloves & felting - which since I have a washer here, I can do! Woo Hoo! Fuzzy Feet! Anyway...this was my first cable project as well, I'm not quite as comfortable with it as I'd like to be but I do like how they turned out. Now for the second one!
I also placed (I think) a KnitPicks order - yes, probably not what I should be doing, but they are for Christmas gifts. I ordered the Bacchus in the Bathtub & a bunch of Shine Worsted for them. And a couple of colours of Swish to try out. A friend of our asked for a scarf so I'm using the navy & black for that and maybe a pair of Jade Fetching for myself. But I'm not sure if it went through or not - I got the confirmation email but the stuff is still in my basket on the website. If I don't hear anything else by tomorrow, I'm going to give them a call.
That's about it for now. I leave you with Mina, lounging in the new home. Notice the (sigh) boxes in the background.
