It looks like I'm single again. It hurts. We have different goals, so it was going to happen no matter what... I just wish it had been easier. A few days ago, David ordered a present for me, and it happened to arrive just in time to be a sort of parting gift.
There's now a Nikon Coolpix digital camera sitting on my desk.
I haven't played around with it much, but I did take two pictures I'd like to show you. I was feeling a little off over the weekend, and the cure turned out to be a little SEX. I got some cotton that I'll talk about later (it was a FO by the next morning), and some Patons Classic Merino that will probably become mittens or gloves.
The colors there are "Aran" and "New Denim". I'll probably work them together in a Fair Isle or Intarsia design of some sort.
I have some WsIP that require more focus and attention than I usually have at the SnB meetings, so I also have a mostly-mindless project to work on when I want to be a bit more social. I'm using more of the Dazzle Aire acrylic/nylon that the LemonEgg shrug (still unfinished) is made out of. The pattern is from the Knitting Pattern-A-Day calendar: "Lacy Winged Shawl" from March 28th. Behold, the... yellow lump!
I have plenty more of this yarn, so the shawl is going to be pretty big. Most of it is stockinette, so I can work on it without paying attention to it. (Yes, Aaron, black magic is involved.)
I haven't forgotten about the Vacation Socks... I just need some time to be okay with looking at them again. I promise I'll post about them before I finish them.
