Moving On

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.

Patons Classic Merino

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!

Egg Shawl

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.

Oh Lilith, I'm sorry to hear of the break up. That just sucks.

Well, atleast you can take comfort in knowing you'll never run into him at Stop & Shop or Dunkin Donuts- like I do.

Awww.... Very sorry. *hugs*

I'm loving the yellow lump, though - beautiful colors.

I am so sorry it didn't work out.

That does suck. And why does it hurt even though you know it's coming? I wish someone could explain that to me. You can know from the beginning that it's not going to be forever but still feel heartbroken when it actually ends. I'm sorry for you sweetie.
