So, Cambio is drying. I finished it after a marathon of Medium (i want her family) and am a little antsy because before i can wear it i have to get some hook and eye tape and some velvet ribbon to reinforce the edges. I'm not about to wear it without those things - i know as well as anyone how temperamental cotton can be when you give it a chance to droooooooop. But i cant decide if i ought to sew those things on by hand or by machine. Advice would be appreciated!
While waiting for Cambio to dry, i pulled out some silky mohair. holy mother, this stuff is glossy! I'm going for a fingering weight 2-ply. are you surprised? it's just the weight i find easiest to knit with. anything bulkier and i really struggle to do anything with it.
And i responded to the siren song of some sock yarn i dyed a few weeks ago and then couldnt part with. it's a new colourway that i have yet to name. And its a new sock pattern i'm nutting out as well. so, i'll keep you all posted.
The flu is pretty much in retreat. i'm still snuffley and tire easily but i feel SO much better. Actually, it's kind of doing my head in - i feel great and then get exhausted halfway through doing the groceries! Thanks so much to all the well wishers. It's been a little weird having my parents out of the state while i'm so sick... monkey is a great nurse but sometimes you just need your daddy, you know what i mean?
Ok, off to glare at Cambio some more and knit my un-named and delicious sock yarn.
