A round of applause please...
I finished it this morning, and in under 5 balls! I did one less drop stitch repeat thinking that I wouldn't have enough yarn, but woohoo! I have leftovers! Now what to make with a ball and a half of Noro Silk Garden... suggestions?
Today was a gorgeous summers day - not right for sitting in the sun slaving away on something made of wool (which I stupidly did - I AM ON A DEADLINE PEOPLE!), but perfect for trying out Nipplegate, minus the nipple bit - the solution? Wear it with a bikini top. And I have to redo the straps - the cotton is stretched out so much after one wear it isn't funny. Soon it will work well as a dress at this rate.
And I noticed that my hair is in DIRE need of a cut. Those split ends are EVIL.
So now that frees me up to start on the slippers (yes I too am wondering at the wisdom of starting slippers in 28C heat...) and the Zhivago shrug (well I never said I was good at knitting for the right season...).
But my newest toy is the spinning wheel I have on loan. I bought a maintenance kit and have been playing with it but am at a loss as to how I actually use it. My wool fiber hasn't arrived yet (boo hiss) so I will wait impatiently until Monday to try it out. At least, I hope it arrives Monday, or the postie will be getting some SERIOUS yarn withdrawal stares from behind the screendoor...
