Okay, first of all I’d like to thank everyone who voted on my Threadless design! It finished scoring early early this morning and came out with a final score of 2.46 out of 5 total. I hope that’s good enough to be printed, and I’ll definitely keep you all posted as to what the next stage is!
Also, BLAAARRGGHALISJFLUGAOISHDHGA;LJSJROAIUHGD I LEFT MY CAMERA AT MY BOYFRIEND’S WHEN I WENT TO VISIT THIS PAST WEEKEND!!!!! And he’s not coming to visit me until August 3 and there’s NO way I’m having him put a Nikon DSLR in the mail, so until he comes to see me I’m camera-less. Meaning I am nice-camera-less and will, for the time being, be using my dad’s little Canon point-and-shoot. I have some pictures of a new yarn I bought that I have to download, but not having my camera means that the few pictures I got to shoot of my pies (which were pretty delicious, by the way) won’t be up until early August. Which sucks.
And now, to come to the second part of this entry’s title. Yes, Cranberry Madness. The lovely yarn that I just bought, mentioned in the paragraph above, is actually really nice. It’s Green Mountain Spinnery mohair yarn died in this wonderful deep red color, and the more I work with it the softer it gets. The problem is that the combination of it and the pattern for which I’m using it is driving me absolutely nutso.
I can guess what some of you are thinking. You’re not even done with your beret yet; what are you doing taking on other projects??
Well, for your information, I’m done with three point five inches of the lacework on my beret, and I think that it’s good to take a bit of a break every once in a while. Don’t you? I expect this side project to be a quick knit, and then I can go back to my beret all contented-like.
Well, I expected it to be quick. Since I first cast on yesterday afternoon I have restarted this beast at least fifteen times. Either the stitches are too loose, or the spaces in between them are horridly uneven, or it’s just a disgusting excuse for a first row and it’s easier to sack it than try to fix it. Uurgh. As a result, I have huge cramps in my left pinky and I’m going a bit cross-eyed. I will complete this project, though. Just you wait and see.
