Now that it's done I think I'll wait a bit before I start the other kit I purchased. I'm sure I'll love it too, it's in the original colorway which is really cute, (but a little break with some sock knitting is in order.)
I wasn't sure about the i-cord attached edging around the back of the neckline, I went into every stitch and wondered later about going every 3 for 4 etc. It still came out fine and I'm VERY happy with this little treasure! I also am glad I switched out the one colorway that I didn't like for the green, it just makes me happy happy.
Yesterday I washed it (in the washing machine) and layed it out to dry. Today it's even SOFTER and smooshier. I love (LOVE) this yarn! I may re-think making an "adult" size sweater out of it after seeing how it held up. For me that's a HUGE deal, I'm definitely an "easy-care" kind of gal. I don't do dry cleaning often (like almost never) so it's a must that any yarn I use will be the washable kind. Even the cost of this wouldn't deter me if this is the quality I get afterwards. (And if I could just lose some weight I could use even less yarn!)
I also finished up some Berroco Pleasure sock booties for my Mom. She has a fuschia pair and wanted another. I didn't remember that I had extra of this blue, it's so pretty I know she'll love them. These little suckers can be VERY warm, but she still enjoys wearing them around the house.
Yesterday was a fun day (sarcasm implied here). I got my flu shot (ouch), got blood drawn, got smooshed at the Breast Center, and after all that jolly good fun I got to drive home on the interstate in the rain!! Whew!
What a long day! I was at the BC for-ev-er. I'm so glad I brought my knitting with me! I was the only one not complaining about how long it was taking because I had something to keep me occupied. I bet those other women were thinking "I should really learn how to knit!". Everything went good though, my mammogram was fine, my cholesterol is down and I got home safely in all that mess even in 5 0'clock traffic. I was very blessed.
I'm off to work on my SweetTart socks. This colorway of Tofutsies that I'm making reminds me of that candy package so that's what I call them. I've been reading up and thinking of working some socks from the Toe Up, but got to thinking that working them cuff down truly "relaxes" me. It's my "happy to-go-to kind of knitting" I'll still try them one day I know, (another excuse to buy MORE sock yarn) but I am supposed to be enjoying what I'm doing. (Some of the toe up patterns are too much to think about !!) Sometimes I have to remember what really makes me a happy knitter. I think it's the whole being "tired" a lot lately thing too....LOL!! My brain is drained.
