Ahh... What a great day. The sun is shining, I'm drinking coffee out of my sheepy mug, and I have a valid reason to toss all WIPS aside to start a new project. Carma is now researching what yarn she wants for her mitts.
Yesterday, Nate took me birthday shopping. He bought me a new bedding set. (It's so nice. I would take a picture, but you would all ridicule me for our "little mermaid" paint scheme. Our bedroom used to house two little girls, and we have yet to repaint it.)
He bought me a Stevie Wonder CD. (I suspect he did this because he was sick of hearing me sing "superstition" acappella.)
And, Carma, a new printer! Can you imagine? A non-temperamental printer that actually works. No constant blinky lights. No small fortune to replace ink cartridges, no printer-possessed moments at 2 am when the printer turns itself on and shoots out paper at will. If I could do a proper cartwheel in celebration I would.
While out last night, I thought I would wear my new "Tiger Lily" hat. But there was a snag in this plan. It's too big. Now I used this pattern, and took a few liberties with the color stripes. Other than that I had spot on gauge, and followed the directions to a tee. I made the smallest size. When I tried it on...
Oh wait--my bad....
So Tiger Lily will be going into the washer today, in efforts to felt it to a proper size. Yesterday I ended my post with an attempted entrelac. This is what have so far.
I realize I do not have enough for a scarf, so I am not sure what this will end up being, but it pretty and I like it.
