first, before i forget, i've finished a sock!
it really fits my foot. amazing.
actually having the finished sock almost makes me want to knit the other one. almost. we'll have to see how i feel about that once i've cast on and started the ribbing for sock #2. i actually found the toe grafting to be quite fun. well, fun for sock knitting.
i also bought some yarn. it's life purpose is a secret until june 18th. (let's see if the smart ones know why...)
during a team meeting at work, i could not control the urges i had to doodle. then i doodled this sweater. i'm really starting to like it.
bulky alpaca blend yarn on size 11 needles or something along those lines. it has potential.
i had my first Britex Fabrics experience and i was quite overwhelmed. i don't know what i was thinking when i heard it was a four story shop. maybe something like "oh, that's cool" but in real life it's evokes a "my God, this is what heaven must look like" reaction. I went with my mom and paula and we were all in for a surprise.
bolts upon bolts of every color imaginable. in the center there were tons of designer fabrics and hand-beaded patterns on precious silk. quite impressive, and quite expensive. me = cheap. so i went upstairs.
upholstry fabrics galore. paula didn't know what to do with herself.
up the stairs we went to...
this one made me weak in the knees.
i have never seen so many buttons before. this floor had notions galore. this is where i laid down the plastic. it was worth it.
everything up there was on sale! unfortunately, my small budget only got me some scraps of the scraps. SF is expensive. bummer.
here's the best news yet. i'm getting a puppy!!!!!!! i've picked her out, she's a long-haired dachshund and she's only two weeks old. i'll bring her home in about 5 weeks.
i'm in love.
