Well, I didn't get to either of my goals this weekend....but I have a very good excuse! I was having some abdominal pain since Friday and felt sorta lousy all weekend. I went to the Dr on Monday and they thought I might have appendicitis but fortunately it wasn't....whew!! I mainly just sat on the couch and worked on the Clapotis and a little bit on Fetching:
Pattern: Fetching by Cheryl Niamath from Knitty
Yarn: Filatura Di Crosa Zara in Charcoal; 1 ball and a couple of yards from a second
Needles: #7 dpns
These were super quick! only took a couple of hours for each glove. I had started these a long time ago with a different yarn and I really screwed something up on them and threw the project aside and forgot about it. But I really needed something warm for my hads at work so I picked up some new yarn and started a new pair. I gotta tell you, this yarn is soft and all but I doubt I will ever use it again. It was really splitty and the plies came apart and would pull out really easily. Very difficult to work with...and it's not a cheap yarn. Anyway, it's nice to have an FO and now my hands will be warmer at work! YAY!
And I got something in the mail yesterday that cheered me up after having spent 3 hours at the doctors. Look how gorgeous this yarn is! It's Sunshine Yarns superwash in Avacado. I love it!
