Yarn sale!

There was a big yarn sale at Yarning For You this weekend. I got there just after they opened this morning and it was a zoo! There was a special room in which everything was 50% off, so I picked out enough Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran for a long-sleeved sweater for me (rusty-orange-brown, cream, and brown), and 4 balls of baby wool in red and orange for, y’know, socks or mittens or whatever. When I got home I googled the Debbie Bliss yarn and found that a lot of people say it pills badly, and I had a kind of a meltdown but Dan made me feel better, and then I thought about it some more and decided that since it’s sooooooo soft, I don’t care so much if it pills. I’ll handwash it carefully and shave it if necessary. So then I went looking for inspiration and found Tubey, which actually calls for this very yarn. I found a million photos of finished Tubeys online and *most* of the time it works up really cute. And I think I see where some people went wrong — shrug part too long down the back, and too many stitches around the body. I’m going to fit the shrug part ever so carefully, knit a couple of inches of sleeves, then a couple of inches of body and make sure everything is fitting properly before I go on.

And I recorded several chapters today! I did a couple of the horrid Letters of Two Brides (I hate Louise and hope she comes to a bad end, asap), and my chapter of Heidi in German, and a chapter of my children’s history book. Woohoo!

    Louise can be sort of selfish and horrid..I’m sorry you’re not liking reading the book! I feel awful! I really like how it all comes together in the end…I’ll be interested to hear what you think when it’s all over.

    Oh, don’t feel bad! Not your fault I don’t like it! There’s probably something wrong with me — Balzac is so famous, there must be something good about him, heheh. I’ll keep slogging through :)
