I am really enjoying knitting with Opera 10. The down size is it is very drying on the hands. It is the same as when you do a lot of quilting the cotton seems to dry out the finger tips. I usually knit with wool and don't have this problem. I have bottles of non sticky hand lotion next to every spot I sit to knit..*smile
I was "window" shopping on ColourMart. Dumm dee dumm dumm. O.K. so it was an incredible buy even I could afford. Even with the money order it was around $40 Canadian for TWO cones of merino cobweight -2plies- 1 ply cobweb weight ...are you ready for this???????? The colour is "starry sky" Not Black. Not Navy. But the darkest deep blue. Stunning!! The Queen pattern hasn't arrived yet!..sigh It will be two weeks (Tomorrow) that he said he mailed it out to me. I am gifting it to "Self."
She has had a bad month and I promised to be nicer her.
(Works for me)
Confession time. I have "90 -%-eye-tis." Read it phonetically. I did the same thing with the red coat and now Matt's sweater is sitting her waiting for me to sew it up. I got wrapped up in the tea cloth. Procrastination gallops through my family. I commit to finishing the skull BEFORE I even test swatch the new wool. I am so strong. Stand in awe of my resolve.
