Read all about it
So I opened the little box where all the Fibonacci yarn resides last night, with the intention of casting on that second sleeve. (Nothing quite so inspirational as unpinning the first from the blocking board -- I like it!) I don't know if I can describe my surprise when I found that not only had I already cast on, but I was at least 30 rows in -- the striping color changes, the increases, the row counter keeping track --the whole ball of wax! When in the hell did that happen? How could I forget something like that?
I ripped out the Lovely Lace picot edge yesterday -- it was kinda wonky. That kind of thing happens when you don't read the directions 'til you're already several rows in and then decide to do something different and do so by winging it. It looked good for the most part, but was all twisty in other parts. I'm definitely going to try again, this time with a provisional cast-on so I can tack that edge down nice and straight.
Did you know that Cadbury eggs came this small? Have you ever seen more beautiful and elegant stitchmarkers? I've been threatening to attach earring wires! This is a portion of a fun parcel from Yarnivorous Lynne in Australia that arrived in my mailbox the other day. Go look -- she has some absolutely gorgeous pictures today. There is more -- the chocolate and jewels had to have some fibery padding! -- but I have other things to share, and show, and tell along with it, so it shall wait for a little bit to shine. Meanwhile, *mwah* and thank you, Lynne.
