Back on Track

Thanks to all who posted words of sympathy and encouragement. (Not to mention offers of chocolate and booze!) Things are much better now. I found myself some yarn that is much better suited to the project, and which is a lot easier to work with. Don't get me wrong - the Sea Silk is dead sexy - this stole just wasn't its destiny.

Also, I found someone in my Rav group to help me figure out how to carry the yarn when I switch skeins...(thanks, Damselfly!) Now I can do the thing properly, and not worry about weird things happening with colour changes, working from 3 skeins of variegated yarn.

I survived the madness of the belated boxing day sale at our LYS...yikes! It was a madhouse, and then some. Enough that I may pass on the next one. Which says something! Photos of chaos (and pretty yarn, and my sassy new knitting bag) to follow soon...

Hopefully I'll get the new stole started tonight, and post pics of that, too.

Happy Monday!
(again...groan)

I've been away since Christmas visiting family so I'm a little out of the loop. I had to go back and read the post before this one to figure out what happened. OH my how frustrating but I'm glad to hear you have it all straightened out now. :) I can't wait to see the pictures from the LYS Boxing Day sale. I didn't go to mine mostly because I was sick. Airplanes tend to make you sick I've found. lol

Ah, Monday again. Glad your knitting is working out, and that you have new happy yarn and bag. Fibery goodness always makes Mondays better.

Glad you have survived the yarn story, and so how do you do that switch, is it on damselfly's blog, and do you go to techknitting blog, she is a major knitting genius and I usually go there for problems...

I get like that too about big sales. And unfortunately, it seems that big crowds are EVERYWHERE here in New York. It makes me want to stay home and order everything on-line --at full price, I guess.
