At loose ends...
You know you're not quite right in the head when you are experiencing a bit of the November doldrums and call your husband at work and have the following conversation:
Me: Can I buy an I-Phone, just to make myself feel better?
Him: Ummm, no. Retail therapy doesn't work.
Me: Oh but it truly does...
Him: I love you.
Me: I like you too.
Yeah, I'm a wench, it can't be helped. I was a homecoming queen in the 1980's named Heather (for real), so I'm used to things going my way. But apparently not this time. Oh well. At least I managed to obtain the above pictured Hazel Knits 'Sailor's Delight' sock yarn (my new fave) before finding out that 'retail therapy doesn't work'. Then again I am dealing with the person whose personal motto is "...any day that I'm not dragged into the street out of my bed and beat into a bloody pulp by the State is a good day."
This was supposed to be a triumphant 'I finished my Cobblestone, y'all!' post, but instead it's a 'how long is this freaking yoke going to take?' post. I'd show you the picture, but I am not sure that looking at an inchoate mess of Classic Elite Skye Tweed would really do much for you. Jared, I love you, but the whole purling thing is really not helping this knitter's blues.
Luckily I started a frothy, side-dish of a project that I am enjoying, mainly because I simply can't wait to get to the pompon and do the Kate Gilbert tutorial! Elliphantom's Herringbone Mittens are proving to be a real gas and a major stash buster.
I'm using some Cascade 220 that I have repurposed (remember the whole argyle socks in-the-round fiasco?). I know that the whole Chocqua thing is played out at this point, so I promise this is the last iteration of it you'll see chez A.D.D.
