For real? I mean really.
This is my Aleita Shell, which is almost done. I stopped just short of done b/c I am worried that the armhole length is too long, so I left the top unfinished to make it easier to rip out & take a few rows off if need be. It's also inside out, which is really neither here nor there, I just didn't think to turn it right side out before I dunked it in the water.
In general, I'm really happy with it at this point. The yarn is lovely to work with, soft & shiny - it's Sirdar Snuggly Baby Bamboo.
I KNOW these are all the same dye lot. There is no question about it at all. I can only hope that they will dry to be the same color once again. If not, I can only be glad that the spot in question is at the bottom and while I will not relish the idea of cutting the bottom off, ripping out the stitches, and knitting down in a matchier skein, I prefer that than it being one of the skeins in the middle.
Fingers crossed, maybe it will dry normal. If I don't have to redo the shoulders OR the bottom, I should have an FO pic for you soon.
It is blocking on my new blocking board - I picked these up at target, I think it came in a pack that will make a 4'x6' grid, so hopefully it will even be large enough to block a circular shawl. And they break up and slide right under a chair - an easy hiding solution - a must for city living!
The dogs and I just got caught in one of those sideways torrential downpours on the way back from the vet. They were dripping. I was dripping. My shoes are squishing. I had an umbrella, how is my hair soaking wet? And do people NOT realize they are drenching you when they drive through large puddles on city streets? These are the kind of questions I may never get answered.
Duke had to get IV fluids put in under his skin b/c he was dehydrated (he had lost two lbs since last friday - that's 10% of his body weight). He is off food & water overnight and I have doggie drugs to give him instead of the kaopectate. The vet thinks that should do it. I certainly hope it does.
Yesterday I started test knitting a little nothing for Anne in Sundara Fingering in Burnt Cranberry - from the last seasons club. It doesn't look like much yet, but I have high hopes for it!
