I bought yarn.
Except the Kureyon! But I figured for once I ordered online, I just couldn't wait any longer..!! ;-)
Which leads me to a question. I really love the cardi on the cover of the Debbie Bliss "Noro collection 1" book. But it seems the book's discontinued. Any chance someone would have a copy they no longer want (yeah, dream on !!), or know of a place where you could buy one for me ? (paypal or swap). You know, just asking...
I'm nearly halfway with the red mohair crossover. (don't think it was a smart move to photograph red on pink though, oversaturated the whole thing!) Goes really fast, but I just haven't spent much time on it lately. Prune 's been really sick since thursday (high fever without any other obvious symptoms, I ended up going to the doctor 3 times in a week!! much better today though). Also, I realised even plain stockinette but with a few decreases or a super simple chart to follow is hard to concentrate on when she's around.. !
So anyhow, I managed the back, right front and a half sleeve so far. Although I'll have to redo the top of the back. Messed up the instructions: when they said decrease for armholes on every row at beg. of row, I assumed it did mean dec. on every row. Wrong. So okay, I now realise what they meant, but still...
Oh, and I told you about my friend anouchka coming the other day..? Guess what. She left with the leftover tibetan yarn for a yoke vest, and all the gear for it !!!! Apparently she also plans on making several other projects from the book... Hehe, another convert !!! ;-)
Heh, your friend's name is Anouchka; my name is Anushka. (Same name, different spelling :) )
