a long drive

Thursday, June 2, 2005

This morning we all left the house early and we left together. This is a pretty rare occurrence in this house, the only precedent is the daily family outing to the fertility clinic we were doing last month. Today’s outing was much more fun that that! We drove all the way out to Penrith to pick up one of these and this:

I am so excited it’s just silly. Along the way I all but finished the green scarf, this is what I have left to knit:

Green lace scarf, nearly done

So tonight I will knit two more rows, cast off the scarf and then immediately cast on for the Debbie Bliss Cabled Jacket. What no swatch? Nope, no swatch, despite using different yarn. This jacket is one size fits all (most?) and I fall exactly in the middle of the size range, which gives me about twelve and a half inches of ease. I am actually hoping that it comes out a bit small (just a tiny bit).

This is gorgeous yarn, I was ogling this sweater at my LYS the other day, one day I will have the skills and confidence to attempt this type of sweater, it is my ultimate goal, LOL! Congrats on nearly (probably finished by now) finishing your mom’s scarf!

Oh, I love that Jo Sharp yarn. I made a sweater in it for my best friend a few years ago, and I still covet it!
