Rusted root now officially has sleeves!
I’m about 45 repeats into the pattern, so now I’m at the part where I just measure for length. I just started ball #3, and I have 7, so hopefully I should have just enough. I haven’t had any real problems except for one stitch that went missing on one of the sleeves. I saw what I thought was a dropped stitch, so I went to fix it and suddenly it disappeared. I tugged all over the place, but nothing’s unraveling, so hopefully it was an illusion brought on by too much knitting tonight.
Also: my cat is insane. Lately he’s taken to sleeping on top of my shoes.
It’s cute, but I can’t imagine that it’s comfortable. He has good taste in shoes though! I got those shoes last week at the Zappos.com distribution center. All their returned shoes go on the racks for 20 bucks a pair. It’s the most awesome thing ever.
My hands are aching tonight. Last night I made risotto, and I think the constant stirring did my wrists in a little bit. When you combine that with the fact that I’m a pianist for a living, and my hobbies are embroidery and knitting, you have trouble. I’ve been pretty lucky so far – minor tendonitis, which is normal in pianists, but nothing more major.
My knitpicks order taunts me. Damn you, sortation center! I want my mainline! I realized after my order had shipped that I should have bought another skein of gloss in concord, because I want to make a long lace scarf. If you haven’t tried gloss yet… mmm, it’s just the softest sock yarn. I don’t even make socks, but I’m totally into it.
Tomorrow has been designated for me to find all my winter clothes/shoes and take my coats to the cleaners. I’m scared to open the storage boxes, I have to tell you.
