Three things I'm thinking about today:
:: how knitting a sweater is hard work for this instant gratification lover. Still working on those sleeves. Tempted to start a side project, but I'm not sure I want to. I'm usually a one project girl and when I do start several projects at once most of the time I end up working on just one and frogging the rest.
:: why I never realized that sweater dresses (still love the one I made a while ago) and leggings would make the comfiest winter uniform? I wore it a lot since we came back and would love to have more of them. But knitting a wardrobe full of those for the short periods of time we'll spend in real winter weather after our move to Curacao seems silly.
(I'm absolutely not thinking about all the hiccups we're encountering to actually make that move happen - nope, not me)
:: the color choices I made for the Mystery Knitalong. Not sure about the third one (the one on top in the picture below). The instructions say it should be variegated or speckled yarn and it can be a crazy accent/pop color with not much in common with the rest. I had a limited choice, limited time and a limited budget, so this was the best I could do. There was another yarn that was much more crazy and popping, but um... too crazy and popping to my taste. It's hard to see in the pictures, but this one has green and pink in it, which does make it different from the other three.
Anyway, we'll see how this works out. First clue will be online tomorrow. Oh wait, there's my side project. Didn't realize that until I wrote this down. Ha!
Also: I do feel a bit guilty about buying these yarns in a cheap textile store while the whole thing was set up to honor local yarn store day. But a. we don't have a lys around here; b. the only one I know of is not a shop I was very excited about after visiting it a few years ago and c. I really don't have the budget for it right now - never do actually. But... I googled for yarn stores in this region and found one in Rotterdam that I really do want to visit someday, preferably with (a lot of) spending money. So that's something, I guess.
