  • Mood:

>_<;; Oh my...

Well, despite the female sibling unit's attempts to keep my Visa from wailing, we ended up going to m1 afterall. I told her I needed to get some DPNs so she acquiesced to going. And as expected from their stock list, there was little in the way of fuzzies for me to pick up... and so I got deluged by the attack of the pattern lover instead. >_<;; Okay, granted some most of those patterns are for me. ^^;; I picked up a couple of Fiddlesticks patterns, and am hoping to use today's yarn purchase on the Lily of the Valley stole.

The FSU however, wanted this cardigan, and has so far attempted to start it twice now. The first time was with a merino wool yarn, the second with an acrylic. I think she's going to try finding some Snuggly or other softer & lighter baby yarn to try the pattern out on. In the meantime, I've been going through White Lies site as well as some others looking for some nice closures and shawl pins for her. I don't think we have any as yet, but then, so far, none of my shawls are large enough to require an actual closure like that.

Yarnwise, the girl at the shop told me that they have more Andrea's yarn in a shipment that's currently trapped at the border. It's anyone's guess when it'll come in therefore, but... the shop's a royal pain for me to go to readily. (Actually, just about all the yarn shops are in distant or awkward locations). Shall see if we trek out that way again once the shipment arrives or if it'll be hit/miss again. >_<;

And while at m1, I picked up still more stitch markers. I seem to be in a pretty bauble mood lately as I picked up some more "everyday" stitch markers from the Elegant Knitter. I'm still not sure if I like these markers as they're sterling silver and I'm afraid they'll tarnish. If they do... >_<;;

And since we have no cables for our Denise needles, I yanked two shawls off the needles. One was the Tri-Aran shawl and the other MS2 take 2. I still want to yank MS3 off the needles and restart it as well. It's been hanging around for so long, I suspect my tension will be completely out now (or I may have dropped stitches by now). I've made serious negative progress today. ^^;; But I restarted the Ethereal Fichu with the Andrea's Yarn, and I really don't know if I like this pattern or not. It casts on stitches compared to the DFS which casts stitches off for the pointy lace edging. I love the look and feel of the yarn though. ^_^ The girl at the shop tells me that a couple of people returned their Andrea's yarn because it was troublesome and hard to work with. I will admit, it was a royal pain to ball, but it's been fine since. Just... no give. >_<; For whatever reason, I didn't give them my colour wishlist today. Oh well.

Tomorrow, hopefully I'll have a moment free to run out to Future Shop or Best Buy. By the time I'd mentioned it, we'd missed the turnoff so we didn't go today. I need new headphones for the computer. Mine died unexpectedly on Saturday. ^^;; FWIW, Saiunkoku 9's translation will have to wait until I get new headphones... unless I strip something else of it's headset. ^^

And of course, tomorrow should see some news about the latest FB chapter. If there aren't any scans by then, I'll see about hitting the "kansou" sites. ^^;; Anyhow, bed. I've some pattern drooling to do and colour planning. ^^;
