Poor Ulysses. I wouldn't let him play with my needles so he took a nap. But I was able to finish my first 14 rows of knitting EVER! Yay!!! I even changed colors. No disasters so far, but it's early still. 8 rows of purple and 6 rows of the next color block of tan/ash (which is a total of 52 rows)... thankfully I bought a counter because I'd lose count so fast...
I should have been doing homework but I did this instead. Bad bad grad student...
Yay!! My first package of yarn arrived today from Woolworks. They were the only place that had the green I needed in stock. Of course, the other store that "had" all the others was out of this and now it turns out is out of a few colors I ordered from them. They said they should have some in within the week. I hope so, I'm itching to get started!!
It won't be in in time for the start of the Knit Along, but that's okay. I should be doing homework and class related things, but since I'm too poor and strapped for time to cosplay or even make a Halloween costume this year (boo!), this is my excuse to remain cosplay...ey? Timey-wimey? Wot?
Sorry... it's really really slow at the reference desk right now. Library school readings are boring my head off right now so I'm blogging instead of doing homework.
I'll post pics when I get the yarn. I had to order from two different places because one was out of one of the colours. Figures, huh?
Sigh.. back to readings on Evaluation of Library Collections and Services... ::dies::
Now to go buy some yarnage... there is a cool yarn store here in town but I'm a little intimidated to go in there. I hate going into stores that are empty, especially when I'm not really sure what I'm doing (oh yeah, did I mention my knitting prowess consists of little squares that never end up square?). They have lots and lots of pretty colors. I found some of the colors online, but of course, one is out of stock. D'oh!
I figure with a whole group attempting it, it'll at least be fun even if I mess up :)
Here's a Progress Bar to keep track of... we're at 0% right now... LOL
