I skipped Stitch and Bitch last night, and instead I went and checked out our new Hobby Lobby. I was hoping they would have a wide selection of colors of Wool-Ease (which I'm making future SIL Abby's wedding afghan out of)--I found two of the three colors I needed at Hancock, but that last color is proving elusive. Well, it turned out that Hobby Lobby doesn't even carry worsted weight Wool-Ease. Rats! So I had to buy some knitting needles and some more cotton yarn, 'cause I don't have nearly enough of either. I've got one more place to check in Lexington, and then I'm planning to make the rounds of the GB retailers while I'm there (in a week! Yay!); hopefully purple is a more popular--and hence available--yarn color up North.
I put aside my big projects for the evening yesterday, and worked on some fish.
On the left, we see what happens when I run out of grey yarn mid-fish. And on the right... Well, I don't really have an explanation for that lopsided tail. Maybe it's just stretched out funny.
I also finally took a decent picture of my recycled sari silk purse, which I have renamed "Sow's Ear," because that's the name that keeps popping into my head. Not very original, but there you have it.
As you can see, I put something into it, because without that you couldn't really tell where the opening was. It just looked like a colorful blob. It's coming along nicely.
Finally, on Monday I un-Kitchenered the toe of my Dublin Bay sock and managed to get it back on the needles without dropping any stitches. Now all I have to do is add a few inches, redo the toe, and hope it fits Mom!
