The cure for the "I didn't get the job" blues?
I'm about 12 rows into it, and so far things are going well. Winding the yarn into a ball almost killed me, though--I need to check my mad money level and see how close I am to buying a swift. It didn't help that the yarn was slightly felted in places in the hank. I ended up doing way more work with my left arm than I would have liked to.
Anyway, I'm using the laceweight I picked up in the last SnB free-for-all. It's shades of russet with a little bit of silvery grey. I'm hoping that the color changes aren't so drastic that the pattern gets lost. It's looking fine so far--phew!
I don't have pictures today; maybe tomorrow.
