You didn’t ask, but it makes me just a bit melancholy to think about all those brokers that are broke. Can’t happen to a nicer bunch of folks in my humble opinion.
To take my mind off the financial news, I’ve had a busy week knitting. First I finished Mr Greenjeans. It’s blocked and buttoned and ready to wear. This is not an over statement — I love this sweater. i was a bit worried because raglan sleeves can fall off my shoulders. But this one fits nicely. The yarn is Berroco’s Ultra Alpaca, and it makes me look like a better knitter than I am — the stitches look so even. It is so soft, it already has cat hair on it. The color of this photo is a bit off — it is more denim blue than bright blue.
And Thursday was First Thursday at Hill Country Weavers, and it caused a stampede at the store — 20% off all yarn. My purchases? Two skeins of Lornas Laces Shepherd Sock, and two skeins of Manos silk blend.
Guess what color I was wearing?
And then today, the mailman delivered this from Amazon. What a great way to start the weekend. I have to go now.
