Yesterday, I met Chris for lunch before going to my knitting group. She mentioned that she had been to Michaels and had bought some Cotton Ease – I had heard about this yarn, but never saw it. It was so soft! So between lunch and knitting group, we snuck over to Michaels and I bought some…
This is Cece – which calls for DK weight yarn. Cotton Ease is a light worsted. Sort of the same, right? (Anyone having flashbacks to the pirate hat?). I did a gauge swatch, though – and I think its going to be fine. Although as I typed that, I got a little nervous. Did that just tempt the knitting gods? Nah – I do think its going to be fine.
I love Cotton Ease. I know, its Lion Brand. And its so not cool. But I really like the yarn – nice, light – just pretty. I think I may get more for another project (summer Ariann?). And I’m loving the pattern – really – I love it!. I’m actually smiling as I knit it – always a good sign (does anyone else get the sense that I’m now going out of my way to tempt the knitting gods?).
I haven’t said anything before this, but tomorrow my oldest son, Dan starts a new job. At the same place I work. We will be taking the train in together. He’s very excited and nervous (and I have to admit – so am I!). He also – wait…..looked at an apartment today! Yea! He needs to call back and tell the landlord he wants to rent and then he is on his way. I’m so proud of him.
Duncan is running around like he normally does (as much as a old, overweight dog runs around that is), so we are really hoping that it was just a sprain. Thanks for all the good thoughts!
So at the end of a nice weekend all is well in my world – new project for me, new life for Dan, new spring in his step for Duncan. Hope all is well in your world too!
