OK, you are all pretty bad on helping me keep my resolve to not buy yarn. I think every single person that commented told me to buy the laceweight! But I didn’t. I’m still putting it in the cart – everyday – but I haven’t ordered it yet. Trying to be strong. Sigh….
I woke up this morning at 5:45 a.m. On a Saturday. Sigh. But although I was a little tired, I also had a chance to finish up the Jitterbug anklets for Cieara.
Pattern: My own
Yarn: Colinette Jitterbug, colorway Jewel
Needles: US 1
I love anklets! These were very fast – and very mindless. I took my basic sock pattern – did a 60 stitch cast on, 10 rows of K1P1 ribbing, then 10 rows of stockinette before I did the heel flap.
I really do think Jitterbug is great yarn – it is really unfortunate that it just doesn’t have the yardage. I know that people have made full pairs of socks with one skein, but judging from what I had left over, I wouldn’t have enough for a pair for me (I have big feet!) unless I buy two skeins. I have two other single skeins in the stash, so Cieara will be getting more of these!
I took off work yesterday – it was a very long week. Things are not going well at work, and there is a lot of negativity being displayed towards me, so it has been difficult to be there. It was really touch and go whether I’d go back next week, but I do want to do this the right way. So I’ll go back – but I’ve decided that if it continues or gets worse, I’ll just end it. I don’t know why people have to be like this – I’ve never had this happen before when I’ve left a job, and it is really ugly. But I had planned on taking yesterday off, so I did – and had a good day with Larry which made up for the crappy week. We went golfing, had dinner out – very nice day, and very relaxing.
Today I have a golf lesson, and need to do some shopping for my Knit One, Tea Too swap patner. No other plans than that, so I am really looking forward to relaxing and spending time with Larry and Cieara. It is going to be a beautiful weekend here in the Northeast – more summer than fall. Tomorrow we are planning on golfing (what else?) – and I should have another FO for you by Monday!
Have a great weekend!
