Yay for stripes!I've been working on several projects this week. Given up on my socks for the moment (had some twisting issues and several bits of frogging) so I've been spending time with other things. Still working on Harry Potter. Just a couple more rows and then I'll be ready to seal the ends and add the fringe. Also working on my Project Spectrum PDA case in orange. It's just a rectangle right now, but I'll post a pic once I sew the seems and put on the handle. I've been spending most of my time working on my laptop case. Isn't it fun?
The colors are brighter in person. I love the random stripes. It makes it fun to look at and fun to knit because I'm always changing yarn. This is my first time using Lamb's Pride and I love it. It's got just enough mohair to make it nice and soft so it doesn't dry out my hands like Nature Spun. And it knits up beautifully. I hear it felts well too; we'll see when I'm done with this case.
I just found out this morning that I have an apartment! I've been so worried about moving in June because everyone I talked to when I went up to MA a few weeks ago had no availabilities. "Check back in May," is what they kept telling me. I really wanted to have something lined up before graduation...and now I do! A great 2 bedroom in downtown Northampton. And it's a 2 minute walk to a LYS! That could be dangerous. But I'm so excited! Just wanted to celebrate a little.
