Well, I'm happy! The grass is actually sprouting nice green shoots!
Yesterday, I boldly headed into the Naked Sheep for "something springy". Oh hush. I know, I know, I need more yarn like a hole in the head blah blah blah. Heard it all before. I just turn up the volume on my MP3 to drown out the sound.
So...this Noro sock yarn has a funky texture. Kind of thicky/thiny and string-like. Not at all smooth. Should make for some interesting knitting... I think I'll start a pair using the OnLine orangey/blue/pink/really bright coloured yarn resting behind it. I don't know. When it comes to sock yarn, I'm not too familiar with the different types, but I'll tell you, the Noro doesn't look like it'll hold up to much ripping. And if there's something I know - it's ripping out socks.
After paying for those 2 balls of sock yarn, and calculating that they will be the most expensive pairs of socks I'll probably EVER own, I resisted roaming the rest of the store. Besides, the Captain was waiting for me outside, with a glazed over look in his eyes.
So, my journey into the world of sock knitting continues.
Oh, and by the way, the most-expensive sock yarn in my sock yarn stash is resting on the completed body of Columbia. I've started the sleeves, and who knows? Another FO? At some point.
My cute little Nordic Sweetheart hat! Resting on a dozey Gandalf (yes, His Looniness does relax the odd time)... I'm so happy with it! I've only had a chance to wear it once, and most likely won't be able to until next winter. Which is fine.
So, did you read about Chris' review of gluten-free beers?
Well. Let me tell you! How happy was I to read that my favourite delivery pizza now offers GLUTEN-FREE pizza crust!? Very, very happy. (OK, so there's an extra fee, but I can live with that.)
Pizza is one of my favourite foods. Of all time. Forever and ever. And ever. And that I can now order it with a gluten-free crust? Brings a tear to my eye...
It's a very good thing.
