In a hilarious scene, a worker called for "code-1 assistance" to the loading bay one. He sounded really fired up about it, but he shouldn't have. It was only code-1. Hee hee. Code-1.
Now onto the FO-IPs!
1. Clapotis from knitty. Here she is so far. Made in a super-soft, super-pretty purple, turquoise, cornflower varigated yarn. I cannot wait for this to be one, I really am excited by it.
2. Hat in progress for the boy. Yes, despite his hatred of "expensive" technology, he gets a hat. It will have the black mage as promised, probably in duplicate stitch. It's a roll-up brim in 3x2 rib stitch, which is why it looks horrendously long. It's in Knitpicks "coal" colorway of the wool of the andes. Here is a good example of why I need a new camera. Extreme close-ups of the knitting are not always good.
3. Fancy, fancy, I-can't-believe-I-acutally-bought-this yarn. It was on sale, too- baaaad idea! Louisa Harding Impression, in a gorgeous purple and blue colorway. Yeah, it's a ribbon yarn, with a mohair thrown in to make you swoon. It reminds me of van Gogh paintings and makes me happy every time I see it. In case you are wondering, here's the differences in the colorways. This is going to be either a new clapotis (it's what I originally wanted to buy), or a very fancy lace stole. Haven't found a good pattern yet, though.
So far, that's all I got. I made a list of the stash. The list is long. The stash is good.
