Visa's sent off

I sent our Visas off yesterday. Yes, it should have been done last month, but it's very difficult to get a straight answer from anybody.

I also got my first pair of glasses yesterday. For the majority of my life I've had clear vision, and not having to squint to read signs is what I emotionally actually associate with my vision, so it feels as if I'm wearing fake glasses, just the rims but with no glass.

As far as yarn store news, we had a huge shipment of encore and have restocked on bamboo.

Nothing of importance to report about my knitted projects, but I might be changing the sweater pattern yet again.

Summer Sweater?

Yes, I am working on my sister's sweater right now. No, it's not a summer sweater, though it is made out of Encore, so it's not as silly as knitting a wool sweater at this heat.

I haven't gotten as much done as I would have liked, but this is mostly due to the fact that when my hand start sweating I stick to the yarn.

I already have two thirds of the front done, and a third of the back done. I've decided to work up to the sleeve decreases on both sides, then do them at the same time.

Mom's table cloth is coming along, as I said last week (or was it two weeks ago already?) it's growing exponentially, so each row is taking longer and longer to complete.

New yarn!

I literally squealed when I opened a package and saw this:

Merino sock yarn by Rio de la Plata

Natch! I immediately grabbed a skein of blue for myself and lamented the fact that I didn't have any #1 DPs in my knitting bag. About an hour later someone bought two skeins of blue, and I knew I had to put mine back. The sacrifices I need to make for the store...

We also have a new color of their hand-spun.

And ... a nice arrangement of bright Cotton Licous. I'm want to do a diagonal striped (so there won't be any threads to carry along in the back and snag on the baby's fingers) with the light purple and white (we do have white and black, it just didn't in the pic). Just watch, someone's going to buy my yarn ...
