Man oh man did Monday come too soon. Work was just peachy and I didn't have to work overtime. I did stay at Mom's for a bit though. She had corn on the cob on the stove. I had to gobble 2 ears before heading home with the kid.
I spent the afternoon swatching. I've decided to make the Peacock Lace sweater from Great Big Knits. I love love this book and it's predecessor Big Knits. Sure I wish that there were multiple sizes, but at least the one size is big enough that I don't have to alter the pattern.
The pattern calls for Rowan Handknit DK Cotton. Ummmm welllll I don't have any. I do have two cones of Schuss-Plus DK wool. The pattern calls for US size 6 needles. I had to go down to freakin size 2s. I've cast on for the back and I have to use US 1s. Gaaaaahhhhhhhh
But I have gauge. Sort of. hehehe It's close enough when you take in consideration the oversized fit of the sweater. I will be measuring lots as I'm going along to make sure that it doesn't end up being absolutely huge. hehe
BTW: Look down. Like my new divider? I think it's just the cutest. I got it from Tara. I didn't realize it until today, but she has started a blog to share her graphics. She has lots of cute stuff there to snag.
Anyways, I'm off to finish the edging on the sweater and then I'm hittin the sack.
