Okay, so this like totally made my day: Miss Lime, from the Lime & Violet podcast, e-mailed me back! I’ve been grinning all day. I feel like I’ve been in contact with a celebrity or something. I mean, I know, not many non-knitters know who she is, but… !!!
Oh and Brenda Dayne. We all worship her. *nods*
And then, to make my day even better, Lisa from Lisa Souza Knitwear and Dyeworks e-mailed me a little bit later on to tell me she’s shipping my yarn tomorrow! Squeeeeee!!
So yes, I did wind up buying two skeins from Lisa Souza. I can’t wait to have it. =D
What else.. well, more knitting news: I’ve begun working on the Isabella pattern from http://www.knitty.com (current issue) in this really lovely baby pink 100% cotton yarn. Okay, so there is no way that I will go back to using 100% acrylic now that I’ve had a taste of the good natural stuff. Well, I mean I’ll still use whatever I’m given and I’ll use up everything I’ve got in my stash (oh boy has that grown! Scary… o.O). I blame these knitting podcasts. They’re enablers. But, stash! How on earth am I going to get it all back with me?
Oh, and now I want to try out spinning. Miss Lime and Miss Violet and Brenda all do it, so I feel like I need to do it too. Bandwagon jumping anyone?
Anyway. Had an exam yesterday. Totally drained me, but at least it’s over. It was ridiculously hot in the room, but that’s what you get for holding a lit class in the Fine Arts building. Our classroom btw, always smells funny. I think it’s due to all of the art stuff that’s being created there. It’s the smell of creativity/imagination. Must be.
Get to see Oliver next week. Squee!
Oh, he’s another enabler. I have spent so much money! -_-;;
But I still love him. ^_^
Okay, I want to do four more rows before I go to bed, so I’ll stop here.
