I hate those photos… I rarely find all of the differences. At any rate, I just want to know if you can see a difference between the boucle and the regular yarn in the Omega Wrap.
The Knight and I decided last night that I need several rows of the boucle for it to show up as different. Can you even tell?! I only care because I don’t enjoy knitting with the boucle, and if it’s wasted effort… Sigh.
In happier news, two packages were on the porch. One was from Amazon, Wrap Style. I did order the book, and I want it, but I’m eagerly awaiting my Knitpicks order and ANOTHER book. The good news is that while I wait another day or two for that book, I can finish up my Omega Wrap and be ready to start the Bigfoot Shawl right away!
My package from The Loopy Ewe also arrived today. I scored some of the Malabrigo laceweight, and I got some of the kid mohair to try another Dog Paw scarf with the suggested material. There’s also more Soak and some kitchner dog tags, for the day when my fickle needles return to socks.
(Wanted: a good excuse to cast on with the Malabrigo, like I don’t have enough projects in my queue already.)
In other happy news, a couple of my parcels from Wednesday’s big ship-out have found their marks. Amy got her Pay it Forward gift, and seems pleased. I knew she’d love the colorway, but I’m delighted that the whole shawl suits her! Nichole also got her wrap, and was even more delighted than I anticipated. So, my Pay it Forward knitting is done, but I’ve enjoyed it enough that I intend to continue to surprise my friends when I find a pattern and/or a yarn that calls out to them, as was the case with the modified Dog Paw scarf I sent to Michelle.
We now return to the knitting already in progress. Let the weekend begin! I do believe my weekend holds some fun and hopefully, an FO, so come back soon!
