I have been looking at my yarns for Arachne
and thinking that the gray is not quite what I was dreaming of for this project. I am looking for something a little more blingy, just for the spiderweb part of the pattern. Then I remembered one of my LYSs had some yarn with sparkle in what I hoped was the right weight. When I got there, not only did they have the yarn I remembered, it had just gone on sale for 40% off! Score!
Better! That’s what I was thinking of! And I got some extra, because I keep thinking about doing a little webbing on the sleeves too. Plus now Sarah has me thinking about pockets lined with colorwork spiders!
I am so looking forward to this KAL – everyone has such different ideas for how they want their sweater to turn out, and they will all be gorgeous!
Now for the whiny part. On Tuesday, this came to the house
DH opened the envelope for me and sent me a pic of my badge, and we were talking about all our Seattle plans. He was going to come along with me next week and relax while I was in classes, and we had dinner and activity plans for the evenings and the day we got there.
Then Thursday this came out
I absolutely get why they did this, but still. It is very disappointing. I have been looking forward to this event for a while now. I was registered for some interesting classes and lectures. So we cancelled our trip, because we can use those vacation days for something else now that the main reason we were traveling is gone. That mostly worked out OK except for an airline cancellation fee we got whacked for. So sorry for the whining, but I just had to let it out. Now I am done, and thanks for bearing with me!
Anyway – tomorrow, sock progress report!
