Not an original title, but fitting.
Sticking with my New Years resolutions, I am putting myself first and I am officially cutting ties with the girls. This is sad in a sense as I've known them my entire life it seems. Saturday, I was suppose to have a nice brunch with the girls, and well, you know, the best laid plans of mice & men...
It was painfully obvious that our friendship has run it's course. Like ripping off a band-aid, it hurts at first but then the pain subsides and like with any break-up, you focus on the good times, quietly ignoring the bad, and you think, maybe, just maybe you made a mistake, but when push comes to shove, you know it's the right thing.
c'est la vie
I'm almost done with my first picot sock. I love it!!! BMFA Puck's Mischief is such a great colorway, the only pooling I have so far is at the gusset (i think) otherwise it's lovely and stripey.
I have 3 skeins of Noro in my stash & 8 skeins of Casscade Eco wool in a lovely cream color. I have 1 of 2 options, being that I really would like to make the girls each a blanket for Christmas, (and the one I want to make frankly I can't afford to), I have been noticing the mitered crosses here there and everywhere. It won't take that much Noro for the crosses and I can use the Eco for the border. Maybe?
Plus that means I'll have an excuse to get new yarn for my Francis Revisited. Win-win I'd say.
