Had a quiet morning messing about on the chunky knitting machine, and getting some laundry done...
Day started sunny but has gradually gone downhill - got one load dry, but the other has gone into the tumble dryer. It's quite chilly out there today!
Have swatched the Peaches n' creme cotton - it's the worsted weight in "strawberries and cream" shade. About a DK to the Englishters. Did them at T3 and T4 - T4 was a lot easier to knit, and looks about the same. Might wash the swatch, see if it gets any softer.
Also, another Lizard Ridge square - this is my new favourite, I think. I especially like the pink bits!
The neon jumper of luridness is now just past the half-way point, thank goodness. The Emily hat is stalled, but not far off completion, and the lace knitting so far has half a first repeat on it. I have to admit maybe lace knitting is too much for someone with a full time job, who is tired and fractious in the evenings. But I won't be giving up, no way! It just might take a little longer than my usual easy projects. It's about time I had a challenge, anyway!
The Cog and I are off to see "Pirates of the Carribean 3" later, and then going for a meal at the local Indian restaurant. I love long weekends!
Current mood: happy
