Ready. Set. KNIT!

Stopped off at LYS to pick up some additional Brown Sheep yarn for the Fuzzy Feet Felt Along for Martin’s cuff. I ended up buying 2 skeins plus some Crystal Palace Splash to make a pair (or 2) for myself.

Got the pattern printed. Getting ready to cast on now. Question now is … who’s slippers get first dibs?

My new digital camera shipped today. There’s a chance that I can take the before pictures with it!

9:45 pm: I swatched the Brown Sheep. I need to use US size 11 (8mm) to get the gauge. Good thing too, since I only have size 11 double points at home, and the stores are closed by now.

Casting on Amethyst (M-62) as cuff for Martin.

10:30 pm: I probably will get more done on the slippers than I originally targeted for tonight. The pager and cell phone have been going crazy. This month-end close is definitely not going as well as it should. I’ll be up for at least another hour or so. I should be able to turn the heel by the time I head to bed. (Lots of hurry up and wait.)

11:40 pm: Well, that’s probably it for the night. Didn’t get as much done as I hoped, since I had to rip out the heel flap because I forgot to switch to the main color (Dark Charcoal). I’m back on the heel flap, but definitely won’t be able to turn the heel tonight. But pretty decent progress none the less.

Good night all!
