Knitting Along

Alison made me do it. I've been waiting for an opportunity to do a knit-along, and this one happened to coincide with my first trip to my new LYS here in Brookline.

Short version of last two weeks: Jason and I moved out of New York to Brookline [just outside of Boston] at the end of June. I'm here for an indeterminate amount of time [until I get a job], but it only took me about 3.5 seconds to locate the closest yarn store to our new digs. We've been working so hard on fixing up the new place that Jason mandated a trip as a reward for my help. I obliged, of course. ;)

I'll be casting on for ChicKami as soon as I can finish Francine. I got 5 balls of Rowan's Cotton Glace in Bud (Bud? Jokes. too. easy. Must. resist. temptation.) and one ball in white. I am hopeful that five balls will be enough -- I only grabbed the white ball because there were only 5 balls of the green, and I'd rather have the tank be a solid color.

Tomorrow, I'll be spending the day at a friend's house to wait for the installation of their cable and the delivery of some furniture. This means that there is no painting, furniture building, or decorating that I can do -- it's several hours of uninterrupted knitting time, and I'm helping out a friend to boot. That, my friends, is what I call pure, guiltless bliss.
