what's been happening?
Both DH and I are in withdrawal. We both have been asking each other, where were we a week ago? Two weeks ago? Tonight he said he wished we were leaving for camp tomorrow. Now, that's a supportive DH!
My knitting has been on Sock #2 of the STR Firebird socks. I'd finished #1 at 2.75 and started #2 on the way home.
Yesterday during a thunderstorm I ...get this... swatched for my Round-the-Bend jacket. Below is the first part of the swatch on #6 circs. Nope. Continued swatch on #7 and that's the one on which I get gauge. How do I know? Not just my trusty ruler, but this Gauge-o-meter Cathy gifted me with at 2.75! Thank you, Cathy...it works like a charm!
Heck, if I would have started out with a 7, like Meg used, it would have been good to go from the start! However, Meg used a wool that is now unavailable and I'm using Berocco Ultra Alpaca, so just to be safe, I guess I should swatch anyway. Gee, don't know why, that's a dirty 6 letter word around here.
Oh, and at the end of camp I was fairly proud of myself that I hadn't left the room at the end in tears. That ended soon enough hugging Linda good-bye at the checkout desk.
