1900 yards equals 1.0795455 miles according to my trusty widget.
Last night at the wine bar (shouldn’t knit nights be always be held in wine bars?) as Cathy fondled my yarn for the Moroccan Days Arabian Nights Shawl she asked, “Have you ever balled this much yarn before?” Then in response to my horror stricken silence added, “It could take you a while.”
Bead shopping yesterday with Hillarey was a bust. Nothing in the exact size and not enough beads in any single color. This morning I ordered beads from Foxden, in both a topaz and an olive 8/0. Once they arrive I’ll decide which color to use. Choosing the color from an online source is a bit scary but the prices are very reasonable – especially for 5000 beads.
This week I’ll knit the swatches and finish up Chris’s socks while I wait for the beads to arrive.
