Texture Time

Beth loves knitting hats and wanted to try out Dream State. After looking on Ravelry she chose the Basic Norwegian Star Hat (pattern free on Ravelry). The hat took one skein of Woolstok and about 1/2 skein of Dream State. She was upset because she didn't get through enough of the colours in the Dream State. There will be another hat cast on tonight and this time she is going to flip the yarns. Dream State will be the base and Woolstok will be the contrast. She sent a text to make sure that I bring yarn home for her.

It was time to start playing with colours for Stephen West's next MKAL.

I've gone down the rabbit hole. Now I've started and I can't stop.

The store is mostly back in order. Finally. We are packed for Camp. The only thing left to do is put my fashion show in order and have class notes printed.

My Espe is almost finished. Six rows to go. And it was my lucky day. I think I might run out of yarn and there was a skein in my lot on the shelf. Now a few more rows before bed.
