When I got to the join row on the 4-S vest, I realized I'd lost a shell somewhere. Phooey! So - I used the frogging opportunity to change yarns:
The is some Pakucho Cotton I received all the way from Down Under and the darling Nat. :) I've been waiting to find the right pattern and this is definitely it! I have 10 skeins, however, unlike the 8 skeins I have of the Garnstudio's "Paris" that I received from the lovely Silja. Soooo...I'm thinking from the green I'll make Galena:
and then go back and make the 4-S vest from the Paris with black accents at the sleeves and around the neckline & hem. With black buttons to boot:
The black (I'm thinking CE's new "Charcoal") would tone down the bright pink and the edging would give it a Chanel feel. :)
Decisions, decision, eh? I'm thrilled to be crocheting from stash too. :) The only thing I need to buy is one skein of Charcoal CE and I'll have two FO's.
Well....I do need to buy about 11 skeins of Caron's Simply Soft "Shadows" to make this:
But honestly, who but me is keeping track, right? ::wink::
My FIL's sale is going very well. We'll actually clear a few thousand from the deal AND have the house cleared out too. :) We're listing it for sale with the estate agent for 4% commission. If she does well, we might list our old house with her too.
In the meantime, this week we're having a big dumpster delivered to our old house for the yard clean-up & trash haul-away. At least things are still moving forward!
I've been reading a great book in my spare time that I'll be reviewing this week. Um - those of a religious bent won't like it so plan on skipping at least one of my posts soon. ::wink:: However, the 4 atheists who read my blog best stay tuned! LOL
Hope everyone's having a great weekend. :) I'm perky 'cause I've actually gotten some sleep. Yay!
