I went to Susan's (Y2Knit) after work yesterday and bought some great yarn to make Variations on a Frill by Sivia Harding. I chose South West Trading Company's Bamboo in Drake. I hope it drapes and blocks ok. I started last night but had to rip a couple rows out this morning because when I put it down and picked it back up last night I inadvertantly turned it inside out on the circular. That's the first time I've ever done that and will be self conscious about it now I'm sure.I also picked up some yarn to make a coworker a pair of socks. It's Trekking XXL and I've used it before. He said it liked the color so I hope to get started soon. I like to have several projects going a once so I can match the project to my mood and/or location. Susan didn't have enough of the Meditation, lavender scented yarn to make the Oakely shawl so I will have to wait until she gets more in to start that project. I love the smell of lavender so much, it will be a joy to knit with that yarn. Speaking of scents, I need to reschedule our aromatherapy session with Karen at Omnessence. I really think there might be something to that. I told my husband and he was receptive to it. It's like I said, even if it doesn't offer any tangible results at least we'll smell good.
