I went to the LYS on my lunch break today. I got two skeins of Lamb's Pride Worsted (which I've never used before!) in dark charcoal, two skeins of Noro Cash Iroha in a light beige, and a skein of Plymouth Galway. I also got some for-now-nameless yarn in my SP8 spoilee's favorite color. I will probably end up making her a hat - she lives in my climate, so I know she'll get some use out of it. I was originally thinking of a scarf, but the SP exchange has a $60 limit and I don't want to spend it all on yarn.
I have made no progress at all on the Noro shrug. I'm wavering on whether or not to rip out the edging I've done, and I can't go any further until I decide. I am almost finished with the knitting part of the Koigu capelet. I'll have to save the finishing for this weekend, when The Wibbles will most likely spend one night over at his grandparents' house. Knitwise, having a kid is worse than having a cat.
I also finished the hat I started last week. I love the pattern, but unfortunately I don't love the actual hat. I used doubled Koigu, and somehow it just doesn't feel right when it's on - it's too floppy, or something. I probably should have used a size 8 needle instead of a 9. I'm trying again with the Lamb's pride and size 8's. If I still don't like it, I'll try Karabella Margrite Bulky and size 10's. I want to get it perfect, because I'm thinking of submitting it for publication. And since it's a very '20's, flapper-style cloche, I'll be naming it after the Glaistig. If that's OK with her.
