Disappointment #1 of 2009

Both. Yarn Shops. Closed. Sundays.

Now I'll have to wait until Thursday, my next day off. I really want to get Madman's slippers finished, so they don't end up taking a year and a half to finish. (Not that I'm pointing fingers at myself. But. Yeah.)

In the meantime, I'm still knitting Annemor 10.

These are meant for my youngest daughter - I knew she'd go for the bright green!
It occurred to me that I would be much happier if I caught the second one up to the first before I got too far ahead. I'd had to fiddle with the fingers, and it was best to continue the fiddling while it was still (fairly) fresh in my mind. While I'm perfectly capable of reverse engineering, life is so much easier if I don't put myself into that position...

And here's some of the knitterly loot I got for Xmas:

Anyone want a better look at that yarn? Yeah, me too.

It's Cherry Tree Hill, and the colors (named "Earth") are even better in person than they are in the pic. I've got 2 skeins of 284 yards each, worsted weight. Now begins the big dither about what to make out of it. Ideas, anyone? Maybe that Moebius Cowl or Shawl that I've been wanting to experiment with? Or a vest? Or a hooded scarf?

Is it possible to get a PhD in dithering?

My vote is a shawl. They are what I love to knit and I wear mine alot.

Knitters have a PhD in dithering: Pretty happy Dithering. I vote shawl or vest. Use it all!
