Never Look Back

Two things made last night’s disappointment bearable. Continuing progress on Kepler, and the rain-dampened, but beautiful tickets that arrived in yesterday’s mail.

After knitting three of the four cable bands for Kepler on size 9 needles, I finally admitted that the gauge just wasn’t right, and started the fourth on size 8s. It’s looking much crisper. A big improvement. I’ll need to re-do the previous week and half worth of cabling, and the plain sleeves and body will knit up at a tighter gauge now, which means some adjustments (and the dreaded math), but I’m feeling confident.

And as for baseball…only a few weeks ’til Spring Training begins. I can almost feel the warm sun on my face and hear the first joyful notes of Sweet Caroline floating through the air. Ahhh… Posted by Picasa

A One Day Sale

On Monday, Filenes was having one of their infamous “One Day Sales”. These seem to occur at least once a week. Anyway, I picked up a great pair of brown tweed pants at the unbelievable bargain price of $14.99. But that means, I now need a top to wear with my new pants. Upon closer inspection I realized that the tiny cranberry flecks in the tweed fabric will match perfectly with the Cranberry Galway Highland Heather wool I purchased on Saturday. Now I just have to knit very fast and finish Kepler before spring arrives. Posted by Picasa
