On a much more positive note...
I am in love with this latest finished knit.
Ene's Scarf from Scarf Style
Apx 1.5 hanks of Malabrigo Sock in Alcaucil on size 6 needles.
(Alcaucil is Spanish for artichoke btw, and it does have a greenish tint in certain lighting.)
I loved every single minute of knitting this shawl.
Here's my best dealing-with-a-teenage-photographer expression.
After the photo shoot, I proceeded to wear it the rest of the day... with my Levi's and Old Navy long-sleeved t-shirt. It feels wonderful... soft, squishy, and stretchy.
Perfection! (But making note to schedule appt. for haircut.)
