I thought I'd respond to some comments, because I've been meaning to and keep forgeting and then am too lazy to go back and do it.
Plus, I've hit that mid-afternoon slump at work, so yeah. Watch me goof off.
Ellie-- I understand that your post office knows who you are, but say there was a box that was addressed to an unknown person at your address and they new it wasn't the person next door to you. Would they automatically send it back? Or would they at least attempt to deliver it first?
Beth-- (do you blog Beth?) About making the gament the gauge swatch. I do do this with things that don't have to fit. But I had to do several swatches for the Chocolate Decadence sweater to see at what gauge I liked the fabric drape. So I could see how silk knits up (as I don't get the change to knit with a lot of 100% silk) but also, as this is my own design, I needed to get some semblence of how many stitches per inch I was getting so I even knew where to start with how many stitches to cast on. I'm also being overly anal with this sweater as the yarn was a very special yarn splurge, and this sweater WILL be perfect, in order to justify the yarn and the decay on my bank account.
And thanks to everyone on the job congratulations!
ALSO Knit In is tonight! At the Sweetwaters on the corner of Washington and Ashley. Lots of fun! (And I get to have a slumber part with Emily tonight. Very exciting)
