One step closer...

...to starting MS3. On Sunday when More Cows was visiting, we stopped by the LYS and she helped me pick out this lovely yarn:


Misti Alpaca in a gorgeous dark natural brown, and Addi Turbos for Lace.

At least now I can't use the "I don't have yarn for that project" excuse for not starting. Granted, I still don't have the beads, and I still haven't finished any of the other projects I have on the needles, despite my vow that I would at least have Samus ready for blocking before casting on anything else. Oh yes, and I have exactly three nanoseconds of free time each day, it seems.

This week, every night after I get home from Hindi class at 10, I will be packing dishes and books and anything else I can manage to cram into boxes before Friday, which is when the movers are coming (lucky for me, Taz will be supervising that). This time on Saturday, Taz and I will be waking up in our new place, which we are very very excited about. The actual moving, though? Not so much. We will survive this move, and we will be amazingly happy when it's done. Yes.

And in less than two weeks, I'll have my weekday evenings back. MS3, here I come!

Thanks for stopping by the blog! Yes, we had a nice time at Sangeeta's yarn swap -- she's a great hostess! Maybe you'll get to come next year and I'll meet you then! 'Til then, have fun knitting up MS#3!

Yay! MS3!!! I am sooo glad I was the one twisted your arm for joining this KAL :) Yes, I am evil ;) I thought about using Misti Alpaca but I just couldn't ignore the Skacel Merino Lace sitting on the shelf and buy more yarn... especially David and I are looking to buy a single family and flip it! Oh yes, more on that later...

Good luck with your move - I still have stuff in boxes, and I moved back in March!!!!!!

Congratulations with the yarn purchase and the move!!

What exactly is the difference between regular circular needles and circular needles "for lace"?
