Good things kept happening yesterday evening…
First, I was thinking about my next selfish knit and was trying to decide between Patti and the Gathered Pullover from Interweave Winter 2007. The descision was made for me when I accidentally found Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool on closeout at Webs for $3.49 a ball, which, let’s face it, is practically free. That’s what I figured I’d use for Patti anyway, so I bought 9 balls of dark brown and ordered the pattern and I am telling myself (sternly) that I will NOT be casting on until the Christmas gifts are finished!
Then I checked on my Etsy shop and saw that a whole slew of people had added me to their favorites and I thought: hmm…that’s curious. And lo and behold one of my necklaces was in someone’s Treasury on the Etsy home page! And then the necklace sold about 8 minutes later. That was a whirlwind of excitement (for me). 🙂
And then I headed off to knitting club. Just when I thought knitting club might be fizzling…some of my favorite knitters and a couple new knitters showed up at the bar and it was very, very fun and restored my faith in knitting club. While at knitting club, I worked on a Swatch Bangle. I need to add to my Christmas queue like I need a hole in the head, but I couldn’t resist trying these! I bought some ugly bangle bracelets on eBay and I’m in the process of covering them with cabley goodness for my loved ones…whether they like it or not.
I wish all Thursdays were this pleasant!
