There were parts of the experience that I certainly did not enjoy - sumpin' to do with 16 hours on my feet on Friday - and it was disappointing not to get to see much of the city (and find the yarn stores!), but I was pretty proud of the work I did. Some of my masterpieces looked sumpin' like this:
Thursday we had to do some food shopping at Whole Foods that resulted in a bill of $783.49. Saturday night we went downtown to the John Hancock Building post-work and had drinks in the cocktail lounge on the 96th floor. Those were the fun parts. Talking of bosses who drive me crazy, swollen feet from standing for so long, and hotel rooms with only fluorescent lights would sound like nothing but whinning.
Tonight was Wednesday and therefore SnB. Figured it was as good a time as any to address my feelings of knitting inadequacy and start Rogue.
The yarn I'm using is the real deal in that cable knit kinda way - cream coloured wool (1000g between the two balls you see here) that my dad picked up for me in Scotland last summer. I knit up a swatch and agonized with Laura and Joyce over whether to knit the small or medium size. I've tried on a small that was good but fitted. I decided to go for medium as I'll likely wanna wear sumpin' under it at times. Do you think I made the right choice?
