It's Damson, from the amazing Ysolda whose designs I seem to knit quite often. (this is the 7th Ysolda project I've knit in the last year... granted I did knit 2 liesls, and 2 ripleys, but still!)
The yarn is Malabrigo sock, and it used just under a ball. I was concerned I was going to run out, but in the end I was fine.
I'm just not sure if I like it on me. I might end up gifting it to my sister for her birthday.
Speaking of my sister, she want's me to KNIT 2 small curtains for her new apartment. I'm thinking of using 5mm-ish needles, the new Noro laceweight from the sheep, and just doing them in stockinette. What do you wise knitters think?
School is kicking my ass this week. I just had to submit a thesis outline, and I STILL don't have a solid research question. Part of the reason is that I didn't get to look at my primary research materials (Kodak ads from the early 20th century) 'till this week, but I'm feeling lost. I know I want to work with the ads, and I kind of know what I want to say, but I just can't get the research, my thoughts, and the material to all make sense together. It's very frustrating.
Reading week is less than two weeks away. I will be home for a week and a half- it'll be wonderful! I miss my sister, and my boyfriend, and my kitties, and my knit night ladies. It'll be NICE to get back to Toronto.
