I thought, as it was quickly starting to seem that I don't complete anything, I jut gripe about it, I'd show a picture of my lovely WIP Tubey. I don't know how anyone who's waist is bigger than an 8 would try it on whilst in progress, though.
I'm very happy with the colours. How they'll look on me, I don't know. I don't actually care. I like them too much to be cranky with them, even if they make me look like a hippo. I used the closest substitutes that Patons had in Jet, so my eggplant is pretty pink, and they don't make a black (how WEIRD is that?) but the grey gives it a nice soft look. My only gripe with the Jet is that they're really short balls - I had to buy another one of the brown, and I'm hoping that the distance of the brown stripe from the one on the sleeve (I'm still to do the brown stripe, don't adjust your monitor!) will make up for them being in different dye lots.
I want to finish it NOW! But the circular needles are ticking me off. I know that makes me super-uncool. But they do.
Been catching up on the copyright issues that have been happening between some brilliant designers and a moron on ebay. I'm really glad that the knitting community has someone like the Girl From Auntie, who is articulate and intelligent, and is dealing with it in a more productive way than most could ever hope for. I still want to make Rogue, too. No, no, bad Aurora, finish what you've got in the "I want..." pile....
