I had swatched away with #6 needles, and then #5 needles, and I thought I was happy with #6. I liked the drape.
Plus, I found this particular handspun to be a bit stretchy. Very nice to work with, but not as eager to hold its shape at such a loose gauge.
So I frogged the little bit I had knitted, and started again with #4 needles and my own simple (so far) design. I like it much better with the #4s, and have more ideas for jazzing up the pattern.
I also started the Trousseau again using a different yarn, fingering weight, perfect for that travel project I need.
Meanwhile, I have been busy attempting to design something for a crochet publication, with a deadline coming up in about a week. I've tried a dozen different ideas and hated the results of each one. Some things look better in my head than in the yarn.
I've shelved the project for today. I'm working on something I really like, but they want something for a spring issue, and this is more of a fall or winter thing. Pooh. I may submit it anyway, just for kicks.
In other news, I missed the beautiful Blood Moon the other night, but I did get to see an amazing sunset a couple of days prior. Better "live" than in a pic, but you get the drift.
