The Hourglass sweater is coming along fine, and I've finished the body now and can start with the sleeves. In fact, I tried to cast on for them last night, but realised that I didn't have the right needle size. Drat! Also, the pattern requirements say 30cm circular needle. 30cm?! Do they even exist? I've certainly never come across them before. I've ordered some 40cm and some DPNs from Get Knitted, just to be on the safe side.
So now I wait.
And work on my thesis.
And browse KnitPicks just to tortue myself a bit. I do this sometimes. All the pretty pretty yarns. And so cheap!
It's not fair.
Which makes me wonder. How about a yarn-swap? UK yarns against US yarns? Rowan, Colinette, Fiberspates against Knitpicks, Cascade, Manos del Uruguay? There must be even more pretty yarns on either side of the atlantic that are either way too expensive or difficult to get hold of at all. Would anyone be up for that? What do you think?
