So, Dean spontaneously bought two swifts last week: one for me, and one for Squarah's birthday, which isn't until July. I couldn't wait to start using mine; it makes winding yarn so much easier, and fun! I had to call Sarah to let her know, so she wouldn't impulsively buy one before her birthday.
I wound up my Araucania Nature Wool this morning, all four hanks.
Yesterday, before the wedding, I cast on for a My So Called Scarf, in my Queensland Collection Rustic Wool.
I've been wanting to use the yarn, since it was one of my first LYS purchases, and I'm really enjoying the project. It will be my portable project to take back and forth to work, and I'll probably give it a Christmas gift (since scarves aren't practical here for 11 months out of the year. Ah, Houston.
So, the wedding last night was really fun, and probably the best one I've ever attended. It was extravagant, but not in a disgusting way. The food was delicious, the weather was perfect and the bride was gorgeous.
Something looks off with my eyes, but as you can see, the bright dresses are actually quite flattering.
My hair looked totally rockin. It's still sort of curly today, and I'm loving it.
