I got the Marrakesh in the mail, and got all excited and went to Knitch and bought some more size zero needles, and got out my pattern, and then realized that the hank has not yet been wound into a ball and so therefore I should not start knitting on my Rivendell socks yet. So I transfered the lace project from my KnitPicks circulars to a lovely new set of Addi Turbo Lace circulars (TURBO!!!), and then knit on another unfinished sock, and lamented my lack of a working camera battery (and battery charger).
However, during my trip to Knitch, I got to see the lovely Marisa, whom I have not seen since she left for France with her husband, and I’m glad she has not left Knitch or decided to stay in France forever (though I’d understand if that was the case; I have often contemplated doing that myself).
Tonight, I hope to wind up the Marrakesh and start the Rivendell socks, since I’ve been waiting mostly patiently and I have everything I need except for the winding bit. I’m just not good at waiting.
