I can't believe it's been over 2 weeks since my last post. I'm slacking! At the end of July, I took a week off from work and Bill & I went to the beach with my parents. We stayed with my dad's friend in Rehoboth Beach, DE during the massive heat wave. We had a nice time despite the uncomfortable weather, and the best news is that I discovered a LYS in Rehoboth. It's called Knitty Gritty. We passed by one evening when they were closed, but I peered in the window and saw a TON of Cascade 220 yarn. I've been extremely undecided about what color Cascade to get for Forecast because the color of the yarn looks different on every website I visit. So, the last day at the beach, I stopped into Knitty Gritty after lunch and picked up some Cascade Tweed in a lovely deep purple. I was tempted to get the tweed in a bright bubble-gummy pink, but I will knit everything pink if I don't discipline myself. This is a color that I don't have any winter sweaters in, and it will look great with jeans or black/grey pants for work.
In other knitting news, Orangina is blocking right now and will have a finished post this week. I started the Prosperous Plum Tank over the weekend. I'm using some Rowan handknit DK in, what else, Sugar (pink) that I scored off of eBay. I can't think of a fruit that's pink colored, but since the color yarn I'm using is called Sugar, I'll call this my Prosperous Sugar-Plum Tank. I like it.
Lastly, Bill and his law partner were featured all over the local news last week for a popular case they are handling. Here's a link to the article that followed in the Baltimore Sun. He really enjoyed the few minutes of local fame!
