Not much new

Still getting used to my camera (which, BTW, is a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W330).  There is not much knitting to photograph, anyway.  I have been so busy at work that my lunchtime knitting has fallen by the wayside, and at home, the yard and garden call to me relentlessly.  I am still plugging away, but much more slowly.

Anyway, I had a new Ravelry experience recently:  someone asked to purchase some of my yarn.  I had a half-dozen skeins of Classic Elite Four Seasons (now discontinued) left over from Sitcom Chic, with no prospects for it in sight.  (Besides, one fuschia garment per wardrobe is plenty.)  The purchaser had some of her own Four Seasons, but not enough for her planned project.  Incredibly, mine matched her dye lot.  She offered a fair price, so now I have a few more bucks in my PayPal account and she has the yarn.  Win-win!

I forget where I read about brioche knitting, but I checked Knitting Brioche out of the local library.  It looks like fun, but it also looks challenging and I am not quite up for a new challenge right now.  In fact, I have a lot of challenges, like spinning and dyeing, to name two, that I am not facing.  There are simply not enough hours in the day.

I recently had the same Ravelry experience! Unfortunately, by the time I actually saw the message she had decided on a different yarn for her project. But hope springs eternal for another sale opportunity!
