But let's start with the winning.
#1: School is over and done with. Yay!
#2: The yarn I dyed with the Easter egg dyes finally spoke to me (after I'd wound it into a ball and swatched), so it is well on its way.
Right now it looks like this:
I'm knitting them both toe-up, from either end of the ball, because I didn't have much of a good idea how much yarn there was, or how much these little socks would take. I'm using Wendy's Generic Toe-Up Sock Pattern, modified for 36 stitches around. Let's just say they're going quickly!
I'm having trouble getting the colors to photograph correctly, but I'll give it a better try when the slippers are actually done.
... and now it's on to the losing.
#1: Witness my shower.
See all those parts laying around, that are supposed to be attached to the shower? Yeah. Yeah. They were supposed to have fixed it today, but I doubt they're coming now. Thankfully I can take a shower elsewhere, but this is kind of a pain in the ass in the meantime.
#2: Remember that Gossamer Ruffle Shawl? Well, at about 500 stitches into the last increase row to make it 1760... I ran out of yarn. I have to knit over 1000 more stitches, and bind everything off. And I don't have any more yarn. I hate you, Karabella shawl pattern.
