Derecho in Progress
I am so in love with this project. The yarn, Berroco Comfort DK, is lovely to work with and the pattern is extremely well written which makes me one happy little knitter. And it's one of those patterns that's mindless enough to make for good knit night/tv watching/ podcast listening knitting but also has enough interest that I'm motivated to work on it.
In other knitting news, I bought myself a little something from Etsy as a celebration of a few scholarships I was awarded:
That's right, a Doctor Who inspired needle gauge, can it get any geekier? Well, I guess I could have taken the picture with a Rose Tyler action figure next to the gauge. Not that there's a Rose Tyler action figure in my apartment. Nope. And by nope, I mean yup. The gauge has inspired me (is it weird to be inspired by a knitting tool?) to go back and re-watch the series (from Eccleston on) on Netflix and that's been a lot of fun.
Purchased any cool new knitting/crafting tools or gadgets lately?
