Yarny Goodness

Good Morning! Yes, it's fairly early here. I'm enjoying my oatmeal and apricot juice for breakfast while I ponder the day at work.

Earlier this week I decided to join my first WestKnits KAL. I KNOW!!! Exciting isn't it. So I purchased my pattern on Ravelry, joined the WestKnits Fan Group, and ordered my yarns. As you can see, my beautiful choices to the right. I knew i wanted the Malabrigo and I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Velvet Grapes Colorway, So I selected Damask a lust pink to coordinate with the Velvet Grapes, and Tortuga. Unfortunately, Jimmy Beans Wool was out of the Tortuga (and let me just add, they have FABULOUS customer service) and the rep who called me suggested the Madelinetosh Prairie in the Tern Colorway. Ok, it's a great mix! The texture is a little different, but not enough to really effect the outcome. Now I'm stuck. Yes....Stuck. Originally I was thinking the velvet grapes would be my anchor color, but now I'm leaning toward the Tern. I'm in a quandry at this point as I'm really undecided. So I'm going to continue to pet my yarn, Plurk with the Knitting BFF's and see what materializes. I also purchased size 4 addi lace turbo needles. [Squeeeeee]

Currently on the needles is the Falling Knots Wrap. I'm almost 1/2 way through the 6th repeat. And OH NO, I dropped a stitch. Now I have to figure out what to do....I don't think I can just pick up the dropped stitch, I may have to tink back. I think it's about 4 or 5 rows down [EEEERRRRRR]. So I may have to put it down, until I decide what to do....I still have my Fluke Socks on the needles and the FLS. I don't know about that FLS. In March I was gung ho, and now.....[fizzle] no love for it at all. Not much going on in the way of cross stitch either. So we'll wait and see for next week. Stay tuned, Same Bat-time, Same Bat-Channel.....
