Things are moving in stits and farts around here. The Silk Garden Lara predictably ran out of yarn just as I approached the ribbing on the last cuff. It's quite long ribbing, about 4 inches. I wasn't quite as exasperated as I might have been because it gives me the chance the arrange the colours, rather than settling for what might just happen to happen. The necessary wool is on its way in the post.
I returned to the off-blog lace and completed the third chart, up to row 125. This means about 544 stitches. The printer fixed the metaphysical problem it was having in my previous post, but has now run out of ink, so I can't print the next chart. The necessary cartridge is on its way in the post.
I was going to get back to Chrissy next but I was diverted by ambermoggie's Jet jacket. I decided I have enough bluey green cardis for the moment and after a lot of peering at Ravelry got the corally colour, which is called Lolly Orange for some reason. I don't know they called it that, because it's not at all bright and not very very orange; it's a soft brownish pink, the colours of weatherworn red sandstone walls.
Kemp's are selling it at an unfeasible price and I'm very tempted to get some more for a black winter jacket - oops, dithered too long, maybe I'll do it in navy.
There's another nice cardi in the Jet book, but I'm not sure if I have the strength of character to do an entire jacket in basket stitch. The word basket-case seems uncannily close.
After I finished the first ball, I told myself very sternly to get back to Chrissy and I started looking for the WIP. I found the body,
but I can't find the part-done sleeve, which is in a bag with the remaining yarn. Ahem. Do you have any ideas?
ADDED LATER: Found it. I looked in all the places I might have put it, twice, and then I started to look in the places I wouldn't have put it - found it quite soon. Phew.
