I plan to knit in public tomorrow at the LYS, and hope you are celebrating Knit in Public Day somehow, somewhere. I'll probably be toting one of my new sock yarns around with me (yeah, I broke down and ordered some stuff from the Loopy Ewe, cause, well, I did have that $25 credit sitting there waiting for me to use it. I wanted something dark red to use with the second bunch of beads I bought, so I got a Dream in Color Smooshy in Gothic Rose that will make either a lovely scarf or some very snazzy socks. But, my favorite purchase is this Tempted Glam Grrl yarn in a color called Moonlight. It's that stuff with genuine silver in it. Not fake shiny stuff, but real silver! And it looks spectacular with the hand-dyed pale gray yarn. My blogging friend who also got some Glam Grrl said to open it in the sunlight, which of course I couldn't do because I got to the mailbox after dark, but I took it outside this morning. WHOA! That is some effect! I'm glad my picture shows a bit of sparkle, anyway, because sometimes it doesn't show up in photos.
Off to another job interview and some relaxing knitting. I'll try to stay out of the heat. I know the floods across the Midwest of the US are worse, but our very early 100-degree days are pretty icky.
