At last, my slubby purple mist wool on order has arrived. I went up to Guyra after school today to collect it. The pattern calls for a long tail cast on, which I’ve not tried before. Time to increase my repertoire of cast-on methods! The first step will be to wind the skeins into balls. Hopefully I’ll get the cast on and a few foundation rows done tonight.
Today has been overcast all day, with only a few spits of rain. The cloud rolled in overnight, keeping the temperature from dropping much. I would like it to rain – I’m having to water the plants daily. This afternoon’s forecast thunderstorm appears to now be expected in the morning. So here comes another warm night *sigh*.
