i'm really excited! y? cuz i made staceyjoy's marsan watchcap and it came out perfectly! woohoo! i'm going to give it to my daddy. i've never made him anything b4. while spending 6 hrs @ the yarn store yesterday, i got help w/ the parallelo sweater so i'm now back on track w/ that. i also picked up the rambling rows afghan pattern. i've been wanting to make one ever since i saw shobhana's. i'm currently deciding on colors cuz this gem will b for my new baby. thinkin 'bout making myself a few pairs of socks for my hospital stay (gotta use up my stash of sock yarn) and making him a hat to go home in. i'm going to have a lot of fun over the next several months. i will post pics of the hat as soon as it dries.
