A bit more Luna eye candy...
I learned one really important thing with this project - I need a bigger bed!!! I am now panicking trying to figure out where I'm going to block Evenstar when it's finished. I know it will take up the bed and over the sides...yikes...
Thank you for all your great comments on Luna Moth. I try to reply to all comments but am a bit confused as to how I reply to the ones that come as "noreply". If you comment and don't get a reply back from me, it's because it came through this way and I can't figure out how to reply (and am betting there isn't a way since it says "noreply"...doh...).
I really only sweated how much yarn I had left for a short while. This yarn is very unusual - four strands of cotton thread plied together, and the color changes take place by tying in increasing numbers of the new color. When I got to the violet shade, I counted how many rows I was able to knit with just one thread of violet, then did some quick calculations figuring there would be a pretty close amount with each addition of violet thread. As it turned out, I ended up with more yarn than I thought I would.
Yesterday, I worked on Evenstar quite a bit - got six or so rows done on Clue #5, so I'm happy. We went out to dinner with a good friend last night (Hi, Mark!). The highlight (or lowlight) of the evening was when Mark ordered an Anchor Steam beer and the (seriously distracted and spacey!) waitress brought him a pot of English Tea. Huh????
Today...off to Harmony Project rehearsal. I am seriously pumped!!! Another rehearsal tomorrow night, then the concerts on Wednesday and Thursday. I doubt I'll have much knitting or blogging time this week. But I'll be singing my heart out for several very good causes and loving every second of it.
Happy Sunday everyone, and I'll catch up as soon as I can!!
