because i was in showers of flowers today with my gift certificate looking at yarns with which to start my angelica. (woo!) i bought the pattern today. for those of you interested, i decided on lamb’s pride worsted which will be warmer and less drapey than the hipknits silk, making it more of a late fall/winter sweater.
i really liked the oregano because it was noxious – just how i like my green. but i could only see myself wearing it with brown tones, and i wanted something i could wear with browns and blacks and greys for work. because dagnabit, i WILL be working by next winter. the pistachio was lovely, but so demure. the loden leaf was okay, but sorta boring. so old sage it was.
in other news, i got my eyes examined and got 2 new pairs of glasses that i’ll get in a week or so. here’s one of the pairs (the conservative and professional. not to mention the first pair of wire rimmed glasses i’ve had since, oh, 1990?)
and now i have a riotous migraine so am going to not look at the computer or knit for a while.
