Hey, look what came in the mail today!
It's some diVe cotton I snagged off a destasher over on the KR Forums. It's DK weight, a pale, ice blue. I have ten skeins of it - 109 yds/50g skein. No idea what I'm going to do with it yet, but it's pretty! Maybe one of those summer tops I saw...
After, of course, I finish this:
Which is coming along quite nicely and is at the perfect mindless knitting point. Miles and miles of worsted weight stockinette in the round! Yes! It's lovely for movie marathons or listening to the audio books. I'm actually quite pleased with the colors. One of my friends begged me not to go Gryffindor or Slytherin, and wanted me to make a Ravenclaw sweater. I would actually have preferred that myself, not wanting to be a "typical" person, but couldn't find the right colors in the yarn. My high school was maroon and gold, so I guess this is okay. I'm obviously not opposed to gold and black, my beloved Purdue colors, either, but I can't really see myself ever being put in Hufflepuff for any reason. Nothing against Hufflepuff, of course. (Not that I'd ever be put in Gryffindor, either, I'd almost certainly be put in Ravenclaw, personally.) But anyway, it's my vest, and I like it so far. I'm also doing it in the round, as opposed to pieced, specifically so it would remain mindless.
But, I do need an opinion on something (if you can actually see it well enough to form an opinion.
It's my swatch for the MS3. The bottom part is just three repeats to check needle size. The top two repeats are beaded. The lower repeat has smaller (8/0), multicolored metallic green/purple beads that I really like, but may be too dark. The top repeat has larger beads (6/0), in translucent shades of light blue. I can't decide which, if either, I like. Any opinions?
