Yes tonight will be a frogging kind of Friday night, and the main thing I must remember is to simply stop when I am not doing soul feeding knitting. There I was knitting with some wonderful "bokesburg" two play mohair, nylon, wool, lovely sheen, fab dye job, even if I do say so myself, should have knit up beautifully into a tulip sweater, but wasn't quite cutting it...thought, oh, I will just knit a little longer and it will be okay, oh, its just the light and night, I will see it in daylight, well, it was none of the above, it was definitely the gauge thing, and I should have realized that right away but I wanted to knit it....so I have learned a valuable lesson and in future, if my soul isn't singing , I will stop. Tonight I will begin again, reduce the needle size and see if I can get this to sing to me.

Silk and mohair boucle and beads, and I do like this combo...haven't taken any pics lately but I always have preferred blogs with photos so like to provide one when I write...
Have finished the dishcloths for Rabbitch, and now just have to bleedy mail them, such a procrastinator, but have everything ready to go. Have been finishing socks, and just bought some more sock wool, and silk and merino to dye so will have something to show shortly...also just purchased felted Stained Glass Fan bag, for eight dollars from Madelaine at Knitted Dream. I have been looking at this for awhile and wanted to try out my new pay pal, and voila, I am now the proud owner of the pattern...so that will be the next project I try. Off to knit socks as this was my long day at the library so have a short knitting night..
