Humor me. Probably only two people will be interested in this post...

Weather confuses the hell out of me.

Last week, the highs were constantly in the 50s.
Today, the high was in the mid 30s.
Tomorrow, the high is 39, but the low is only 36.
Freaking Wednesday, the high is 52.
And to make it more fun, there's a chance of ice (ew) tomorrow afternoon, leading into thunderstorms on Wednesday.

On the other hand, I ordered a whole lot of yarn online today. I got some nice wooly worstedy stuff in order to participate in an online knitalong. It's a gorgeous lace shawl...Collapse ) Can't wait for the yarn to come. I also got some laceweight yarn for another shawl... and some sock yarn, for (omg, shock) socks.

And besides, knitpicks.com is cheap. They get their yarn direct from the mills, so I paid $1.79 for a 100yd/50g ball of pure wool. Um... And there's free shipping for orders of $40 or more.
Oh, I almost forgot that I got yarn in order to make a purty fair isle vest, too. I'm going to be doing it in- surprise! the blue. I'm so booked for the next year. Not even counting all the yarn I already have in my stash. Two big rubbermaid buckets full. O_O

I'm almost finished with a bolero I've been working on- Knitty.com's Blackberry. I'll have pictures when I'm done. I have to do all the seaming... ugh... and then a ribbed border. That'll take a bit... O_O
