These are cellphone pics, and hey it was already getting dim outside-- but the color is actually pretty close! I really liked this tweedy stuff in the store. However, now the tweed nepps look like dryer lint to me. I will persevere, and hope I like it better as fabric than as string. Oh and looky at my trusty old Bates interchangeables -- on their new Chaio Goo flexible cords! How cool is that? I love the needles, hated the cords that came with the set, but now all is well.
I have been getting much kindness over on Ravelry due to Hinky's passing, and I just want to say thank you again. I'm sure she's in a better place, with lots of good friends to play with until I come to collect her.
