Yes, the number crunching madness went well, and I am now the proud owner of a loan tied to a 2007 Jeep Compass Sport 4×4. Yay! No more smooshed up little 2 year old legs in the back seat! We finalized the deal at 8:45pm last night. I suppose there could be pictures. Maybe.
Happy happy joy joy! I actually did get to knit a couple of rows on my Jaywalkers yesterday while waiting for everything to happen. Of course, I made a mistake, had to tink back about 7 stitches, and then promptly dropped a stitch. So Yay! for crochet hooks!
So the only downer is that I’m going to really have to watch my purchases for a while. I’ve got enough sock yarn to last me for 6 months if all I ever knit was socks, and I’ve got the yarn I need to finish up Reid (which is what I’m going to work on next. No promises on finishing it next, though.) The blanket for my future-someday-sister’s-child will wait until there’s actually something on the horizon.
And Oh! I was listening to a bit of the newest Lime N Violet podcast yesterday, and Violet mentioned her Yarn Pirate Dogwood Merino/Tencel blend that she bought recently. She knit hers up into Jaywalkers, and when she washed them in Eucalan, the colors changed dramatically. (Reference here.) I bought mine at the same time from the same vendor. Should I worry about my skein having the same problems? It’s probably my favorite skein of the whole stash!
