Today we had to go to Grafton so then after we went to the Grafton Yarn Store. I bought 2 skeins of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran in color #601 (light purple). It is soo soft! Then I needed needles so I bought some size 6 bamboo dpns. I paid for it all with my own money that I earned while babysitting a few weeks ago. I am making Fetching from knitty. It says to cast on 45 stitches but I made a swatch in the round with 40 stitches and it was practically falling off my wrist. Then I tried 30 but that was kind of tight. Finally I tried 35 and it was perfect. So then I cast on and started knitting it during a free outdoor band concert that my sister was in. Right now I'm doing the 5 rows of 4x1 ribbing.

I really like the yarn store we went to today. They had Noro Kureyon for making booga bags, and also they had lots of sock yarn but I didn't really look at that. I wish it was closer. It is about 40 minutes away from me.

I got really frustrated with the Mid-June KAL for the Monthly Dishcloths group on yahoo. I almost frogged it and gave up but I kept going. I got frustrated because it looked crappy but then I started to see the pattern more so I didn't frog it. I have 1-2 more pattern rows and then the border and then I'm done. I started it using what was left of a skein of Sugar and Cream yarn in Painted Jewels and ran out partway through so I started using my solid purple S&C yarn.
