exactly what i needed

DSC00716

last night i had a lovely meal and drinks with a friend downtown, which kicked off my weekend in just the right way. and then i come home to find 11 skeins of knit picks shine worsted? oh, bliss. i scored this stash on sale for $2 a skein and it is earmarked for ysolda's snow white. i am having a really, really difficult time not casting on.

but i'm trying to be a good girl. after the disaster of last week's andean silk armwarmers i decided i needed an easy project, and the marsan watchcap was definitely the right choice. it's perfect for the yarn and i was able to knit almost the entire thing while watching bread and tulips this afternoon (which, by the way, i highly recommend). after this i really need to get going on a secret holiday something, but i might just end up with two projects on the needles...

nap time!
