1) frog and reknit the XS size of honeycomb
2) go on a mission to find some sort of other complementary yarn for the neck and armbands
3) frog and reknit into a mini clapotis
your opinions greatly appreciated.
in the meantime, i distracted myself with a v-day gift from mr b:
yummy alpaca! i am in love with this yarn - misti alpaca chunky in colorway "monet melange". i know that it appears beige there but - here's a closer look:
can you see the gorgeous shiny strands of red, blue, and yellow twisted with the beige? when they overlap, they give off the impression of purple, green, and orange in the mix. so soft. so gorgeous.
and destined for colorado. a good friend requested a pair of bella's mittens, and i wanted to try a substitute yarn. they're blocking now (mmm, the smell of wet alpaca and soak wool wash throughout the house) and looking good, albeit fuzzier than the originals. i expect the cables won't 'pop' as much as they do with the cascade 109, but they'll sure be softer!
the sun's starting to set so it's time to keep warm and snuggle with the bunnies.
p.s. - the headaches have finally subsided for the most part. we'll see how work goes tomorrow.
