There's nothing worse when he happens to be the boy you like and he's wearing nifty skates with shiny yellow wheels and looping around you right before Couple's Skate and you're certain he's going to ask you to join him when the time comes.
There's nothing worse when he goes and gets an ice cream one-half second before Couple's Skate is announced and hangs with his friends, instead. And when you settle for a skate with a lesser-flame, he sends you a wink from across the rink, a wink that unsettles your soul.
Well this is my completed Green Gable. I love, love, love it. I surprised myself with the Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece. Even though the way the skein is wound sort of irritated me, the yarn itself is surprisingly resilient and the color is nice. The fit of the top is great and the only change I made--which was a minor one--was to add about an inch in length. I noticed, when I was steaming the living heck out of it with my steamer thing--that it grew a little bit more, so who knows how much was added between my fiddling and the steaming.
Thanks for all the comments about my Flash Your Stash photo. Although it was my idea, HWWV did it all. He even arranged the yarn, lugged a huge ladder up and down the stairs, and managed not to unravel anything or step on the Koigu or mush the Lorna's too much.
HWWV, he's such a pro, he didn't even drool.
