I forgot to post this yesterday, but last night Yannick helped me wind these two skeins of Woolly Bully by hand. Um, yeah. Two skeins. This is a case (Maaike) where a yarn purchase ISN’T a yarn purchase. I already HAD one skein, so I only bought a second one so I’d have enough to make something worthy of it. (I asked Yannick, he said it was ok). 🙂 These balls are huge! Each one is the size of a cabbage!
Here’s the latest on the Silk Rumple shawl. Again, everything from the orange pin (on the right) and up is the new stuff from today.
And finally, here’s tonight’s final view of the striped scarf. I’m at 118 stripes, but realized this am that it doesn’t really matter if I beat Maaike in the stripe count unless I beat her by a lot. I have only 41 sts per row, whereas she has 45. So for example, last night she’d knit 92 or so stripes and had finished the first 2 balls, but I’d knit 98 and needed another 10 or so stripes to finish them. I finally finished mine, though, and am about 10 stripes into the new balls. This officially makes me more than halfway through!

Couple of questions —
1: if Yannick bought me some Wooly Bully (which he did), do I get to go and buy some more to have a second ball? Just kidding, I’ll do with this one, and will probably make something for Erika.
2: no fair on the stripe count. I was up until 10 last night putting up insulation, and then was too pooped to knit. Are you secretly bribing your husband to give me tons of ‘home’work so I don’t have stripe time?

I saw those pics yesterday when I went to the game with Amy, she showed them to me. Very cute.
I agree with Maaike, Yannick should buy her some too to make it fair. LOL.

Loving the scarf, can’t wait to see it on you! Re kissing: Maxime just started doing the exact same thing! It’s pretty adorable (and, you know, a little slobbery).

Your projects are looking great! Do you have something in mind for the Woolly Bully? Something for Yannick? He did a great job picking colors!
