Yesterday I casted on for a pair of socks, 2x2 rib, in a cotton denim yarn: Marks & Kattens Indigo Jeansgarn, 100% Bomull (cotton). And I'm thinking that I should probably expect 5-10% shrinkage. With wear and washing, the yarn fades like a pair of worn blue jeans. It has a nice feel to it, is soft, and knits up nicely. I've had this yarn in my stash for quite a while, so it's time to put it to use.
Tomorrow I'm off work, and I plan on knitting the day away and, of course, casting on for another project or two!
On the homefront, Kristen (DD) is planning her "final exam survival trip" to Cancun.

Of course, I included a card with a fat check. Because you know how college kids are.... broke... sucking the
The tanning oil and moisturizer is Hempz. The moisturizer smells absolutely wonderful, and I was going to purchase one for myself but way too expensive for me. I'll have to ask Stoned Knitter if hemp really helps to achieve a dark tan.
So I'm off to the post office to mail Kristen her package.
Toodles.... Have a great day!
