I’m not (and never will be) a Republican, but this is great news for Maryland: former Lt. Governor Michael Steele was just named the first African-American head of the RNC. A good friend of mine worked with Lt. Gov. Steele while he was serving Maryland, so I have a good association with him, as well as being another “first” in American politics. Maybe we really have turned a corner.
While I was reading this news, I am on my first sleeve (almost done) of my Mr. Greenjeans. I don’t know how much Patons SWS I had to begin with, then I bought 3 skeins from someone on Ravelry. Then I thought I had almost run out and just bought 4 more skeins from someone on Ravelry (that hasn’t come yet), meanwhile the 1 1/2 skeins I have left might just be enough! So I’ll end up having 4 skeins of a yarn I wasn’t that excited about to begin with. I really like the yarn, it’s just not my colorway. In fact, I’m surprised I bought it and made a sweater with it, as I don’t know if I’ll wear it.
I’ve been following the pattern, but already I think the cable part is started too low in the actual sweater part, and I started the cable on the sleeve before it said to, and I think I’d rather have more cabling – like maybe a full sleeve of ribbing with cabling at the end. Maybe when I make my 2nd (yeah, right!)
