an excuse to post

actually, this is not the excuse, lol, that comes later. this is a hand rolled center pull ball of brown sheep burly spun. the label says size 13 needles. i have learned long ago, to swatch, and pick my own, i'm always going down in needle size. i think it's got something to do with the size of my hands. we were discussing this in AC4C and discoverd that those with small hands always go down, and larger hands go up. regular/medium usually can get guage with the needles suggested. well, i had to go down to a size 10! wow. and yes, this color is actually pretty accurate. the muslims think green is a holy color, and since i was tired of the "mud" colors i'd bought earlier, i bought this. it's bright, which is acceptable.

speaking of bright, thanks, erin, for your comment on the vest. i will bring it, but according to the ladies on AC4C, it's acceptable. woohoo! no dyeing that! now i gotta dye liam's cheesecloth for his costume, sigh. halloween is coming faster than you think!

That is a positively fantastic shade of green...

And the thought of the needles compared to hand size is neat, too... except that I don't think my hands are particularly small, my ring sizes are on the largeish size (7 or 8, so maybe medium) and I always go down two or three needle sizes...

Have you tried jewelweed for your poison something? In less than 24 hours most of my gross blisters were dried up and grossly on their way to healing... grossly. But still, a marked improvement.
