I can't believe I forgot to post about this, but contest winner Kris has a draw of her own going on right now. Check it out. Tell her you came from HSBoots.
Remember when I said yesterday that I have already spent the $100 G00gle is going to pay me at the end of February?
Did you wonder what I spent it on?
1-I've been wanting it for over a year.
2-It will be my meisterwerk.
3-It is coming from here.
Oh yes, oh yes. I finally bought it.
I must say: lace is WAAAAY cheaper to knit than Fair Isle. This sucker is going to be about $240 by the time I have paid for the extra yarn (it needs to be a bit longer to be useable) and the exchange from pounds sterling. Hopefully Postes Canada Post doesn't sock me for duty - sometimes they are merciful (and sometimes they're not).
But money isn't everything, and this will be a really beautiful piece. What better way to spend some settlement money?
