Gah, I hate when I run out of yarn before I run out of project. Alas, it happened, so the gift for Jen is on hold until I can afford to get more of it. Oh well.
So, what's a girl to do in the mean time? Cast on new projects, of course. I actually started two. One crochet (the lace shawl I was going to make with the yarn Amber got me). Unfortunately, I botched it up already and have to frog it. I'm not sure I have the stamina today to do that.
Which is why Jen helped me find a pattern for the Rosewood yarn I got as well. I'd tried the One Rose Handspun by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, but it was far too busy a yarn to fit the pattern. Jen found me this pattern, instead: The Corrugator.
