I Feel Better Now

I got home from a bad overnight shift at my second job and was lamenting to myself...I am at the point I am too tired to take on issues from per diem job, and I sat myself down and thought I should be happier, waht would make me happier, DH not home from work yet, younger DS already gone to school, older DS sleeping as he has full day finishing thesis....hmmmm....no I shouldn't start the gloves til I finish 2 WIPs...hmmmm I did finish a PAIR of socks...so I cast on. I have never knit with Koigu before though I did receive some from a Pal...it is a glorious yarn and I am going to have to find a LYS that carries it so I can see all the combos. I have been knitting forever and even just this little bit is the most beautiful thing I have done in a while....the instructions for the lovely braided cuff are so well explained, it had been some time since I did one. Thanks so much

Oh yes - few things can perk up a person like a new project, with gorgeous yarn. Your colors are wonderful. I have never knit with Koigu, so I will be anxious to hear your thoughts. It is lovely!

And - pictures! we want pictures! lots of them...... (please)
