>> learned that dragons are cats and tyrants are fire nation after watching how to train your dragon and how to train your dragon 2. this franchise has been on my radar since seeing the visually stunning trailer for 2 ages back (you know the one: ocean, wing-suit, amazing aerial choreography), and finally seeing them was a lot of fun. well, except for the shit-got-real sequence towards the end of 2, but whatever. also, i'm calling it now, 3 is going to be a search for toothless's mate.
>> decided that i need interweave knits spring 2015 in my life, because there are at least four sweaters i would totally love to wear in it: honey pullover, one way tee, rheya cardigan, and second story tee. it hits stands in just a few weeks, and i intend to have a serious look-through for potential queuing/yarn ordering. it's time i set some goals beyond "finish stuff in '15."
>> discovered that blogger and all-around cool person alexandra of wool & cotton just opened her very own yarn store in greece called plectorium! a-friggen-mazing! her sense for bright colors is reflected in her stock and samples and will should make for a fun and cheery store atmosphere. there's not much yet to the site, but i'm sure there will be in weeks to come (store pics, plz!). wishing you great success, alexandra!
this has been one of those lather-rinse-repeat weeks in which every day is exactly the same and time flows like a viscous loop. is it thursday? or have we moved back to monday? or has wednesday not yet arrived? i can no longer tell.
what i do know is that every day i came home and worked on the sweater, felt the night roll in, watched a movie with a sick bf, then fell asleep early. so while there have been no adventures, surprises, or variation this monday through friday, i am that much closer to finishing my biggest wip since the blanket. after that, it will be a parade of smaller projects and spontaneous cast ons, because this blog has been boring (read focused) for too long!
