Random Shots, Random Thoughts
| I finished my Clapotis this weekend; I ended up having a significant amount of yarn left over, despite having weighed the increase section; I would the equivalent amount of yarn into the centre of the second skein (marked it with some wast yarn), and had planned to keep going on the straight section until I hit the marker. However, after doing about 14 or 15 repeats of the straight section, I was starting to get antsy to finish, so I just started on the decreases. It's more scarf width than shawl width, because I did one less set of increases/decreases. In retropspect, if I had done the required number of increases, it would work better as a shawl, but I'm pretty certain it would be too short to use as a scarf.|
We have done more window shopping than actual purchasing things shopping - this was the first time I saw Crocs boots - are they available in N. America? I personally am a Crocs hater - I have large feet, and the last thing I want is shoes that make them look significantly larger. I have a pair of Doc Martens clogs that I got years ago on ebay the I can wear if I am suddenly overcome by a desire to wear clogs. I have seem skimmer/mary jane styled crocs out there which are nice and streamlines, but my concern is that my feet would sweat horribly if encased all day in plastic.
The Gambler loves to go look at castles - it's almost beyond my comprehension that people actually lived in these places, and used the artifacts inside.
