Thank god for long flights with nothing to do but nap, watch movies and knit.
The v-neck decreases are still not exactly how I'd like them, but they'll be FINE.
And this little bit of superwash merino love was waiting for me when I got home:
It's a little darker than I expected, but whatever, it's still gorgeous. I need some #7 dpns to cast on for the pinwheel baby blanket (tried half-heartedly last night with two circs and the outcome was wonky) so I can have a mindless knitting project ready to go at any time.
I also played a little hooky with my man yesterday afternoon and attempted to get some man aran yarn shopping done -- Na Craga here I come! We hit the Rug and Yarn Hut in Campbell -- a funny little shop needing some serious Feng Shui intervention ASAP -- which was having a 20% off sale on all Cascade yarns. I found the perfect colorway for the man aran (olive heather, #9448), but they only had nine skeins (I need 12 -- grrrrr!) in the same dye lot. Looks like I'll have to make a few calls around,...
CommunKNITy -- where Nathania is the manager -- had their grand opening yesterday, but unfortunately we couldn't make it over there. However, there's ANOTHER yarn store grand opening today in Los Gatos -- Yarndogs. I may go check it out, but given that my stash needs absolutely no enhancing whatsoever, maybe not. Oh, and a new LYS opened here in Santa Cruz as well -- The Swift Stitch -- it's on the West side off Mission St. in the same complex as Kelly's Bakery, and I still haven't checked that out either.

Happy weekend to everyone!
