So I had to work (I’m a lifeguard/swim instructor) from 11 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. today, and that kind of sucks. But the day had a fantastic endcap: My last class of the night was cancelled due to thunderstorms and also lack of participants AND when I got home from work, on my bed, I found a package. I proceeded to squeal in excitement and tear it open:

My Knit Picks Options! And pretty fast shipping–I ordered them late Thursday night so they got the order Friday morning. Go Knit Picks! Anyway, I immediately put together the 24″ US 7/4.5mm needle because it’s the size I’m using for a string bag, and I was previously using a Susan Bates needle, and the cable is constantly all twisty. But look:

Not twisty at all! Eeeeee! I’m so excited about these needles. In my last Knit Picks order, I ordered US 6 and 7 16″ fixed and I haven’t gotten a chance to knit with them yet. : ( But I have PLANS. For HATS. And it’s going to be awesome.

Oh, and as for actual knitting progress:

Started a washcloth because I need one. And because this one is cool. And because this yarn is awesome (Lily Sugar and Cream in Playtime which should really be called Sunset). More deets later when it’s done (probably tomorrow if I can get all this swap done in time).
