Good News: I figured out my gauge for the Opal yarn. That would be 6 stitches per inch.
Bad News: One of my addi size #3 circs has tarnished. Yes tarnished.
Why is it that whenever I get the inspiration to start a new project I am faced with hiccups such as this? I tried to clean the needles with toothpaste (recommended by a fellow raveler), but that did not really work. I’m really considering buying a new set tomorrow at my LYS, but I am strapped for cash.
Other good news: I stood up for myself today at work. My kindness and eagerness to help had been misconstrued as weakness. Today I set the record straight(in the most respectful and tactful way) with my boss. It felt really good.
