I started the Boteh scarf
) on Monday, and have been kind of obsessed ever since:
It's already Lani sized - and it actually goes well with her, too. :P Using Claudia's Handpainted in Blueberry Toast. Of course, this isn't on my list of goals. :P
I've also started a sweater - Manhattan
from Pure Noro. (Rav link
). I'm using Noro Cashmere Island in 14.
And finally, I scored some gym equipment on Craigslist last night - Olympic bar and plates, and bench/bar rack/preacher curl/leg extension set-up. It was one of the weirdest Craigslist experiences so far - our best guess is this guy (who I'm only assuming is 16 because he said he had a job, otherwise I would have said 14) was told by his rich parents to get rid of the equipment, and that he could keep whatever he got. There were some dumbbells lying around, and we asked if he wanted to sell those (with the rack he had for them). He said sure, and then he was struggling to come up with a price, and I offered him the only $20 extra that I had with me, and he took it with great enthusiasm. Made me sorry I didn't have smaller bills. Anyway, we got everything for between 20-25% of what it was actually worth, which made me feel like I was stealing from a child, but this child also lied on the listing (said everything was a month old, which it clearly wasn't from the dust level, but it was all in the barely used condition promised), so whatever. But seriously, would you let your teenager deal with Craigslist people unattended? I wouldn't dream of going without Brad. Anyway, we have some cleaning, laying down of rubber flooring, and set-up to do, but then there will be pictures of my pretty awesome home gym. :)
