Can I Move to Harris Teeter?
So, the blogstalking thing didn't really pan out in time for this last weekend, and as we were pondering what to do, I brought up the bathroom at my local grocery store that left me completely taken off guard. I mean look: This is a GROCERY STORE people! Check out the baby changing station: I couldn't get over it. I mean, I know this is a nice grocery store in a rather pricey part of town, but still. Can I move in? Seriously. Wow. So there. That's something that took me completely off guard lately (though not so off guard as to not pull out my camera.) It was that or fall foliage. I figured I'd take the road less traveled and bring to you potty pr0n. Heh. And how about an update on my latest sock while we're here? This last weekend, the foot saw a lot of progress. This is my first time working with Size 0 needles, so it's been slow going up to now. I love the fabric that's resulting, and I'm pleased with the fit. Though I'm getting a good 10 stitches to the inch, 72 stitches is rather snug, but it fits. So, last night, I light a fire, and prepared for the heel. Now, I've decided I love the reverse heel flap on a toe-up heel. And I felt bad frogging Diamante, but I also knew it took 72 stitches and had a neat heel flap. So I went with it. And lo, we have a heel. And yes, that's a teeny weeny stitch marker with Swarovski Crystals hanging from it. I found them while bead shopping with Trillian42 last weekend. They're my birthstone, how could I pass them up? And I have teeny weeny jumprings, so why not use them for my size 0s? They fit perfectly. And it's pretty to look at. I'm also working on a Swallowtail Lace Shawl for Lacevember. But I really need to get a better progress pic than the one I posted over there. Let's just say, it's coming along really well.
