Craft update for the weekend:
I'm still at 576 stitches on Ruby Slipper, but those familiar with the Knitter's Almanac version of the Zimmerman Pi Shawl will understand my joy at finishing the first set of diamonds. I actually moved the second set of diamonds up a little bit because I'm worried about running out of yarn. So far this ball is holding out, but it's ball six of seven total and I still need to do the edging. I think the edging will take an entire ball, so I'm hoping... the second set of diamonds may turn out slightly smaller than the first. Amusingly, the bamboo needles that Melissa was kind enough to pick up for me are turning a delicate shade of pink from all the red yarn. :)
I didn't put the sleeves of Dancing Vines in yet, and Ribbi Cardi remains unchanged. Must... get... zipper!
I suppose the big crafting news is that I got my rejection from Knitty today. It's sad, but I understand. I just hope they have a cool issue, so I'm not that angry about being passed up for it! :)
