The swatch was just about perfect: even selvages and square, but drapey, sett. I'm wrapping stripes to decide what the final version will be.
Also, the stand for the Flip arrived today, though I'm not sure I'm in the mood to do more tonight than count hardware.
And lastly, I got an email from a very dear friend with a picture of his newborn granddaughter wrapped in the Aran blanket I knit for his son in 1981. I'm so amazed that it was in such good condition and that they still had it.
