Sunk to the Lowest Common Denominator

I am decidedly sub-par. Apparently pay-it-forward works in the viral world. Having escaped every scourge that ran rampant this winter, it is now my turn to be overcome by any microscopic whatever that flits through here. That, or I have been laid flat by a 36 hour and counting allergy attack which resists at best and ignores at worst whatever medication I throw at it.

I know I said I was sick of swatches, and I am, but that's all I've got for you today. I am not delirious and have no intention of attempting to work on the Bubbly while I'm impaired. Even the crochet was too complicated. I am, however, happy to report that both the Calico and the Portofino survived the washer and dryer, although the Calico contracted a bit more than I expected (note the dip on the teal swatch).

USPS was nice enough to leave me some yarn today. Two new colors of Pima Tencel, red and blue.

Two new contrast yarns. Berroco Zen Colors in #8170/Mindfulness and Portofino in #3/Foliage.

One new visual. Pathetic, isn't it?

Well, I told you I was only up to swatching. If you're all very good, maybe I'll go back to John's sweater and have rounds and rounds (and rounds) of dark green stockinette to show you tomorrow.

Your swatches are moving nicely along the color spectrum -

Beau(uuuu)tiful colors...I may have to start a love affair with Pima Tencel. After I've finished the twelve other projects waiting for me to not have finals anymore (two down, two down.). But it's always good to have a goal, yeah?
