I went to Windsor Button last night after work. I needed a full set of size 1 dpns (I could find 3 needles at home) and maybe a second skein of similar yarn for the yarn wig for things like highlights.
Now Stephanie has been talking about the Kushu Kushu scarf all week long. I've been thinking about the Kushu Kushu scarf for way over a year. I was in New York at Habu in October, and did not allow myself to buy the Kushu Kushu scarf kits they had available.
I did allow myself that day to buy a single cone (2 ounces) of the silk stainless steel. I had some Kid Silk Haze at home in black, but I didn't want to make a black and white scarf (my stainless steel is in white). So, I fell down and bought the new Manos del Uruguay lace: 70% baby alpaca, 25% silk and 5% cashmere.
I'm not sure I want the end product to be white. I don't know if anyone has tried to dye the silk stainless steel, but I think I'm going to swatch a piece with both yarns together and see how well it takes the dye (and what it feels like afterwards).
Another project for after Intercon!
oh, and I only have 2 games to costume for, because my Sunday morning game is a horde game. I won't have just a single character. This is good, because of less costuming, and bad, because I probably would have picked another game if it had indicated it was a horde style game on the sign up page.
ETA: Oops, I am part of the horde game, but I have one of the full length characters. I am the awesome creator of Lolcats!
