So you wanna be a Rockstar? Uhhh, maybe later...

After letting the swatch for the Rockstar sit for a bit, the Calmer just isn't doing it for me. Well, it's not doing it for the Rockstar. It's simply not the right sub. I went on a knittyquest to try and find a silk/merino blend that would be affordable at 1300+ yards (the 1210 required + swatch + little roadbumps along the way), but to no avail. Alas, I think this cardi and I are not meant to be this winter. Besides which, I have plenty of pending wannabewipped projects on deck for which I already have the yarn for (what you see in the sidebar is just the tip of the iceberg my friends). So for now, Rockstar is going back into the binder. I may trot it out for next fall, or simply chalk it up to supernewbie shopping delirium and just swap it.

In other news, I finished the Honeymoon Cami this afternoon. It's in the washer right now. On hot. Hopefully shrinking.
