Is the Glass Half Full, or Half Empty?

My nicely wound (hand wound, thank you very much) ball of yarn had been in a slippery ziplock baggie and wanted to roll around. I decided it might fit in a glass and, sure enough, it did! This works great now.
This Cherry Tree Hill suri alpaca is lovely to knit. You'll see I'm still on my bamboo needles. I switched over to the KnitPicks again for two rows but found I knit so slowly and carefully, so I switched back. I think I'll probably use these all the way through.

I'm on repeat 11 (of 14) of the first chart. It doesn't look like much here, but I think I'm going to be very happy with the color. There's a bit more green than shows in this photo.
I'm already thinking of starting a pair of really basic socks, though. I think I need some comfort knitting or a more portable project.

I'll have some yarn on the rocks, please. Now that's my kind of drink!
