Project Spectrum:Blue

Well, I don't have any blue FOs to show you. But I took pics of blue things anyway.

Edit: The yarn up in the corner is Sparkle by Suss. I picked it up at a sale she had a while back but I don't think she sells it anymore. The last time I was in there I didn't see any and it's not listed on the website either.

Sweet Pea in Action

Why Christian is looking like that, I'm not sure. We tried to take this pic several times, but his sister-in-law decided that he's like Chandler on Friends and incapable of posing for a picture. hee hee. It's still a mystery to me who chose the tuxes for the groomsmen.

Guess who caught the bouquet and the garter?

Thanks Secret Pal!

I got home the other day to find this waiting for me

You're looking at a skein of Alchemy bamboo...oh joy! It's from my One Skein Secret Pal. I've never treated myself to such a nice yarn. I have to figure out something to do with it. Any suggestions? And she also included a treat for Wolfen, very sweet. Maybe he'll gnaw on this instead of yarn, hats and wrist guards (the kind you wear when rollerblading) in the world is that appetizing?

Bad Dog!

Well, at least it wasn't my yarn this time.

What I've Been Up To

I know it's been a while, but I have been crafting! I spent the weekend in MD with my friend Kenyatta. I took the bus so I had plenty o' time to "Do Stuff"...especially when you hit rush hour traffic in 3 different states (whew!)
The Sweet Pea shawl is pretty much done. I just need to add the fringe.

The next time you see this, I'll be dressed for a wedding.
The Somewhat Cowl only needs it's cowl and the (blue)Green Gable, well, let's just say it won't be done in time to be an FO for this month's Project Spectrum. It's off the needles AGAIN. It was too big when I tried it on and after I ripped back, I didn't put the stitches back on the needle correctly so the raglan increase is all funky. I'm letting that project marinate since I've already cast on for the Pia top that's in Rowan mag 35.

A Crawlin We Will Go!

Yarn crawlin, that is. On Saturday, despite the rain, we went on the first part of the yarn crawl. We started off at The Point, of course.

My Point purchase. You can never have too many patterns, can you?
Then we headed over to Purl and Purl Patchwork.

Edit: Here is a pic of us (Liz, myself and Katy knit while Maria spins)waiting for Purl to open. Luckily, the restaurant next door neglected to pull up the awning the night before and we were able to take shelter from the rain.

There is a halter pattern in the Rowan book that I must add to the 'To Do'list.

My last purchase of the day was this fabric and a pattern for the Amy Butler Cabo halter. I really thought about 'being sick' yesterday so I could work on it but decided to save it for my No Knitting Friday.
After lunch, we continued on to Suss and hung out there for a while to wait out the rain. Everyone else went to Knitty City after that but I had to head home. Oh, and when we were in Soho, I had a celebrity sighting of Julianna Margulies.

Craft Declaration

I've decided that I spend too much time knitting......gasp! The first thing I do when I roll out of bed is knit, I spend my lunch hour knitting, I knit when I get home in between looking at other people's knitting blogs. It's all too much, because I really do have other interests. So I've decided that since I have summer Fridays and get out of work early, I WILL NOT KNIT during this free time. Any other crafts are fair game. I recently purchased Subversive Cross Stitch, and I want to have a jewelry trunk show sometime this summer (but I can't sell it if I don't make it), and I haven't read a book in ages. So I'm declaring Fridays to be No Knitting Fridays.

PS...I'm in a better mood. The music from Roll Bounce was my knitting soundtrack at the park today.
