New Improved Stuff!!! With Pictures!!!

My car is being fixed as I type this. Just in time for the really hot weather we’re expecting tomorrow (around 85°F). I will be happily air conditioned in my little car.

I got a really nice Thank You note and an awesome overnight tote bag (complete with company logo) from one of the Project Managers I support here. How cool is that? I can put maybe 4 or 5 sweaters plus all the yarn to knit them in there. Scary huh? But scary 'cause you know I'll do it.

It’s a holiday weekend here in the US and I plan on doing the same thing I did last year. Only this time I’ll be finishing up my Socktopia sock and Tomato sweater.

Knit Picks Shine Worsted in Crocus and Cream

Socks knit with Yarn Pirate "Daisy".

I’ve also been doing some crocheting. I have these hexagons to make a blanket of my own design. I’m using Caron Simply Soft (Dk Country Blue, Sage and off white) and Caron SS Shadows (Soft Merino). It is going to be so cool when I finish it.

And these few little babies to make the Babette Blanket from the Spring 2006 Interweave Crochet. See the Flicker Group for an idea of what the finished product will look like. I’m making it with Cotton Ease so I can keep it in my car for cold Pee Wee Football mornings and still be able to wash it easily when needed.

Mostly I’m planning a very quiet weekend. Last weekend was very busy full of family and parties and whatnot. Having three days in a row to chill out will be wonderful. I may even get a chance to do a little closet cleaning… Nahhhh – who am I kidding?

Oh man.. I'm gonna have to make a Tomato now... yours is the best colour I've seen on one, yet!

Hey chickie! Don't feel bad about that response you deleted--I liked it rambly. I love seeing everyone's responses short or long!!!!

(and I'm a doof, I know I have your email, but I'm at work and can't find it ;-) )

That is the yarn I should have made my Tomato in. Did you finish? I'm going over to the KAL to see if I see yours.
