Thank You DJ!

How do you like my "redesigned blog?" I can't believe how much better it looks. DJ, from the EZasPi Yahoo group (check out my sidebar, I have my groups on there!) offered to help me and did she ever! Doesn't it look great? Thanks again DJ! Awesome!

Stash Enhancement!

This is Shimmer and Shadow from Knitpicks (top photo) and the box full at the bottom is Palette - 100% Peruvian Wool, also from Knitpicks. Wow! Wish the picture had come out better, but this actually takes my breath away every time I open the box. I think I'm going to order another box, to use, and just save this one for looking at. It's the colors of the color wheel plus neautrals. Isn't it something? Hey, if you don't have a box, order one, it's a GREAT price for one of each color.

I'm still plugging along on the border of my Pacific Northwest Shawl. I'm loving it, but am so ready to go on to my Peacock Shawl that I'm dragging my feet. And, having to do 28 shells along the edge is a little, um, boring! As for the Peacock shawl, I got the pattern and yarn yesterday plus 2 scarf patterns and ruby and copper zephir for them. I started one of the scarves just to see how I manage with that little itty bitty yarn but doing an oblong object, not a provisional cast on. Hey, not bad, I'm on row 8 or 9 already but, it's still some itty bitty yarn!

Going to the big Louisianna/Monroe vs. Georgia Bulldogs game tomorrow! The hubby and baby girl are so excited! She had a special invitation from the Director of Music. We get lunch, the football game, she gets a private lesson with a music professor and then the football game. After the football game we get to watch the Post Game performance of the Red Coats. What really sucks - we have to leave home at 3:30 A.M.! Dang, at that hour I can't even knit on the way - it's still dark isn't it? What time does the sun come up? Well, it'll be a fun day and we're looking forward to it.

Have a great weekend everyone!
