A Pictures Worth A Thousand Words..........

But, I don't have any yet.
I'm still here! I haven't been blogging because I've been knitting. You'd be surprised how much you can get done when you limit your computer time. I've been working on a sweater in the morning with my cocoa and lace in the evenings when I sit in the living room with BTB.
Okay, no pictures of what I'm working on but here's the links so you can atleast see what it is. I'm doing this sweater- http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEspring03/PATTsitcomchic.html . I'm doing it in Cotton Ease, color Pistachio. I'm half done with the second sleeve and hope to put them on the circular needle with the body by tomorrow.
In the evenings I'm working on the Mystery Stole 2 KAL. I'm doing that in Knit Picks Alpaca Cloud in the color Iris. I doubled the yarn so it wouldn't be so light, but it's coming out very pretty. Hopefully that'll be done in the next week or so. I just started the second half and I can do about 1/2 of a chart in one night. There's 6 clues so 6 charts that you do twice. I even managed to get all of the stitches picked up from the provisional cast on. Here
is the link, with pictures if you're a Yahoo Groups member. I'm having a heck of a time getting the links in here, so hope it works.
So, nothing to show yet, but I'm knitting away. Going to see the Baby Girl tomorrow, and the oldest Baby Girl and taking them both out to lunch. Not sure what other college kids will be going but I'm sure there will be atleast one. They love having someone come and take them out to lunch once in awhile. And, well, I love doing it! We're slowing getting used to our Empty Nest but we still miss the kid like crazy! So, we'll drive and have lunch with her. Lots of knitting time for me that way.
Happy Knitting!

I think that cardigan will look great in the pistachio colour.

Hope your lunch with your girls went well!

You know the only time I blog is when I'm at work, and read blogs at work, because at home, that's my knitting time when I have free time. Oh and I run a small office, so I often have quite a bit of down time so the whole blog thing isn't taking away work time.

Can't wait to see your mystery stole... i'm on the last clue myself and need to tear myself away from this computer to get it finished :)

We had one go off to college over the weekend and have talked to him every day since Thursday. Still have one at home - I'm sure i'll be seeing the UPS guy more often when the nest is finally empty!

How did you like knitting in the alpaca cloud? I bought some, and it feels yummy.
