Blue flecks and Rowan's Beau sweater in Kathmandu
in Aran weight. Al is making this sweater for Fireman daddy. Deadline: Fall 08. Al can only find time to knit Sat a.m. from 9-11 during one of her classes. I admire her sticktuitiveness. I know many of you work on a certain thing at certain times and that makes a FO over time. I'm such the impatient knitter, but I suppose if that was the only time I had to knit, it could see me through.
I took the photo in the little blue spring flowers to highlight the blue flecks in the charcoal yarn. See 'em. Go ahead squint. Or enlarge the picture.
The contest has been such a fun thrill for me. I so love going to littleknowns like me and reading their blogs. Full of incredible knits, full of wisdom, full of their own unique style. The biggest surprise is that Rachel O. is a junior high lurker.
Well sometimes commenter, she thinks! Now Rachel O, I adore that you read the blog for a little levity. Now Rachel O, we have to protect your identity and all but tell your mom I'll send you some winner yarn just b/c I want to encourage you. If she agrees let me know in a comment, and, we'll connect so you win some yarn.
All of the canker sore remedies are much appreciated. I am still looking for a sweeper. The dog breath has improved with a chlorophyl type greenie thing!
You are such smart blogfolk. Thanks
