July 31 - Past My Bedtime, But Here I Am

I just HAD to post before turning in. My mind won't shut down. I am currently knitting a copper bamboo yarn (Bonsai) sweater in all time fav stitch - feather and fan. The pattern is called "Liesl" by Ysolda Teague

This yarn is a dream to knit with and it's drape is wonderful! I designed and made a v-neck tank top with it in green and I love the way it feels. I don't have photos of the green one yet. I don't know what it is, but I'm having a hard time getting photos ready to post. Maybe it's because I've just got too much to do. Tomorrow will start out with making a new to do list and then I'll see about marking some things off!

This week we are having some foundation work done on the house and it is making me a nervous wreck! I don't think I've had time to actually REST since before going to North Carolina. Knitting is helping me stay sane - I hope.

Leavin' On A Jet Plane

Well, I thought I'd get a shot in here really quick. I'm off in the early am (dark:thirty) to visit my cousin in North Carolina. I really do hate flying, but it's the only way we (Mom and I) can get there! My cousin has promised a yarn shop visit - yippeee - and I'm looking forward to visiting a state I've never been in. I'm taking socks to knit in the airports and on the planes. I did finish all the socks I had planned to wear on the trip and will have pics up when I get back next week.

Quick pic:This is my Charlotte's Web Shawl - unblocked. I made it with Koigu and finished it in 10 days!

I better get to bed so I'll wake up!
