Goody Goody!

It was another payroll day so very busy at work, but I was delighted that Carole agreed to let me post this photo of the bag that will be on it's way to her tomorrow:

The Chocoholic Grand Mera! I love the way it turned out!

(I always drool over the fabric - NO, Carole, not literally, I promise! - but the chocolates look so REAL!)

But then I was drooling over something that arrived at my office today that I've waited a long time for. The last two balls of Kidsilk Haze for my own rendition of The Earth Stripe Wrap from Rowan 42:

I've been collecting this yarn a couple of balls at a time since the magazine came out last summer. The two balls of Trance (only one of a couple of the colors I chose that were actually called for in the original design) have been on backorder for almost 2 months! That's what you get, Rowan for creating a design everyone wants to knit!!

(oh, I know, they're crying all the way to the bank!)

What colors did I pick? (You see I look like death warmed over in the greens and browns of the original)
Trance
Smoke
Night
Hurricane
Violet
Dewberry
Mist
Splendor
Candy Girl
Blushes

I'm hoping I can keep myself from starting on this for a bit - I've got to get some socks finished, and Helsinki from the same issue of Rowan Magazine.

The bag is beautiful - looks like you chose the perfect lining fabric, too. Can't wait to see it in person!

Beware: I have a Meezer that thinks KidSilk Haze is "kitty crack". I kept it from her the whole time I knit a lace scarf. The first time I wore it she exclaimed "Wow!", and grabbed it with her long arm. A 50 cent-sized hole resulted. Sigh.

(She doesn't bother with other yarn, but I don't give her chances. When I run to the girls room, knitting goes on the mantle, out of reach.)

Ooh... Those colors are absolutely gorgeous! I can't wait to see what it looks like knitted up (which I know is not very supportive in terms of helping you to avoid casting on -- what can I say? I'm selfish that way!).

Hi Sallee,
This is off the subject, but I'm posting a quote on my blog that I read on the bottom of one of your emails awhile ... forgive quickly. I liked that. I put a link to your site. I can't find your direct email ... sometimers!
