Rip! (not to worry, I'll find something wondrous to knit with it!)
Say hello to my second attempt at decadent Spiraluscious Mitts:
Claudia sock yarn in Chocolate Cherry. I hope this will be better, it will blend well with the STR Mustang Sally colorway I used in the Spiraluscious Cowl earlier in the year. A "not quite, but almost" set.
This week has flown by, and it's lovely to say that tomorrow is FRIDAY! Tonight, I had to run by the grocery store, as I needed a few odds and ends to perk up the Weight Watchers menus I'm working out. It happens to be in the same strip mall as Barnes & Noble, so I made a side trip:
I realized when I took the photo that the Knitter's says "Summer 2009" - am I slow or something? That cabled "ponchette" on the cover? Sure looks like winter to me!
But on pages 41-42? There's a cool Smocked Toque (Lite Lesson) by my new "neighbor/friend" from Sock Summit - Merike Saarniit that I think is gorgeous (especially in the pink and navy combo of SW Trading Company Vespera she used. You really need to check this out! I'll try to take a photo of the photo tomorrow night because Ravelry doesn't have one loaded to the pattern page, yet. :(
And btw, not that it means a thing? But Sela Ward on the cover of More? OH my. GORGEOUS! We were born on the very same day, in the same year, we're the same age. I should look so good.
She's got a new movie coming out. No question, I'll be there to see it. We're almost "twin-sister Cancers" - I guess that's the reason I feel like she's a sister from a different mother that I never met. Hahaha. (She'll never claim me, of course, but that's okay!)
