Joce Is a "Bad" Influence! *wink*

I cast on again...and Joce said she was enabling me with a chant of "Cast on! Cast on!" from all the way across the country, so I guess I can blame her for my weakness? You'll see what I mean in a minute.

Today? I finished up an order for Nana Sadie Rose:
This is a first, it's pinwale corduroy! (And it will only ever be available in the Mera-to-Sadie sized bags) It's a little more expensive (depending on the size of the bag) but it does make up nicely. The pink Cutey Pirates is a Michael Miller print...
Here's a shot of the inside. I love the print in the large file folder pocket, don't you? It coordinates nicely with the flower in the outside print.

Ok. Now, as if I don't have enough on the needles? I just couldn't put off casting on for Shawl That Jazz (Ravelry link). For one thing, the yarn was calling me, badly - the blues, taupes, and amethyst tones? Heaven. It's the Beached colorway of Blue Moon's BFL Sport. For another thing? Joce finished hers. It's gorgeous. And I was envious. I am loving the colorplay in the yarn:

And I realized quickly that I'd need stitch markers to keep myself straight, because knitting garter easily becomes hypnotic with me (or perhaps I should put that another way, it becomes meditative?) so I went off to find my favorite stitch markers in the whole world:
The ones from Weeones. (I love her sheep, too)

So. My Sunday was full (I also did laundry). And if you'll excuse me? I'm off to listen to Andre Previn piano jazz and knit Shawl That Jazz!

I kept meaning to tweet you but I wanted to say my Nana Sadie Rose back made a PERFECT small purse to carry with me at the comic book convention this weekend!
The larger inside pocket was the exact right size for my phone and wallet, and bringing a sock to knit definitely helped pass the time when my hubby went off to something I didn't want have interest in.

Who me? (flutters eyelashes) ;)

I'm happy to enable such a gorgeous shawl -- look at those colors!! And I love the jazz plan, that's definitely the right way to knit this one. Enjoy!

(BTW, love the bag - that inside fabric is perfect with the pirates!)

What a cute bag!! Argh you are SO evil teasing me like that! I am definitely going to have to order one from you when I save up the cash. My darn husband just HAD have that shoulder surgery, bah!

Those stitch markers are also ADORABLE!!! I couldn't help but look through her other stitch markers on Etsy and they are all just darling.

Keep on knitting!

Good morning Huggy Bear,

Your pink pirate is adorable and all I can say is "Go Joce!" You keep on enabling Knitnana and she won't have the time to tempt me with bags! :) Do we have a deal?

Enjoy your projects! SWAK!

Love the colors for the shawl! I think it's a very pretty pattern, but I'm not sure I can do that much garter stitch. Looking forward to seeing yours!

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
