Pictures, as Promised!

Okay then, here we go!

The completed knitting of Hush-Hush:

Promise a modeled pic along with all the details as soon as the ribbon is put on. hopefully soon! (forgot to take pics of garter in progress. oh well :p)

Next up, my wonderful package from Fee! These cookies are sooooo good, Bezzie! The traditional HobNob, but in mini form with chocolate cream in the middle! Oh, yum. And LOOSE PG tips, my favoritest tea ever. I am so excited to try loose tea in my nifty steeper thingie from the Container Store. And the yarn Pr0n!!! I never have this kinda photo-age!

Yarn is freedom spirit by Twilleys of Stamford in such beautiful colours! 262 yards total of a light worsted will make me a lovely scarf. hey wait, would it work for a mini Clapotis??? OH JOY! I wonder.....

And last but most certainly not least.... Tucker drove us into the city on a quite frigid, blustery, and snowflakes in the air April day in Chicago..... (SO typical!) to meet Amy!!! I think it was so great to actually see the garments from the book. I dearly want the light blue tiny-cabled sweater out of Rowan Calmer, but it'd need to totally be lengthened, and I don't wanna think of the cost of that...ugh. But here we are, and it was fab to see Kristen again.

I learned how to drive the forklift/picker at work today! The one where you actually go up and down WITH it, to pull boxes of books off of high shelves in the warehouse. Kinda thrilling, actually. We just won't tell my mom. She doesn't like the thought of me using the regular forklift you walk behind to get things down, when i worked at the grocery store. hehe all in all a good day and i'm feeling pretty good =D

and now i need some sleep...when us super-pale gals don't get much sleep, it really shows around the eyes....

working on it!

hi! I promise I have been knitting things. I am just way lazy. Plus i am rarely home when the sun is out to take any decent pictures. I have finished the knitting portion of Hush Hush and I have ribbon and strap findings on hand. Now to attach it all and weave ends. I have an entire skein of Gloss left to play with at will. I also finished the knitting portion of my garter; now to sew up and add ribbon and elastic. Which I may wait til closer to do ( so the fit is perfect)

Now to knit flowers! And tomorrow Tucker and I drive into the city to meet AmyKnitty! Yay!!!

I also got a FAB package from Fee!!! Fabulously soft wool in gorgeous varigates, PG Tips LOOSE tea (mmmm! my favorite!) And HobNob Creams! ohhhhh they are goooooooooooood

pics soon.
