I don't know about the shrug, people... I didn't get near as much time as I thought I could steal yesterday. I'm not even half way through it and there's only 11 hours till we leave. Sometime in that 11 hours I have to go buy the dress (I know exactly which one, but the German stores were closed yesterday - Three Kings Day), make myself pretty and... oh yea... there's the kids. Funny how as you increase stitches the rows never seem to end. My bud, Nilda, asked yesterday what size needles.... 3.5 mm. I've told you before... I'm nuts, so that shouldn't come as a surprise to you by now. In my defense, I am a very loose knitter.
Yarn Harlot has started something huge! I could never match her mittens or Sandy's, but I do have a little something I can share. You know that little bowl of purple handspun that's been on my sidebar since I started the blog? Here's a bigger photo. That's 8 ounces of scrumptious handspun Falkland singles in hand-dyed varigated purples that Steph is adding to her names of donators for the giveaway. What fun! Thanks for the opportunity to help Steph!
If you haven't yet, jump on the bandwagon and purchased Susan's sock pattern. All proceeds go to the relief efforts for the Tsunami victims. So go ahead and click the button and feel good about it! The button was donated by Beth. If you use it, be sure to save it to your own server. Thanks.
Lastly, I'd like to thank Jen and La for listing me in their Best of 2004 list. Very cool. Thank you.
Don't expect to check back tomorrow and see the shrug, but you never know. My hands might go into overdrive and spit out some serious knitting today.....
