You've made my life so glamorous
You can't blame me for feeling amorous.
Oh, 's wonderful, 's marvellous...

Well, well, well, my first Knit-Along, and it's AUDREY!! (keyboardbiologist.net/audrey)
I'm not 100% certain that this is the sweater for me, but if it isn't, I know two young ladies who could certainly do it some justice. I'm most excited about the Knit-Along part, anyway, and am looking forward to the exchange and discussion with all those wonderful knitters.
I'm anxious to go yarn shopping; that will likely happen tomorrow, and I think it will be Calmer for me. I'm leaning toward red tones, but I'll wait 'til I have a look-see before committing. I have a $20 frequent buyer card from my LYS to use and a ball of Polar from the VK cable sweater (over there in the Completed album) that I can return, so the bite shouldn't be too bad. The last time I was there, my LYS had a good selection of Calmer in stock. Let's hope that's still true.
I was knittin' for the critters last night. It's a rather hodge-podge blanket with three or four Homespun colorways, but it'll be soft and cozy and that's what a kitty or pup will be most interested in. I really love some of those Homespun colorways.
Two things: 1) I probably watch more TV than I should (mostly dramas and old movies), and 2) I'm a big baby. Every single time I watch Extreme Makeover Home Edition, I end up wiping my tears on my sleeve. Being a big baby television watcher, you'd think I'd have some tissues handy. Not so, and I ended up with another damp sleeve again last night. It's not so easy to wipe your eyes on your sleeve while you're knitting a critter blankie, either...
Normally, I have Wednesday off during the work week, but for the next two, I'll have Monday -- that means a couple of 3-day weekends! Granted, one of those is Easter and I have no doubt that other people are making plans for at least some of my time. But this weekend will be mine and I'm gearing up to finish the tank top and to start sewing the chenille pieces together. I have a big window behind me in the office, another a bit further down, and then a big greenhouse window to my left. It's so nice and sunny today that I don't even have the office lights on!
