Oh, the pressure
A lucky streak!


VestyThe sock yarn that I won in Cindy's VestySweater Contest at was in yesterday's mail!  That fabric bag that the yarn is sitting on?  I think Carrie made that -- incredible!  It is lined with a complementary fabric and there are some pockets inside.  It's St. Brigid's new home -- and it's roomy enough that the new shawl is residing there, too.  Gorgeous!!  There was also a little straw bag and three handmade cards.  Wow, much more than I was expecting.  Thanks, Cindy!


There's progress on the Shapely Shawlette.  I think it's going to be very pretty and very warm.  This yarn is a little heavier than the alpaca I used for my own.  Shawl2Here's a close-up.  It's not quite that "teal" in real life.

I had a very nice lunch with the grrs yesterday at Atlanta Bread Company.  I ordered my order-taker's favorite lunch (the new turkey sandwich with cranberries), so he bought me a cookie.  I shared it.  I brought my knitting in, but I did not knit.  Gab, gab, gab.  I was humored by the twists and turns of our conversation -- from Wal-mart to football to the Middle East and back to Wal-mart, interspersed with talk of our families and what we've all been up to since our last get-together.

SockI did make some progress on the home-front yesterday, but it could have been better.  My multi-tasking skills were AWOL.  Why wasn't I doing laundry while I was paying the bills?

One last look at that cute ball of sock yarn!  There will be sock-knitting at Chez Knitorious someday.



Beautiful sock yarn! I'm drooling......;-)


Beautiful sock yarn! What kind is it? Your shawl is faboo, too. What kind of yarn is that?


LOVE the yarn in the shawl. Did I miss something? What is that?!


Your shawls looking great AND sock yarn, see you just have to do it!


Lucky grrl! Very nice and make those socks soon. We all have multi-tasking issues..they aren't all they're cracked up to be anyway! LOL


What a nice Cindy surprise! Love the bag. Shapely Shawl is beautiful too.

I can't stop thinking about the turkey sandwich and cranberries...


Glad you like everything. The sock yarn is from Bizyhands off Ebay. Handspun..just wonderful when knit up. Mary at Knitting Notes is how I found out about the yarn.


I'm so glad I just saw Cindy's comment! That sock yarn looked so familiar & for good reason~ I just bought some from "bizyhands" myself. It feels wonderful, doesn't it?

Do you know what sock pattern you are going to use yet? :)


Great looking sock yarn and the bag is lovely too. I love Carrie's bags. Shawl is looking great too. Sounds like a terrific lunch with the girls.


This is great. I ask for photos. I get photos! Beautiful shawl. Does this mean you've never made socks??????
