Just got home from a fantastic dinner with BadgerDan at our favorite local restaurant (& a stopover at the Chapters bookstore).
My birthday gift?
It’s a Samsung S2 Digital Audio Player, aka “The Pebble”. Now if we can just fool the software into thinking that I’m running Windows instead of Linux, I’m all set.
As for what I’ve been up to these last couple of weeks – hooboy.
Where do I start?
How about some FOs?
My February Lady Sweater is done:
and it fits like a dream:
It’s knit out of “the good stuff” – 2 balls of Noro Kureyon (col. 150) and 5 balls of Queensland Collection Kathmandu Aran Tweed (col. 120). The buttons are mother of pearl, natural side out. I think this is the nicest sweater I’ve made to date.
Hot off the needles today is my Hemlock Ring Blanket:
The result of much late night lace knitting, ripping out and redoing on larger needles – OMG soooooo worth it though.
Some small stuff:
The first pair of the promised “oodles of baby socks” to an online friend of mine who found out over the Christmas holidays that the IV was successful and is finally pregnant with her first child. YAY!!!! (Elaine – expect socks – lots of ’em!)
There are definitely more where those came from!
