Hooray sweaters!

So the only up side to DD’s bout with pink eye (woo.) is that I had time to be a knitting machine! Here they are!

The purple one is a Trendsetter pattern made with ScoubiDu for a good friend of mine’s baby to be!


The blue one is a Debbie Bliss from Cotton for All Seasons. I used Plymouth Encore.

Lastly, is my Tomato! I used Mission Falls Cotton instead of the Blue Sky Alpaca and I’m very happy with how it turned out. I’ll take a picture of it worn soon.

So here’s a question. J’s Thomas the Tank Engine DVDs have an option where you can play it continuously over and over. Why on earth would I ever want to do that? Seriously.

So close…

I’m so close to actually having some FO’s so no blogging till I’m done! Whew.

I am sad. :(

Today I learned that Madeleine L’Engle died. I adore her books. I have all my life. One of my earliest reading memories is reading A Wrinkle in Time in the bedroom that I shared with my sister. I remember being so engrossed in the book that I didn’t want to play, eat, or even watch TV. I probably read that book at least a hundred times and as recently as a year ago. I’ve read pretty much most of what she’s written, including some of her autobiographical and religious essays, but I have to admit my favorites are still her fiction. When I was in the eighth grade, we had an assignment to write our favorite author and she wrote me back! Not a form letter, but a real honest letter, just like one my grandmother would have written me, telling me about her day and her dogs and how nice it was to hear from a young person who also liked to write. I’m still a little teary. I might be that way today.
