Sorry to have been incommunicado for the last week. We have had a visit from my snappy sister Sally, so we’ve been super busy showing her all the local sites.
She got to see the manatees:
And about everything else Daytona has to offer except the Nascar and dog racing. It has been such a fun visit. Sally is at an exciting point right now. She had been the web guru at a big online retailer (can’t tell you who) and she has now founded her own company, Fixpert.com. We are so excited. She’s already so busy with web sites we thought she was going to have to skip Daytona, but fortunately she made it.
Did I hear you? Did you ask “but what about knitting?” Well, if I must.
1) I am ALMOST done with the caramel colored cardigan on #2 needles. (Never again will I knit a cardigan on #2 needles!) We watched the Bourne Supremacy the other night, and isn’t it funny that when you are watching something suspenseful that you knit faster? The problem is I have exactly two yards left of the yarn, and I still need to sew the seams and do the button band and collar. The new cone of yarn from Webs should be here by Monday. I really want to finish this before
2) The one-piece purse is done. Hopefully I will have snappy photos for you tomorrow. I am thinking it turned out so well I might try to sell the pattern. I have been using the purse for a week, and it holds a grand amount of stuff, plus I get complements galore on it….This might be the pattern to try to complete one of my New Year Resolutions.
3) Anouk is started. Thank you all SOOOOOO much for the advice on the elephant’s back. He has had a face lift and looks better. I have knitted up to the knees, so we’ll see how he looks in a day or so.
