current project: the microspun top from the spring edition of vogue knitting. double-stranded, it is working up fairly easily, without much splitting. i'm about 6 inches into the back.


i've neglected to mention that I have a FO!!! I completed the summer funnel sleeveless top. and yes, i made mistakes counting rows, and my finishing skills need work, but it is a wearable item! i'm really quite proud of myself!!

movie The Color Purple
music Sade or Me'Shell N'degeocello
food lasagna, being that i'm sure my seafood jones would naturally be curbed
knitting book, yarn & needles rowan book, unlimited rowan yarn and of course the infamous addi turbo needles

...would you take along to a deserted island for the nourishment of your soul?

i had some logistical problems with the drawstring purse. i only have 29" circulars, but the pattern calls for 24". i thought i could wing it anyway.....NOT. i could've waited to the following day, buy another circular and continue as normal...but nooooo. instead i simply cast on many, many additional stitches to accomodate the extra length of the circular. this bag is gonna be huge. (next time i'll use the proper tools).

i have no email. something's wrong with my yahoo groups account, and i'm not getting any mail. they are no help either. sent them an email yesterday, and as of yet, no response. this sucks. i'm going thru email withdrawal. but that is the least of my worries at the moment. i need a job. i think i'm about to get laid off...very soon. time to brush off the resume (again).
