gimme some water...

Did anyone recognize that title from an Eddie Money song? He was just at our County Fair...a local band opened for him, I find that a little sad but anyways...


It is a new Project Spectrum round, water...blues, purples, black. Well, from looking at my stash - I clearly like blue and purple and this round will apparently give me a chance to really go stash diving. yay! I am sputtering to the end of my gull lace bodice on my February Sweater - I'm loving it, though I am curious how much it will stretch when blocked, and I am praying it will fit - that is "fit while buttoned". But lo and behold, it is blue - so it fits nicely with PS. I am also planning to cast on for the Stacked Cowl using Mama Blue Troika Sport in Trifle, a lovely glisten-y purplely, brown. I figure that will be a simple but fabulous hospital project, if I can't focus on the FLS. The cowl pattern was created by Sour Cherries, a truly pretty blog to read.

Thank you to everyone for your kind words, thoughts and prayers, I truly believe in the power of prayer - I'm knitting some into my sweater today. Last night, I spent the evening with my *gramma*, she is so strong and her faith is just unshakable. We talked about surgery and she believes when her number is up, well, that is it - though she added she was sure God would guide her surgeon's hand - how cool is that?

**I swear, I thought this was one way how to spell grandma until adulthood because I had been writing to my dear "gramma" since I could sound out words - I must have been hooked on phonics... Seriously, I quilted her a wall hanging for her apartment that had "Gramma" on it in big letters - when I hung it up... THAT was when it dawned on me, wait that is not "one" of the spellings for grandma. Doh!**

So drink in some water with me- imagine purples and blues coursing through your fingers in the shower, put your toe in, come splash with me!

One last thing - all of this talk of praying reminds me there is an awesome drawing going on over at earthchickknits - her story is pretty amazing - the prizes are breathtaking. A teeny donation might just get you a big prize!:)

I think "gramma" is perfect! My own is ever practical and has always signed our cards XXX OOO Gma & Gpa. She'd be tickled pink to receive a quilt that reflected that...which gives me an idea...

Many prayers heading your way -- your gramma sounds like an amazing woman. :)
