has it really been a week already?
Wow, I have been an apathetic blogger lately. I have been reading all of my usual suspect's blogs but have even been kinda lazy about comments. I think it's the last teensy bit of winter blues. I just want to lay on the couch more. We had some gorgeous weather a few weeks back, and now 6 inches of snow this morning, ack! So I am going to try to resolve 1. to be a better blogfriend and 2. to have something to blog about - a.k.a knitting.
I haven't been completely fruitless, but a pokey pete indeed.
Several days late for my 9-year-old's birthday, I presented her with a February Sweater for her American Girl. Green is her favorite color and I had this gorgeous Funky Carolina Handspun marinating. I mostly un-knit it at knitting group this week and then worked on it on the train to Chicago. We went to the American Girl Store as her birthday-o-rama. It was kind of funny, my mom, sister and I taking my daughter to AG - yes, three grown-ups - one child. It was a good time - Lib got a new doll, lunch was yummy and the whole day was about perfect. BTW, I have a request for a matching beret. That's the best gift ever.:)
The first three pictures are actually representative of the colorway. I am trying to grow into my camera and went about fiddling with white balance. One of my co-workers is an amatuer photographer and he has dubbed Friday "camera day" - where he tries to teach me stuff. White balance was one of my assignments. It's kind of fun.
I have also been spinning - actually, I feel a little bad to have abandoned my knitting a bit in place of the wheel. I spun up my Funky Carolina Scrappies.
Now, I really need to cast on Ishbel. Need.
