For Anna and others...

So here are the couple of things I didn't mention or show last time. One was the log cabin blanket I'm working on and it's progress. Of course here it looks like crayola crayons but I promise in real life all the colors are a lot richer and just plain nicer. Also there goes my new birthday watch for scale:-), the blanket is all garter stitch so it's great mindless knitting.
Also, when I was at Knitch for the YH I got a ball of Rowan calmer because everyone always seems to be going ape nuts over it and I wanted to see what all the fuss was about. There should dang near be platinum chards spun into it between how much it cost and how much people rave...I like the color I picked. Anyway, I don't really know what I'm going to make out of this one ball but I'll think of something. I'm leaning toward a hat because they are quick
Coming up lots of traveling and activities, lots of movies, and more knitting. Yesterday was my birthday and we/I had a blast. I'm almost thirty now....

There is a hat called Aura in the Rowan Calmer book. It's a little lace number...check it out...quick, easy and takes one ball! :)
