Dearest SP

Should you happen across any of the Layette books from Anny Blatt/Bouton D'or, and wonder who would love them - it would be me!

Just in case you didn't know!

Weather

If Rita is beating on your door, like it is Monkee's, and Laura's, and you know, Most of Texas - Be Careful and Be Safe!

However - if you live in Oklahoma, Arkansas or Tennessee - enjoy it while you can - cause you're next!

Trellis

I am in love with the sweater! I want to work on it every moment so that I can see it completed. This is the first real cable-work that I've done, and I consider it practice for my Eris.

Here is the back:

I'm on to the two pieces of the front - I'm knitting them at the same time, so I hope that I can remember to add the button holes at the right time! I'll do the sleeves at the same time too.

If I have enough yarn (and I think I will), a matching baby coronet is planned to go with the sweater. Its a Christmas gift for my niece.

Just a bit -

No picture of Kiri yet, but I did get her finished and blocked. I'm going to see if Mom can get a picture of it tonight.

Kat - Yes, I will be bringing it to Sit n Stitch.

Currently on needles - Trellis from Knitty in bright green Caron Simply Soft for one of the neices. The back is 1/2 finished!

Kiri in the works

OK, so over at Danielle's blog, I correctly guessed what she was working on. And then I just had to run my big mouth and tell her that I was making one too - only I don't have any pictures!

OK, but here are the Details! We are both making KIRI, from All Tangled Up. She, of course, is using her own yarn. (Its gorgeous - check it out!) While I am using handpainted lace in lettuce.

I completed 8 repeats of the main chart, and I've finished the 2nd row of the edge chart - so expect a FO picture next week.

Also - that handpaintedyarn.com yarn? I will have a ton left over, so may make a second Kiri!

Blog for Relief

To help get the word out about what WE as a family are doing to help Hurricane Katrina victims, I've joined the Blog for Relief.

If you are a parent, please sit with your children and explain what is going on, and then use this time to teach them the importance of giving.

My sons will be building Gift Boxes for Feed the Children's Kid Stuff USA. We are going to combine the lists from the School Days Box and the Holiday Box.

My oldest has even said he would give up his birthday money.
