Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran 02I couldn’t resist! It’s a Shih Tzu puppy, so it looks like my boys when there were babies and knitting? Come on! πŸ˜‰

Today’s Pr0n got mostly used up ages ago. It went to make Fetchings for Tab, which she loves! I think I have enough for a second pair or some other small project. This is some seriously soft yummy stuff and I just love the purple. It’s Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran. YUM!

Clapotis Two

I cast off for Tree Jacket last night, now just to get it blocked! Expect to see a FO this weekend!

I’ve cast on for my second Clapotis, this one is for my sister by special request. It’s Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk, yum!

I’m also working a on shrug, that I’m sort of making up as I go. I’ll let you know how it works out πŸ™‚

I haven’t touched any of my other WiPs lately. I’m planning to cast on for the Central Park Hoodie this weekend and start working on the Hemlock Ring Blanket again. I need to get that thing finished before it gets warm, because no one wants a wool blanket on their lap when it’s hot out! I’ll probably work on the Melon Pattern Scarf when I’m itching for lace.

I got nominated for this award over at Ruby’s n Purls How cool is that? She says I “do Yarn Pr0n Fridays like no other” πŸ™‚ And Carol over a Knitting Knot nominated me too!

makemydayaward.jpgHere’s how it works: Give the award to up to 10 people whose blogs bring you happiness and inspiration and make you feel so happy about Blogland! Let them know by posting a comment on their blog so that they can pass it on. Beware! You may get the award several times!

I gotta admit picking 10 is going to be hard for me! I almost considered not doing it because I don’t want anyone to feel left out. But I also think it’s important to acknowledge the people who make a difference in our lives, so in no particular order, here are my 10

  • Robin over at Yarn Crawl – she’s a knitting inspiration! She knits so fast, she’s so nice and always helpful, plus did you know she has an almost encyclopedic memory of knitting patterns she’s looked at. Really, it’s amazing.
  • Sauntering Soul – Not a knitter, I read her blog for a slice of life πŸ™‚ What can I say? If we lived in the same city I’m 99% sure we’d be friends. She’s smart, funny, nice and real.
  • Sharon at Holly Knit Balls – I love her attitude and we’re a lot a like! πŸ™‚
  • Emily at Skyline Chilly – She was my upstream pal on my first (and last) Secret Pal. She was awesome as a pal, even better, when the exchange was over she kept on being awesome.
  • Turtlegirl76– she was one of the first knitting blogs I started reading. She always leaves helpful comments and suggestions. Just reading her knitting blog is an inspiration!
  • Weezelana over at Knittywhipped – she’s funny, she’s smart, she’s an awesome knitter. ‘Nuf said.
  • Megan at Life Stories of a Girl and Her Neuroses – Another non knitting blog. This one is always good for a laugh. She keeps it real and it’s always nice to know you’re not the last single girl on the planet πŸ™‚
  • Adrienne of Real Life: Live and Unscripted – she knits, sews, scrapbooks, does podcasts, takes great pictures, posts Throw Back Fridays, what doesn’t this girl do? And she does it all with an amazing attitude.
  • Kara over at Knitting Lemonade, she’s quitting her job to go live abroad. I am green with envy and I can’t wait to read about her adventures!
  • Lara at Yarn It – among other things, she’s going back to school and still finds time to knit!

Is that it’s just too chunky. Damn. It would have been perfect. It’s really too heavy for the top of the Cami and the ribbing doesn’t stretch and collapse like ribbing is supposed to do. Which sucks because the colors look awesome. So, what to do?

Vixen Camisole

I’m thinking this Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran I have in my stash will work. It was hard to get a picture of the purples together. It’s a little darker than the purples in the Seduction, but I think it’s complimentary. So I’ll be ripping back and knitting forth with this. Thoughts? Suggestions?
