So Happy Its Thursday...

I'm glad that this week is almost over. Every day that passes is one day closer to the end of heat for the girls. I think that Morganna is done and Lizzie is only a few days away. It'll be nice to not have to keep one eyeball on the dogs at all times. Most folks think that you just have to keep the male away and everything would be fine. Which is true - except that sometimes the girls are a little forward and are willing to meet more than halfway. Of course, my two girls are hussy. Sigh.

Since Wednesday is Bruce's Rally class day, I've decided that this Thursday will be "what's on my needles" day. Hey, if Lime & Violet can do it, why can't I?

First up -- the Storm Water Scarf (Ravelry Link). I've been working on this while I'm commuting to/from work, so who knows how long it'll take to get done. I'm using Sea Silk in the Mermaid colorway. When I first saw the skein, it really reminded me of the ocean -- now that it is knitted up, it reminds me of black purls. (Linky to picture of skeins -- not mine so not being shown) What does it look like to you?

You don't get a ton of stitch detail from this picture, but isn't it cool?

Another picture -- highlighting my Signature Needles. I really like these needles -- nice and pointy.

I'm working on the Rosebud Shawl - a free pattern from Briar Rose Fibers. It is knitting up very nicely. Simple pattern, easy to memorize -- nice for driving or just hanging around watching TV. It started with The Husband winding the skein of Fourth of July in to three continuous cakes. Aren't you impressed with his "leaning tower of yarn"?

Here's the WIP:

This picture really shows the pattern of stitches, but the color got really wonky for some reason:

I also got some stuff from etsy in the mail, but you're going to have to wait until tomorrow to see it. :D

I almost forgot: Today is The Husband's Birthday. And if you ask how old he is, his response will be, "Younger than Errs."

Happy Birthday my love.

love the leaning tower of yarn - do you just move the old ball up and start a new one? I was trying to figure out how to do this last night with a huge skein that wouldn't fit on the winder...
