On the Other Hand...

... There is always the yarn to keep me centered. Wanna see my new goodies from Twist Yarns?

Some Malabrigo laceweight ought to straighten me right out!! I'm planning two (one of each color) lacy neckerchiefs for a little brightness and warmth this winter. I can't believe how soft these are!! And reasonably priced!

And 140 yards of some beautiful handspun by Chasing Rainbows Dyeworks. Yummy!!

My mom and I will share the resulting scarf. USC Football here we come!!!

Attempt #2 of the Retro Redux Shrug from Lace Style worked like a charm!! It's Cascade 220 in Straw with an added crochet edge in black Cascade 220. I LOVE IT! I'd wear it every day, but then again, it's wool and the weather won't quite permit... Darn! Where is Fall already?

I started a new pair of socks. Hedera from Knitty. I like this pattern! Jawoll Cotton blend. The yarn hides the stitches a bit, but I think once it's on a foot, all will be quite well.

And last and possibly least, the first 4 inches of the Notre Dame Pullover from Interweave Knits Summer 07. Double Seed Stitch in white Cascade Superwash. Not much to look at right now...

Not that soft either... Hoping for a miracle? Or using what I've got? Yes.

USC Football scarves? Is it that time of year already?

I'm going to try really hard to get Robyn to go to a USC-friendly bar out here to watch a game or two.

So if you hear anything about an impending divorce... well... you'll know why...
