Up to My Armpits...

Literally
Would I kid you?

Well, yeah...

But I'm not ( at least not this time!)

Sedona is past the "great divide" and well on her way to the finish line. And just in the "St. Nick" of time, as some folks over on Ravelry are waiting on her. Pattern should go up sometime next week.

Thanks to all my readers for some very interesting comments yesterday on adoption and adaption. Your perceptive remarks challenged me to examine my own beliefs and preconceptions. And that is the power of the Internet at its finest!

Sunflower Designs seems to have segued into fast forward this week. In addition to Moroccan Days/ Arabian Nights, I have a mystery project (Uh oh! You know what that means...) and commitments for three more shawl designs, one for Michelle at the Sweet Sheep, one for Oceanwind Knits, and one for Skylark Yarns in Utah. And I'm still fondling the Woodmoss Lace from Kim and envisioning my Faerie Ring shawl.

Want another sneak peek? Of course you do...









In other news, this came from Sherri at the Loopy Ewe the other day:




Dream in Color Smooshy


But not for socks.




No.

Too much yumminess...

Unless you're an octopus...

with eight feet...





This is going to be my Open Skies kimono jacket





And these are heading for a Cancun Holiday under the hot Tropical Sun.




And now, I'll leave you with some Eye Candy...





I call it "Still Life with Two feet and Two Laptops."

And they both keep me warm...

Beautiful colors in the yarn. Especially the brown and the red. I'm sure you will love working with them.

I love the colors in Sedona! And that "octopus yarn" is gorgeous, too (well, I guess they all are, but it really stands out). Happy knitting coming your way, methinks.

I love the colors in Sedona, too!
What a cute still life photograph - my teacup poodle sits on my legs like that, I have never seen a cat do that, too.
