This is my "ketchup" post so to speak, just to "catch-up" on a few things I've been meaning to do.
First off, a few people had requested to see the "unmentionable side" of the mitered blanket. Warning - if you don't want to see this, shade your eyes now. You may also want to remove small children from the room! =)
It's not that bad really, I used judicious amounts of this stuff on all the ends because I have a deep-seated fear that they may spring free at any moment. I may put a lining on the back at some point, haven't decided yet.
I also was RAOK'D by Sarah! She sent me such a lovely package and must have known I have a weakness for not only yarn, but bath products. The philosophy smells soooo good, thank you so much!
AND I received the loveliest of packages from my blog buddy Joanna. She is amazingly talented and made the earrings and the pouches herself. I had actually been eyeing them on her blog when she posted about them and receiving one in the mail is like a dream come true, thank you so much!
And in other news, Miss Leah is the winner of the knit.1 magazine contest. I really, truly appreciate all of your wonderful comments, positve thoughts and jokes headed my way. And ya know, when my heating went out yesterday, I re-read them all when I needed a little pick me up. Here's hoping we don't have to replace the whole thing and it's just a small part. Ah, the joys of home ownership! I am woman, hear me roar, I can handle ANYTHING!!! =) hehe.
AND if you've made it this far you deserve a pic of rogue. Just last night I picked up the sts for the hood and seamed the shoulders together. I tried it on this morning and I'm happy to say my gauge is on track and the darn thing actually fits. Which is a relief, really, considering the FIRST time I tried to knit it.
