The Votes are In!

Thank you for helping me choose a sweater pattern! The winner is Tubey. I've looked at it on ravelry and it seems to be a quick knit that looks good on everyone. Originally I was going to make it in Ravenclaw colors but I found some great red-pink in my stash that will be perfect. Of course, I need to finish the gifts first - just a little more.

Jenny and I had a conversation recently about sock yarn - what a shame it is to make beautiful socks that no one will see. From now on my gorgeous yarns will be items for my upper body. I just finished a nice pink lacy scarf out of Artyarns Ultramerino. I love it. Now I'm making a lace scarf out of wool-silk that I handpainted. It's so soft and squishy and wonderful. Yes, I'm on a lace scarf kick right now. Got any patterns to share? I'm looking for easy ones that I can memorize quickly and relax to without messing up if I watch TV or talk to someone.

Not much else is going on. Although I need to ask a favor. Next month is my birthday, and it's a big one - the kind they make black plates for. I would love some encouragement and comforting words. I've never felt my age until recently - this pain problem makes me feel so old and decrepid. If you can boost my spirits I will love you forever.

I Need A Favor, Please!

For those of you on ravelry, please go to my queue and help me decide which sweater to start! I like them all so much that I can't make any sort of decision.
What have I been up to lately? Well, there's a bazaar coming up and I'm trying to get some things made up for it, but that's about all. Nothing big, nothing new, just me and my television.

Electronically Challenged

So I was going to do a video blog post today in honor of craftborg. However, my video camera is full from the children and the battery is dead. I took the memory card out to download everything and it's not working. Bleh. So I plugged it onto the charger and decided to take a picture of my latest finished piece. Well, for some reason it won't download either. Grrr. I don't understand. If it's yarny I can figure it out. If there's any wiring at all it falls apart under my fingers. Where's my Jenny when I need her?
