As of Monday night, Green Gable is finished. No pictures yet as it is still drying. At this point I confess that I'm pretty sure I made it too big...I used old measurements when I determined sizing neglecting the fact that I've been working at losing the weight I put on when M and I quit smoking last summer (almost 10 months smober now!). I'm afraid Green Gable will join the Peace Fleece Cardigan and Big Sack Sweater in the frog pond. Oh well, luckily it was a quick knit and when I reknit it in a smaller size it will go even faster!
Last night I didn't knit at all. Two of our closest friends and their baby came to visit all the way from Oregon. We had a great visit and we'll hopefully get to see them again this coming weekend. They are the type of people that even when we don't see each other for over a year there is absolutely no awkwardness. I miss them so much however there is a really big chance we'll end up moving to Oregon ourselves Fall 2007. Hopefully.
So, after they left last night we put in Wallace and Gromit Curse of the Wererabbit and I began to string beads for MaryElla. Last summer I purchased 4 kits from EarthFaire. One adorable movie later and I have the majority of beads strung for the silver and amethyst beaded cuff. I think I'll do some more stringing of the other kits at knitting GROUP tonight.
*Knitting GROUP is now every 2nd and 4th Wednesday. It's still same time, same place (6:30-8:00pm at the Borders in Wilmette at the corner of Lake and Skokie).*
