My current work in progress:

Comfort Fade Cardi by Andrea Mowry, knit from Miss Babs  Kaweah in the Parchment, Old Gold, Petrified Forest, and Espresso colorways, using 3.75mm and 4mm needles.


And I love Windows XP.

Last Friday, I successfully upgraded my desktop computer at home from Windows ME (forever after known as the Work of the Devil) to Windows XP Home Edition. No fuss no muss.

Just as the installation process was finishing up, Izzy dramatically hacked up a hairball on the floor next to the computer. I like to think it was a show of her contempt for Windows ME.

I’ve gotten quite a bit done on the second sleeve:

Cool, huh? I ought to have this done by the end of the week. Much to my annoyance, I ran short of two colors — Deep Aqua and Pine Forest. But thanks to my buddy Geane, it wasn’t a problem. She dug into her stash and generously sent me a skein of each color. Mmmmmmwha!


Guess what??!! The Spring issue of Knitty is live! Woo-hoo! Check it out — I’ve got an article and a pattern in this issue. Let me know what you think!

I’m off from work today, and I’ll be away from the ‘puter for most of the day. Happy Monday to all!
