It's a busy week (living life can keep one running), but I have been able to fit in some knitting here and there. As always, I'm looking forward to the weekend and more time to spend with a sweater, either Gray Mist or Wisteria, or both preferably.
Wisteria reminds me, during these days of (a slight) inversion (it's ugly here, folks) that spring will come and bring beautiful flowers once again. Wisteria also reminds me of the process and the joy that can be found in working stitch by stitch in the present. She reminds me that while I dream of flowers, what is in my hands now is of utmost importance. A few stitches here, a few more there and she grows.
The SnB gang (we aren't just grrls) had a "One Skein Exchange" for our 5th Anniversary party.
All the "gifts" were in brown paper bags and no one knew what they had until the bags were opened. Cheryl got a fun hat from Eliza, Chris got Laurie's (coveted) beaded bag, Eliza received Heather's very creative cowl, and Heather got Warren's very warm (and cool) ear warmer. Laurie received Chris' linen bread cloth (no picture), Warren's neck is now warmed by Cheryl's buttoned cowl and Susan (happily) got the Applewood Cowl from me. I was the lucky recipient of Susan's gift and I'll share it with you after I get a picture of it with Acer.
The intent was not to torture you by dragging out the Acer debut (although that's not a bad idea). Our first opportunity for a photo shoot is this weekend, but I can tell you this already, she one of my favorite sweaters ever.
