The next sweater finally stepped to fore and demanded attention. I'd been dragging my feet, hesitant for no real reason and she was right to assert herself as it was high time to take on Sweater #6. Summer Tweed is a little hard on the hands, but it makes a comfortable, easy to wear sweater. Chamomile has been one of my most favored, most oft worn sweaters and I hope Harmony will turn out to be as versatile.
Several friends will surely give me she-ite for the color, the lovely springy Eastery egg, sugar pink, but I love it, and I'll wear it and they'll be envious of my beauty. **cough** The truth is this color isn't everyone's cup a tea, but I love it and I'll love wearing it. Hopefully, I'll love knitting the pattern, too. I've only put in a few minutes of knitting time, but I can tell the lace edge (this is NOT a peplum) is going to be very pretty. (Claudia, are you cringing out loud?)
Harmony will take me half way through the yearly goal of twelve fabulous sweaters. (Maybe I should cross off that fabulous because of the Liesl disaster, but if things stay on track I could knit one or two over the goal and still have twelve fabulous sweaters.) While I drag my feet a bit between sweater projects, sweater mojo has always been willingly at hand.
Two blog friends need all of Blogland to step up and spread the word. Claudia isn't quite ready to ask for donations for her annual MS ride, but she is putting out the call for prizes.
Teyani's choral group has been invited to sing at Carnagie Hall! It's such a fabulous honor and they need to raise funds to make this dream come true. You can help and Teyani has come fabulous prises as incentives. Do what you can for both endeavors. Blogland is so generous and so good at making dreams come true for our friends.
There may not be much knitting going on this weekend. As you may have heard, Ms. Norma arrives today and we have a whirlwind weekend of fun planned. When Norma comes to town, there isn't much sitting around knitting time. There is plenty of time eating, drinking and partying time, however. I'm not sure when I'll be back as we have plans until Tuesday morning. See you on the flip!!
