You learn to love solids/semis as you knit more. It IS so nice not to have to fight w/yarn.

Well you rock at your "thing"
thanks Mindy...a super fast knit and I knit the whole thing in the dark, so super easy too. I think it is meant to have the gathers in the back but I really like them on the side.

and yes, Carolyn sure does.

She got Pixie a VINE BRANCHES WALDORF for Christmas She said she tried to stalk for months and even though it was expensive she wanted to do something "special". I about keeled over.

as always, your yarn is beautiful. I wish I had your love of sock knitting. I keep thinking it will come.

mei tai would be so cute!

Had a nice day of knitting and American Horror Story. It just came "free" on amazon prime so I am trying it out. A few people at work are watching and told me to try it. So far it is good.
