No point to the title, except it is the morning and I want coffee. If Ben is feeling better, I sense a road trip to upstate NY, and if he is not I am sensing me stealing the car and making my own road trip.

I posted some new pics of projects. I finished the Soho Scarf. I love this pattern. I noticed I like simple patterns involving changing directions, going from stockinette to reverse stockinette, or garter stitch from horizontal to vertical. The scarf didn't take a long time, and I think it is great for yarn that has shades of color. Sunday recommended this grey yarn at the store (I don't remember the name) and I am now thinking that would have looked stunning as well. Of course, I bought 7 skeins of Debbie Bliss yarn and this specific yarn I don't like. The debate is what to do with it (it was supposed to be scarves). I will post a picture and we have a vote on what to do with it.

I picked up the Tosca and I am making a mistake rib scarf for myself. This is a simple pattern that is a pattern on both sides which is perfect for a scarf. Deborah, at stix-n-stitches, taught a course on reverse stitches (patterns that are lovely on both sides) and I didn't take it but I will next offering. I will also take the sweater course by Sunday. No more courses as holidays are coming and we have a lot to do, when I saw we, I mean me. I have a lot of knitting to do. I did take the modular knitting class which I loved and I took the moebius which was fun. I have not done anything with these skills. Projects are sitting on my desk gathering dust.

Oh! I think I found a pattern for Grandma Sparkes. Ms. Sparkes, Ben's Grandma, is a "lady of lesiure" so she deserves something lovely. I have been talking about this robin egg blue yarn that Adrienne Vittadini that I found. I did find a great pattern from Exquisite Little Knits, but I need to get the book.

Alright, let me go see how hubby is doing. I force fed him two Thera-Flus last night and made him go to bed. I found out later he snuck the laptop into the room and was surfing the internet.

Hey international friends! Cool site! The customer support seems good and the dating service maybe endless. Maybe I will have a better keyword, searching for match maker since my keyword "instant" did not fit as intended.
Glad I found you! Keep on keepin on!
