Stuff

It's my day off, and I've been running errands. I went to the post office and shipped out a couple of packages. The red BSJ went to my cousin for the new baby (actually, it went to my aunt, who will deliver it; the cousin and her family are moving soon). And I also shipped out this:

DSC01401

The pattern is called "Clapotis" (but that's French, so you're on your own for the pronunciation). It's a scarf/stole knitted in a self-striping yarn. This one is about 13" x 68" and very warm and soft. I've sent it off to a friend who's too far away for the hug I'd like to give her when she needs one: this'll be a long-distance hug.

I'm about to start a baby sweater, and I'm mulling over changes to the classic BSJ pattern. Why change a classic? 'Cause I wanna...if I can. But it might not be possible to make the change I'm contemplating...which might be why "the classic" is a classic. We'll see. Anyway, soft green cotton yarn (and not baby/mint green) with pink flower buttons...

I'm going to go knit now...

The scarf looks awesome!! Beautiful stripes and it does look like it could deliver a long distance hug.

I want a hug! I want a hug! I live far away from you! Me me! Pick me!

That is so gorgeous!
