Sam's Spiderman Afghan

I took the picture Christmas Eve, but gave the camera to my daughter so she could use it. I finally got my hands on it again this week.
Sam likes it, but his mom likes it even more. She says it's great to curl up under on these frigid Michigan winter days.
Note to self: The next time you think about doing one of these, remind yourself that you really don't enjoy doing afghans that much.

Update on the Sweet Mary Jane Cardi

I only have 4 repeats (a total of 16 rounds) left to do on the 2nd sleeve!!! Then of course, there's the yoke and collar, but the largest chunk of knitting is done on it! I'm almost embarrassed to tell you how long ago I started knitting it! (would you believe June of '06?) I'll be getting back to my knitting in just a moment, but first I want to show you this: Ice Queen

I have a ball of Rowan Kidsilk Haze in Fondant and I think the Ice Queen would look fabulous in that color!! Actually, I think it would look great in any color, but that's what I have. The minute I get the Sweet Mary Jane cardi blocking I will be casting on for this. I love those tiny little beads! They almost looks like they are floating on the lace.

I also have Wicked on my list of projects to cast on. Guess I better get those needles busy, no?

Who's Chicken?

Yes, I admit...I am a chicken!! We are having a winter storm ~ snow and sleet ~ and the water from yesterday's rain that hasn't dried up has frozen. I hate to drive on icy roads! Snow, I don't mind, but icy roads? No way, not me. So I called in and told the boss that I would not be coming in this evening. I was scheduled 5:30 - 10 tonight.

And you know what that means?? I get to stay home and knit! I have been knitting away on my Sweet Mary Jane cardi and am now about 80% done with it! I have 1/2 of the second sleeve and then the yoke and collar. I am SO pleased!! I finished the shawl that I was knitting with Crystal Palace Kid Merino. The camera is charging, pictures soon.

I just bought this cute Ladybug Measuring Tape I love ladybugs and I just couldn't resist.
