A week before my blogiversarry and guess what I finally have?! Many thanks to Jae, who not only has photo-editing software, but knows how to use it. ;) She played with several of my sailing photos and yarn photos to come up with the button and header you see. What you can't know from just looking at the button: The photo was taken while dh and I were sailing on Lake Charlevoix in northern Michigan a summer ago, and the yarn is the Lake Charlevoix colorway of Gems Opal that Jae gifted me with a month or so back. So, if you put buttons on your blog on your sidebar please go ahead and take this one (save to your own server yada...).
Progress on Liz
I've run through my first of 4 sk of yarn, and I'm afraid I'm going to have to order another from those wonderful folks at Rovings. I'm thinking the sleeves are each going to take as much as the back and the front, given that the schematic looks like there is about the same amount of area. and there is a yoke still to knit. Now, if I don't order more yarn, I will def run out. If I do order more, I'll end up not needing it. I'd better order it though. So, this is what a week of fairly knitting with intent yields me. I only knit once on another project last week, and that, believe it or not, was the Debbie Bliss ruffle cardi that I brought out of hibernation. Will wonders never cease? Notice if you will, the hibernation category of projects in process (on the sidebar) is completely gone.
