the dream swatch, a little one-skein freebie from over at the garter belt, designed by one of my favorite knitting bloggers, wendy. and see--i have this one little skein of noro sakura (part of my knitter's tea swap package sent to me by the wonderful allegra) that was just calling out to me to be knitted into something. and well--you see what happened. the minute that conference call ended, i blew off everything, wound up my yarn, and started knitting. i cant say i'm sorry. this yarn is NOT a joy to work with, but man, it sure is pretty! i love all the colors! this little swatchy, scarfy bit is going to knit up quickly and make me happy every step of the way. :)
oh, and in other knitting news, my friend amy, who came to my house for her fist knitting lesson last week and who i sent home with yarn, a book, and some needles, has already finished her first scarf and even managed to put fringe on it! go amy!
