Is this me or what?

Ok, so I haven't got much to say this week. I'm working on an eggplant cardigan which is almost finished. Everyone went to Black Sheep except me and Liza DV. and we're both Jealous! Didn't even get my knitting fix on Saturday. But, did go Leather Couch looking. Feeling a bit like Dude Ranch wanna be. Thats the only kind that appealed to me. We didn't buy anything yet. Bill took me to dinner..was it my birthday?? No, thats in November. Is being Kidless bringing a fun change to my hum drum life! I Think so!!
you are lavenderblush

Your dominant hues are red and magenta. You love doing your own thing and going on your own adventures, but there are close friends you know you just can't leave behind. You can influence others on days when you're patient, but most times you just want to go out, have fun, and do your own thing.

Your saturation level is very low - you have better things to do than jump headfirst into every little project. You make sure your actions are going to really accomplish something before you start because you hate wasting energy making everyone else think you're working.

Your outlook on life is very bright. You are sunny and optimistic about life and others find it very encouraging, but remember to tone it down if you sense irritation.

Following the Flow

I'm a firm believer in following the flow. Its like a path. Sometimes, its not even your path but someone else's that you influence. But, for this story..its for me!!

I decided I wanted to go to lunch. Ya know, get out of the house..for any reason. Ok, I've decided to go out to lunch but..mmmm, where?

I just got in the car and went. First, I went bead shopping. Perfectly good sandwich shop practically next door.."no, thats not it". Then I drove more .. back the way I'd come. I thought well, this is nutz..I recognized the fickle finger of fate..just drive Anne.

I drive past several restaurants that said "maybe" to me but none said "stop". Ok, I told myself, go for a drive down by the beach in Edmonds. See if the Edmonds Art Festival is indeed this week end. So I drove.. my wheels took me straight to Anthonys home port. Where, over 2 months ago, I lost my handspun sweater. I pulled in the parking lot. Oh, there's a space!! wow!! Thats rare! I got out of the car and headed for the entrance to the beach cafe (the cheap section) but people were in the waiting area so I headed back to the car..then thought oh, what the heck, go in. So, I did. I got a table outside immediately. The other people were a large group waiting for an inside table.. lucky me!! And, just on the off chance this is where the flow was leading me, I asked if they had a turquoise sweater in the Lost and Found.

I should mention that Anthony's beach cafe makes the best Blackened Rockfish tacos with pineapple kiwi salsa. All the way there I had tasted something bright.. sweet but sour. That's why I kept passing restaurants. Meanwhile, I'm planning how to go to the Marina office and see if they have my sweater. The waitress hasn't come back so they obviously don't have it. Sigh. Couldn't be that easy. The sweater is long gone. Let it go!

When I hear. "Is this It?" My head whipped around... OMG.. IT IS!!! Its my favorite.. handspun, handknit, self of a kind sweater!! OMG.!! I think I'm gonna cry.

Book Holiday

This week I am reading the first of Robin Hobbs 3 farseer novels. I've already read the rest of the series. This is what my mom used to call a "Book Holiday". When you kinda disappear into a book for a week. Its very relaxing.
I am still knitting on the Fronds sweater and am better then half way up the front. The neck shaping is not to far in my future..hee hee..YEAH!!
I also did a bad thing. I went by Village Tea and Yarn and bought 10 balls of pale green Plymouth Encore. When I got home I went searching for the #3 keyplate for my bond knitting frame (ultimate sweater machine). I have had this machine for 25 years. So I could start the pale green sweater...haha!! Anyway, while I was cleaning and digging around I stumbled on the Eggplant sweater (patons Decor) I started last year. AND, I found the #3 keyplate so I finished the back of the Eggplant sweater. It has a pretty berry pattern across the bottom from the book Knitting on the Edge. NOW, I have to make another bottom edge to finish the front. Work work work. What about the green one you ask..I didn't start the green one but I DID draw a design. Terri Shea would be proud of me. I found my notebook that I keep my designs in. I've never published a design but prefer doing my own over patterns in magazines. Wonder why that is? Its not that I don't swatch. I just never make things out of what they call for in the patterns so they never work out like they are supposed to. So, I wind up redesigning them Sometimes its just easier to do it my own way in the first place..Lol. So, I mostly draw a little picture of what I'm aiming for and then put a few notes in. Nothing that anyone else could follow..I don't think. But, I know what it means.
