Project update!

Here is my progress on Juliet. I'm 3 rows away from joining the body.

I'm loving this yarn. It is Cascade Venezia and it is a blend of 70% merino and 30% silk. So far so good.

I came home from work today to find this:

My order from Webs!

First I got 2 skeins of Plymouth Royal Bamboo to use for chemo caps. It feels and looks like cotton only it is shiny. The colors are really lovely!

The real surprise was the 9 skeins of Tahki Savoy which I ordered for the Tree Jacket! First off, they sent me 10 skeins. Secondly, this is the softest yarn I have ever felt! I had never seen this yarn in person, but the description sounded like something I would love, so I took a chance. According to the label, it will knit to the gauge specified in the pattern. The fiber content is 52% silk, 48% merino and it is a golden olive green. I couldn't be more pleased!

I little eye candy, courtesy of Trader Joe's. Two dozen roses! I take a deep cleansing breath every time I look at them!

That's it for now! Nothing exciting to write about.

Bushism of the day:
"It's negative to think about blowing each other up. That's not a positive thought. That's a Cold War thought. That's a thought when people were enemies with each other." —George W. Bush, as quoted in the Wall Street Journal, June 25, 2001

  1. The Tahki Savoy looks great! I bet it will have a nice drape to it. Juliet is going to be pretty in that color too. As always, cute kitty pics!
