This means Hubba Bubba and Random Jennifer haven't completely converted me to a Southern accent!

You may think you speak "Standard English straight out of the dictionary" but when you step away from the Great Lakes you get asked annoying questions like "Are you from Wisconsin?" or "Are you from Chicago?" Chances are you call carbonated drinks "pop."

The Blahs

In a fit of knitting frenzy, I finished the projects I last posted about. Now I'm just going through the motions with a baby sweater I'm knitting for an expectant work friend and a ballband dishcloth that has been my carrying around project. I ordered the Fall/Winter Rowan solely for this sexy knee high pattern, thinking I'd have enough yarn in my stash to do them up. I don't. So that will require another yarn purchase. I'm also awaiting delivery on yarn for sweater for Hubba Bubba. That might be my at home project for the duration of the winter months! But what should I start for a carrying around project? This is very important. I knit on the way to and from work, and whatever times in between..... so I need a good something something to keep with me. Any suggestions? Scarves need not apply!

project updates

This sweater vest illustrates why I don't have any bright speckly clothes in my wardrobe. Can we say "thick through the middle?" Oh well. Its a pattern I made up as I went along, so I'm proud of that!

This purse, well... I just love it. I've decided that non-felted knitted purses all need a lining to give them good body. This purse just stretched out all over the place before I put a lining to it. And the button? I know, it is sublime.
