I haven't posted in a while.
I ordered Knitting the Easy Way and Scarf Style from Barnes and Noble last week. They arrived yesterday :D. I recommend Knitting the Easy Way (a lesser known book....I don't think I really need to recommend Scarf Style) cuz' it's got pretty cool patterns. I want to make Backyard Leaves (Annie Modesitt) and the Blue Collar (Teva Durham) from Scarf Style. I'm not sure what I want to make from KTEW.

I bought Caron Simply Soft for Rogue a few days ago. It's got gauge, so now I just need to modify it to fit a ten-year-old (that's what size I'm making it in).

The Jaywalkers are progressing. I'm almost to the toe with the second sock. Of course I'm doing my fave "custom-fit" toe - that's that one where I try it on every couple rounds and decide how I want it to fit. This process, of course, involves multiple lifelines.

Remember when I posted about finding all the turn of the century magazines? Katie's making hundred year old recipes from it. A week or two ago, she made coconut cake; tonight we're eating gingersnap/molasses cookies.

I wonder when I'll get my Sockapaloooza buddy info.

That'll be all for now.
