Our eyes met across a crowded room...





First...a thank you to PinkSu for letting me test her Shower Flower pattern. It was a pleasure and dd loves it in her bath...makes lots of suds. I know you've got lots of plans for its future incarnations...I may have an idea or two also...will email them to you. Thank you again for trusting me with your pattern. I hope you will seriously consider submitting it to the 2008 CPAD calendar....

And now...it was love at first sight...so cliche, yet so true. The colors, the sparkle, the plush, plush mohair... I tried to resist, but I could not... so I bought four... six months ago and have been waiting for them to tell me what they wanted to be...alas...the DIY network show Knitty Gritty answered that... we (the mohair and I) are working together to make a drop stitch poncho. I haven't dropped the stitches yet, as I'm only 1/2 way through...nonetheless, I'm so pleased with it thus far...I had to show ya! Ewweeeee! I'm so glad I bought these! I'll post an update when finished. Mind you, I'm not all that experienced with knitting...so be kind...
