Just a few random thoughts-

-My Mr. Joe Sangria came in. Elann offered it last week-it's a multi-color with LONG color runs. I am useless, I am a yarn tramp. I have a perfectly nice top I am 1.33 balls away from finishing, but this yarn is DISTRACTING. I also got my Elann competition yarn in-and my perfect project is doable-I know EXACTLY what it should look like, how to do it, and what to do when. But the Sangria is SOOOO mezmerizing.....

-I am so gaga over the Joe, I looked in the big Kaffe Fasset pattern book. I love looking at that, but still haven't made anything with his patterns. It's tough to pick. While I was pouring over the book, it dawned on me that the Persian Poppies looked like boobs. A LOT like boobs. Hmmm. Wipe your coffee off your screen.

-You may be wondering why I have an Elann photo in my sidebar. It's not paid advertising. My shawl was a runner-up in their January shawl contest. I thought it looked great on Margaux, who modeled all the shawls. I am really pro Elann because I've met all my good knitting buds thru Elann.

-I really want Michael to win on PR.

-I'm going back to Monday Night Football. Out.

You've got a pic of Margaux modelling YOUR shawl...how cool is that?! I agree with Trish.

Mr Joe is such a flirt.

I've been eyeing that shawl. It is lovely. What is it made out of? BTW, I've been sucked into the Mr. Joe vortex thank you very much. I'm hoping that 3 balls will make a small shawlette for Christmas.

It's made out of Elann DenMnit, affectionately known as Dammit. That's the thing, Jean, I was a runner up. I failed pattern writing. Ah well.

So yes, Kelly, if you bought some Joe, I want to hear what you think!

So, the Cornucopia has you by the throat demanding to be knitted, huh? I'm getting very close to finished with my corny feather and fan shawl. It's going to be a Christmas present. Everyone who sees it wants it. Hmmm, maybe I should auction it off. ;-}

You know your shawl looks beautiful. And cool scenery too.

I think your shawl was the perfect addition to the side bar. 'Bout time.

SooZ said...

Wow, you were a runner up in the shawl contest??? It is gorgeous, and to see it on Marguax the model, WOW. It really is a beauty. So.. does Elann have the pattern?

No, I do. I need to rewrite it, because I was not at all terse or to the point.

On the other hand, I just found the receipt for the shawl yarn-I ordered it 2 weeks before the contest closed. That would have a little to do with it.
