I mailed DD her cropped cardi over the weekend. She wrote me today thanking me for the pants in her box. I think this means she plans to wear the cardigan somewhere in the realm of whenever. (Damn, that was expensive merino, too.)
As luck would have it, I have a new project crush. I got the Knitpicks catalog in, and saw the page advertising "Knitted Tams". I never really considered them before, but I think I could knit-snack on these like other people knit socks. They're small, useful, brilliantly patterned and colored....I'm starting to drool again...and I have the yarn on hand. Suzann offered up her book, so I think I'm set to start my Tamtrum!
