Sorry to have missed KSs yesterday - was out shopping with a friend and didn't feel like calling it a day early enough to go. Would have liked to join you and I bet it was fun to be at Lisa's - Scout must have loved the extra attention too!

Gave the chevron scarf to my shopping buddy, who was quite appreciative. The colors were perfect for her - and it turns out to match not only her lime green coat, but also her purple fleece for everyday outings as well! Love it when a gift works out....

Am beginning Debbie Bliss's Grace with Aurora 8 - am only at the beginning of a sleeve, but can already tell I might have a new favorite yarn. The swatch was beautiful. This stuff is amazing - soft and spongy, a little sheeny and you can tell it won't be pilly ever ever ever. Looks great in ribs. It seems so thin on the skein, I almost doubted the size 8 needles, but it looks great. Might get addictive.

Also working on Maya's XO sweater - have finished sleeves and moved on to the body. Getting a little tedious, but still love Miss Bea and her easy to follow directions. And Maya still loves seeing if I am doing a "kiss" or a "hug" in the pattern, which I'm a sucker for.

Will spare you boring photos of both, since they are only a few inches deep and don't look too groovy yet. YET. Have plans of working on both over Thanksgiving..

Mmmm, Aurora 8 is good stuff. I love working with it, and it does just looks so nice!

We missed you yesterday, it was a nice intimate group. Hopefully this Sunday?
