It's been a whole month since I've been able to log into blogger from my computer, ugh. I've been lurking, but crashing all month, so sorry for the silence. But my husband has his laptop from work home tonight and I'm giving it a shot.

Seems the problem isn't blogger, but my laptop. Not so surprising. Good news is my sister is giving us hers and I should be set in a week or so - and it's a Mac! I love Macs...

In the meantime, the knitting goes on. Stay tuned for good pics of my Nov projects and bad pics of me in them. The cocktails have also continued, I'll have to include some of them as well.

I've managed a scarf for me, a hat for my Grandpa, socks for Craig, and a new stripey sweater for Maya out of bits and scraps. All it needs is some edging and a zipper, but she's claimed it's ITCHY so I put it down. Really, why go through the effort if a 7 year old claims itch??

I have some gorgeous new Sunshine Yarns sock yarn and a really cool new skein of Jitterbug sock yarn I picked up over Thanksgving in deep blues. Maybe some Potamus?

Through the Knitty Board, I have a sweater's worth fabulous purple Rowan Harris Tweed and some lovely peachy Malabrigo too. Am thinking Moonlight Madness in the Malabrigo and am looking for suggestions for the Harris Tweed.

I love Emily's Kepler, but don't see that being flattering on me - maybe a cardigan? Central Park Hoodie? Hmmm. Anyone have a book with Harris Tweed patterns? I think Rowan changed the name of the Tweed, but it's all the same stuff.

Am planning on KS this Sunday (I know my credibility is low, sorry...) and hope to see you guys then!
