I'm thinking Kate Gilbert slipped a little mickey into her Sunrise Circle pattern because I cannot put it down. No blogging, no designing, and no further on my sweet little scarf out of Amber's yarn. This thing is crack for knitters - no wonder over 300 of you have done it.
So easy, and yet...

So cool. Look how the little circles appear. Wicked cool.

Maybe I'm not putting it down because it's school vacation and my kids are hellbent on driving me crazy. They don't want to play apart, yet they can't be together for ten minutes without someone making someone else miserable. (yeah, that someone's me..)

I think I made it worse by chucking them down at my Mom's for 4 days of togetherness first, then coming back here for 3 days of school - before another whopping 9 days of Sisterfest '08.

It's got me browsing through the camp catalogs early. We're just back from a morning out and I'm trying something new. They're now in separate timeouts - one downstairs, one upstairs. We'll see if distance makes the heart grow fonder or not. So far, the little one's about to fall asleep and the big one's got Hannah Montana on the radio.

Nothing new to report on the cocktail front. By 4pm, I've got a glass, that's for sure. but it's been red wine - and a little white. Although -- since I ate everything in sight down in New Orleans and am trying to starve myself since it's too icy to go running up here --- I've also been having a little Baileys and Milk after dinner. I kid myself it's less fattening than actual dessert. Isn't it? It's so small and chocolatey.

anyways, I'm off to take advantage of the 30 mins left of Silence.
The Sunrise sleeve #2 is in my sight, and I can't ignore its siren song much longer.

That looks amazing! We have break in 3 weeks and I'm trying to figure out what to do so we don't all kill each other. Siblingfest wears on me too.

You are tempting me to cast another project on...

Congrats on the $100 mark. I keep forgetting to do the dowload when I'm at Melissa's, but it will be happening. I want my own version of that wrap.

Oooohhhh love the color!! What yarn are you using? Is it crack?....oops.....I mean Malabrigo. Which is basically the same thing as crack I would think! LOL!

I've already mailed my check off for summer camp on Day 2 of school vacation! I've been managing to avoid alcohol through exercise (who knew?). Rowing rowing rowing me. Takes the stress out.

The jacket looks amazing!

Ohh, I really love the yarn you chose. The slight color variations make the circles really pop. Great color, too!

Sudden urge to knit one. Yes, it's addictive!

I love the way the pattern works with the subtle variegation in your yarn. It really shows off the circle construction.
