Headway is being made!

Ta Da!

Honestly, this pattern is so adorable it should come with a warning. Wait until you see it on the recipient - we had a fitting the other day, and while she was a blur of motion, it was a charming blur.

Darling is nearly complete, still needs: Belts sewn on, embroidery added, loops and buttons, ends woven in and blocked. Not too shabby for a knitter of my speed.

The whirlwind that is my Mother's talent, resulted in this sweet vest. (intended for the same recipient - which means we will have to start something for her brother right away!)

This evening I began my Ravenclaw House Scarf while watching GoF. See the nearby Kleenex? My eyes were 'glistening with the ghosts of the past' - so recently past. Poor Cedric.

Notice how all of these items fall into the current PS2 theme?

It has been a busy weekend. My brother is visiting - so lots of catching up, visitors, visits and phone calls. My Mom and I drove in to the city to pick up some yarn for a project of hers. While there I bought some yummy yarn for my SP9 - that's right folks, I am still shopping: Late much? I also found a fantastic sewing project that will premiere here shortly.

I saw The Number 23 - people save your money! Fortunately we used free passes and our popcorn was fresh, so not a total waste. Really, really bad movie.

I finished a great book, Animal Dreams - now to get through the stack on my nightstand...

Oh, and I found a cool photo game - check it out here.

You both did a great job on those items. YARN? Did I hear you say yarn? {perk}

I am planning to make Darling for Amelia and it sure is aptly named.

BTW, I finished Poppy!! Check it out.

Gosh, how very, very beautiful! Both the sweater and the vest are absolutely awesome - and mind you, I'm so curious to see it on the recipient too! You did a really great job!

okay, I don't know why my name is showing up as Tone. It's Toni. And blogger won't let me into my profile to change it. It's posting right on other blogs! Urggh. That's why I use wordpress :-)

Great knits and a cute puppa!

I figured that The Number 23 would suck. Hollywood has run out of interesting things to say and stories to tell. I prefer movies from other countries.
