The yarn for my Elizabeth Bennet Cabled Cardigan from the book Fitted Knits by Stefanie Japel came from WEBS the other day... It is the colorway called "Sweet Pea". The color is a little less Pepto Bismol pink than this in real life. Of course, the moment I got it, I immediately wished that I had gone with the lavender color from the photo from the book. Oh, well...I need a pink sweater, and I am sure once it is knit up, I will love it. I can always make another some day in the lavender, right?

For me, this is the biggest dilemma with my knitting. Choosing a color and sticking with it. I tend to love a color, have to have it, and then when I get it. Heh. I fall out of love. Apparently, I am fickle.

I have put aside the Rusted Root. I got WAY too depressed after the misaligned lace panel business and the frogging. Oh. The frogging. It was hard. Anyway, once again, the luster is off of the project and so, it languishes in my knitting basket. Well, the knitting basket in the livingroom. That particular basket is a bit like a WIP Purgatory. When I am really into knitting something, I goes in the bedside knitting basket. I love to knit while propped up in bed, watching my super-kick-ass HDTV. (I've become a CSI re-run addict).

Clapotis...the never-ending Clapotis. I am determined to have this done for our trip to Vegas next week. I am on the fourth straight repeat. (Of twelve and a half. Then twelve decrease repeats).

I may, in fact, be delusional.

Oh, well, I can always sleep in Vegas, right? And I do have the very long (8 hour) car ride from here to Cleveland on Friday to finish. I could take it on the plane. I could finish it whilst actually in Vegas and that would still count, right? Clearly, it would.

I have to finish it because I bought the coolest shawl pin for it on Etsy.

It came from a seller whose username is Rubyvegas. I couldn't make this up.

7 days from now?

Oooh la la!

Wow, all that and a full time job? I'm impressed! It all looks so wonderful and I'm quite the pink queen myself! It'll be great!

Hey, Webs has Cloud9 on sale right now, so you could go get that pretty lavender too. Just sayin'. (I did the same thing - bought enough yarn for a navy eyelet cardigan, only to find I could have saved another $10 if I'd waited two weeks. Drat.) Anyway. Clapotis is lovely, and I'm not entirely sure why you think you'll need a wrap in Vegas. It's APRIL in the desert, which means it's HOT already. Lows in the 60s all week. Pack some shorts!
