Busy, Busy, Busy

I was unable to get a good picture since I was in a hurry but the Cascade Fixation Tank is finished. As a present to myself on Mother's Day, I wore it to church, under my suit coat.

I'll try to post a better photo another day when I have someone to take a good photo or when there is more natural light available.


I ripped the Hurricane Sock beginnings and restarted...about ten or more times. I finally have something workable.

Ooh! Ooh! I love Cascade Fixation (have you tried the Elann Esprit, same thing but less expensive? Not as good colors though). Anyway, off to find this pattern. Must knit now!

Perfect Tank for suits... I love varigated yarn. Thanks for the boost of confidence... I have so many ideas in my head and figured I'd try my hand at sketching... now I need to figure out what yarns and colors would make the sketches reality.
