My new toy...

iPhone-y goodness! w00t!, originally uploaded by BernieC.

I lucked out and was able to get an 8gb iPhone, only having to wait in line for about a half hour! It's so GORGEOUS! And I can blog, and play on Ravelry with it! w00t!

Thanks, Bernie, for taking this picture. :)

Yes, I AM still alive!

I've just had a heck of a time since I last posted. Things that happened to me:

  • Rear ended on the way to work (Winston's ok!)
  • Broke up with my boyfriend
  • Parents divorce finalized (and received a call from my mom that sounded like the one last year--it was hard, as I couldn't just hop in the car and drive to Florida, like I could drive to her house here in Seattle).
  • Went to my yearly physical where I found I get to have a biopsy of a mole later this week. (Seriously, it was just a matter of time until this happened to me. Fair skin + many severe burns as a child = skin issues later in life. I just thought it would be later than 28)
  • Unable to go to the Black Sheep Gathering (because my fare for my trip to FL next month was too high!)
So I haven't felt much like posting. I felt pretty gloomy lately, and didn't want to sound all doom and gloom. Thank goodness for Ravelry. I'm a Super-Editor there, and have been absorbed editing, merging and working on the database. It just feels so good to be able to contribute to such a great site! :)

A few good things have happened!

I finished Glee!

I'll try and get a few other (better) pics of me wearing it, so you can see the entire sweater. I did end up having enough yarn. :)

I started another Zephyr Pattern, Rusted Root!

I've split for the armholes, and am about 5 inches down, another inch or so to go, and I'll be starting waist shaping.

I've also finished a few things off of the Matchless. This is Crown Mountain Farms Superwash Merino.

Colorway: Twist and Shout.

2-ply, with quarter for scale.

I still have 4 oz left to spin. Can't wait to have yarn for socks!
