The view from my kitchen window

See that? That's a 34 ford Pickup truck....that is what I was looking for before I purchased the way swanky 36...god I'm jealous. Actually that is in my driveway for the moment. Our friends from Switzerland bought it on their recent trip here and actaully as I was typing this they came by to pick it up and drive it to Long Beach to ship it home....as much as I hate to see this car leave the country I am happy it is going to a good home where it will be appreciated.

Now ACTUAL KNITTING CONTENT!

I finished washed and blocked Nick's birthday scarf....I used about 2 and a half skeins of Beracco Ultra Alpaca in rust and brown on size 5 addi turbos. It took perhaps 7 evenings of knitting plus about 2 hours of weaving in the BAZILLION ends that a striped scarf has plus I wanted to do a good job since Nick is pretty much our dearest friend in Los Angeles. I hope he likes it. I used Soak in the fragrance A Scent to celebrate which smells like roses (I know, how macho)....since I'm not gonna see Nick till Sunday for Burlesque at the Bordello I think I'll try and maybe make a matching cap from the leftover yarn.

Also I remember talking about the truck cookies but I just found actual photos of the truck cookies.

I like the scarf colors. I think I finally need to knit myself a scarf. I'm too cold without one. I like the truck too. We had been looking at one similar, but they were all junkers for too much. Maybe my man will be loading that truck up tonight. He says he always loads rad cars up for Japan.
