Show us Big and Small

Ok so now for a happy fun time post.
So believe it or not I've been knitting like a woman posessed but haven't finished anything. Here are some things I started within the last 2 months that I am super close to finishing.

First BIG
Ya know what that is right. Yes but before I hear "Oh GOD not ANOTHER one of THOSE!" I just want to share with you what makes this special....that there is Elsebeth Lavod Silky Cashmere. I got over a 1300 yards of the stuff on sale at Webs. It usually is $11.95 a ball but they reduced it to $5.99. The reason they still have so much is that this yarn, though beautiful and soft have really lame yardage. I mean 44 yards a ball....Imagine the number of freaking ends I'm gonna have to weave in with this bad boy? Lets just say I'm planning on using AT LEAST 1000 yards on this thing. Do the math. Like 44 ends...this may break me. I'm saving a bottle of good tequila for the task, and if you live in the L.A Area and see a drunk naked woman on the news waving a burning Clapotis know who it is.

Now lets do small!
How bout some wee baby socks. I started these on the plane to Oregon for our vacation, look how much I got done. (I realize the toe is wonky on the finished one, I'm going to remedy that.
And Speaking of Oregon
We went to Voodoo Doughnut In downtown Portland. Look apon my Mapley Baconie goodness and feel your waistline expand. The DSB and I both got one. I couldn't finish it. Though It was pretty darn good it's up there with skydiving or eating blowfish, something you'll only do once.
We ate our doughnuts (And my mother was a trooper for putting up with the teeny space and questionable sanitation of the place) then did what all red blooded Americans do On a Sunday Morning.....We went Wine Tasting.
There's something about Vineyards with those green straight rows that makes me want to move to Oregon and raise Musk Ox and eat all organic meals!

I still haven't finished my Clap. I'm dreading it for some reason.

Interesting donut. Was it good?

Believe it or not it was pretty good. If anything there was WAY too much glaze on it but it was good. The Old Fashioned style doughnuts were good as well. I think if I had a cup of coffee it would be perfect.

ummmmm, it won't let me comment on your newest post.


I totally agree with the 'it's cute when I do it'. That's my motto as well. It's a good one.

How did you get that package? I love the lube. It's the gift that keeps on giving.

It was a Lazy Stupid and Godless swap. I got lucky and had a psychic for a swap partner cause I totally LUV all the stuff she sent.
