The Great Quilt Scandal
Did anyone see this article about the women who claim to be cheated out of thousands of dollars from the success of the Gee's Bend quilts?

Now that I'm done reading HPATDH, I can get back to my regular life, which means that shortly, there will be knitting.
And knitting photos!
And maybe I'll even get the comments fixed...

With Baited Breath...
So last week, I went home to visit my parents. I also got to see my pregnant sister, which was fantastic.
Mom has started knitting for the baby, too, but I was on a quest for the yarn to make the perfect baby blanket. It took a little convincing, but I talked my parents into the two hour drive to Lansing to visit ThreadBear. We spent about three hours at this wonderful yarn mecca, and I found inspiration in yarn. Of course, it had to be fingering weight yarn, which means that this blankie, which will be even a bigger intarsia nightmare than the last one, will take about forever. Lucky the baby's not due until December.
Now, we're just waiting for the yarn to show up in the mail... and then you'll get a photo!
In actual knitting progress news, I'm almost done with the back of the bunting I'm working on. I'll shoot a photo when I get the box of the new yarn for you, ok?

Comments are Broken. (Just like my old blender)
Bear with us while we get this fixed.
My blender just died.
I was trying to make a smoothie for breakfast, but something went terribly wrong. I am most saddened. Although it's good to know that there's a Bed, Bath & Beyond near my house which will be open in 45 minutes, so I can get a new one.
On another topic, how great is iTunes? I found a version of Shirley Bassey singing "Get This Party Started." It rocks in a bizarre way.
I have been knitting; I got about another inch of the orange rectangle done last night, and plan to spend some more time on it today. It's still not really photo-worthy. I mean, who wants to see a rectangle of orange garter stitch made on super tiny needles?
