I am so loving this sweater- I'm wearing it right now, and it is fantastic. A great big thank you to Jenna for a fabulous pattern, and to the NCAA for filling my saturday with non-stop basketball, which enabled me to finally finish off this sweater!

I had an amazing 4 day weekend... I was "sick" on thursday, mostly because I went to a guitar concert on Wednesday night that resulted in me getting to S's home around 11ish, and then, thanks to an electrical fire in the metro, not getting to MY home until almost 11 the next morning. So thursday and friday were spent doing laundry, and knitting, and watching bad daytime tv... really, what more could you want in a mini-vacation? Saturday was devoted to basketball, including watching the poor terps fall to the #$*($#* orangemen... and then Sunday I took my friend C to the shoe-store mecca (DSW) and actually found shoes for the wedding in may, and they were only $30! Plus, I think they would be adorable with a pair of black pants, so I should be able to wear them again (they are silver strappy heels).

In other knitting news, I'm into the yoke of my Sable v-neck- I'm dealing with both the raglan decreases AND the v-neck decreases. At least the number of stitches is dropping quite dramatically this way! Depending on my dilligence this week, I just might finish this next weekend!

Cricket, waiting patiently for her treats, wonders why I bother to go to work at all.

I hope everyone has a great week- and stop by Rachael's to wish her a speedy recovery from pneumonia (but don't let her breathe on you!) :)
