First of all, a big welcome back to Carolyn!!

I did more on the Guernsey dress last night, and I think it’s coming out great, except for the bobble part. It’s my first attempt at bobbles, and this one just isn’t as round and as perky as I’d like it to be. I don’t know if I’m doing something wrong, or what. But it’s a mediocre bobble.
Here’s some pics of the original (in an infant size, I’m doing a 2-3 year old size) and a couple of my progress. My cables are reversed because I’m left handed. Click on the smaller photos for a larger view. I need to update my projects page, maybe I’ll do that later today after I finish some revisions on a long drawn out freelance project.

Guernsey dress original

Looking forward to SnB tonight but will probably finish up my Flame tank there, instead of this.

Last night I finally got to the fun part of the Guernsey dress, but it’s also going to be the pain-in-the-neck part unless I organize the pattern instructions in a better way. Since every row is different, and I’m working the largest size, I have to keep turning pages just to get one row done. It’s easy to lose track with this pattern. Today I have a date with the copy machine at my Monday gig to make the pattern make more sense. I will post pics of my progress later.

I’m sure I’ll get a lot of knitting done tonight since I have no plans.

Last night I went with my friend Ayelet to a movie screening, Cherish, which was very cute if not a bit convoluted, and has a great soundtrack. After that we went to a party, where instead of meeting new people, I ran into an old friend I haven’t seen in at least 12, probably more like 15 years. We spent the whole evening hanging out with him and his friend and had a pretty good time. It brought back a lot of memories of my days as a club kid (how I knew this guy, from the clubs), and now I want to go out dancing!

Woo hoo! I got

Woo hoo! I got my Denim order. Now I have enough projects to last me through Fall. (As if that’ll keep me from starting more…)
