Feeling blue today

So, here we are, 12 days into the olympics. How's everyone doing? I'm a bit blue...I realized I have more blue knitting projects than any other color...and here's more proof.

Angelica, ala knitting olympics. Day 12. She needs a right sleeve, a seam for the left sleeve, neck detail and a button. Stefanie directed us to this site yesterday, so I felt it would be fitting to order a button for Angelica...but I wouldn't make the deadline, as they take 2-3 weeks to deliver...Gotta Go for the GOLD! So, off to the local buttoneria tomorrow!

Back to the blues...At Marie's I dyed this skein of Knit Picks "dye your own" sock yarn.

I couldn't figure out a good name right away - so I posed it with my favorite springtime candy...

And lo and behold...Spring Chicken was born (or hatched?) Doesn't a freshly wound ball of yarn look surprisingly like a bird's nest? It's less expensive and more knitterly goodness than this eastery option.

I joined Lolly's Project Spectrum, and the postcard swap. Mainly because the colors for March are red and pink. NOT blue!

Back to the olympics - 4 days left kids - let's get this show on the road!

  1. Angelica is looking good. Another thing we have in common is that I love cadbury eggs also. But only around easter time.

  3. Ahhh, I'm totally doing the blue thing too. 4 out of my 5 current projects are a shade of blue. Maybe it's the winter blues?

    P.S. Cadbury eggs..... drool
