Sweater in a weekend

I met Franklin at The Yarn Market News Conference when he spoke on blogging.  Take a look at 'Do Not Do This'.  You will be chuckling for the rest of the day.

I finally worked out the chart for my shawl and have it centered nicely.  I thought that there would be some knitting this afternoon but that isn't going to happen.  Mr. FedEx came with a box and then Mr. Canpar came with five boxes.

There are many, many bags of yarn from Sirdar...

...including a new yarn called Indie.

51% wool, 49% acrylic

8 stitches = 4" on 12mm needles

Can you say 'Sweater in a weekend?'

And the yarn does the fun colour changes for you.

In true Sirdar fashion there are many amazing leaflets as well as a magazine (#385).

Eight colours are available (numbered 150-157 starting at the top left). Okay, I should have numbered the pictures but I need to get this post done and start putting yarn away.  :)

How about Big Brother last night?  Matt really blew it.  That is what happens when you get cocky and think you are safe.  The quick eviction of Brendon was nice.  Unfortunately we are going to have to see him and Rachel together again in the jury house.

The yarn is howling from the other end of the store that it wants to be released from the plastic bags.  Gotta run.  Have a good Friday evening.
