Get yourself organized

Yarn bowls have been shipped and should be here in two weeks. There are lots coming including some checked bowls.
I wonder which colour is coming home with me?

I finished the knitting on Aileen last night. The shoulders are joined and now I get to start the pick up for the front bands.

I've been talking about Aileen for a while but it was kind of a mystery to you. Now you know it's not a figment of your or my imagination.

Some days it is hard to deal with models. She was mad because of two things.

1. The vest isn't finished. She made me put a scarf on her to hide the lack of front band

2. The vest is too big for her.

The next time I show it in a picture I will be wearing it.
Mr. Canada Post brought in a large box from Della Q. Lots of new needle cases. It might be time for me to get my needles and accessories in order.

The NFL season starts tonight. Yes, I'm very excited about it. Beth and I are playing Fantasy Football again. Our team is awful (or so it appears right now) but we'll see how it goes this weekend. And Amanda should be going home tonight on Big Brother. It's a great day!!
