New Look

I’ve had the same old WordPress theme way too long. I need a fresh look. Just trying this on for size. I am supposed to be able to customize the background and the header. We’ll see. Stay tuned as I do a bit of experimenting. Don’t run away please, just because it does not look familiar.

I don’t know about you but I am so glad the weekend is here! I am a bit more mobile now and am enjoying an evening on the porch. I’m even doing a bit around the house. This evening I made a batch of home made ice cream for John (DH) in my Donvier freezer, now I know why that thing has been sitting in the cupboard so long. It does not stir well once the freezing starts at all, so we stirred with a spatula, the stiff kind you spread icing with. John had a big bowl, I had a small one with bananna, and we put the rest in the freezer. I think I’m going to wash that thing up and freecycle it. I love the principal of freecycle, I just hate dealing with all the no-shows and drama from those ‘not selected’.

I finished my cedar leaf shawlette last weekend and am now making the Issara Coat from the fall 2010 Twist Collective edition. Unfortunately, I think this lovely pattern has an error and I have found the author less than responsive for pattern support. Hope I hear back soon, because a weekend of sitting on the backside without busy hands is more than I can cope with!

Happy weekend, the kids may be going back to school, but the temperatures are still in the 100’s and sweltering, it is not fall yet! I don’t refuse to let summer go until I am cast and brace free and can romp a bit!

What’s new today

I’ve almost finished my ‘shawlette’.  I’m loving the leaf edging. 🙂

And…lots of yummy mags to read while I sit on my tooshie and try to heal.

Expecting the next Ottobre issue tomorrow in the mail.  From the chatter on the list it’s landing all around me.  Won’t be sewing but I will be browsing.

Also, the new Knitty is up.  Cute things….I see knitting in my near future.  Perhaps DH will take me to knitted bliss this weekend for a bit of shopping.  🙂

Love this scarf. Too bad I have no neck.

The sideways knitting on this cute sweater sure does hug the curves nicely.  Just wondering if I have too many curves?  It’s a maybe.

Totally cute skirt. But it’s going to need a slip.  Hmmm a knit skirt with hip measurement going up to 52.  Is that legal?  I guess if it’s not too tight it could be adorable in the right circumstance. I love it with tights.  But I’m seeing this on one of the skinny DD’s.

Well…back to knitting.  Perhaps I can finish that shawlette and get a photo up.  It’s going to be lovely!  My friend Mary Beth over at the Stitchery, co-sufferer of bad feet has tuned me into last.fm radio.  I am loving Ladies in Lavender by Joshua Bell.  (Classical Music)  I see it’s a sound track to a movie. I may be looking for it this weekend too.

Oh…one more thing.  I have joined twitter.  I’m not tweeting my own horn much, but I am following alot.  fittingtips is my twitter ID.
