We'll be ordering pizza from our new neighbors, Atomic Pizza. They also have beer, wine and Coke products available. So come hungry and ready to have some fun!

So Very Soft and So Very Pink

This is my Quick and Cozy Cardigan in Cascade's Soft Spun, the sweater I started during my birthday weekend out at Edgefield. It has knit up quickly, and the yarn is so lovely to work with. It's so soft, and so pink! I love it!

I just have the second sleeve to finish and sew in, but I'm about halfway done with that. And then I need to finish up the collar.

I can tell I'll be wearing this sweater a lot!

Cheri's Tweedy Aran Cardigan

Here's a pic of my Tweedy Aran Cardigan, as promised. This is the left front. I'd better get busy, it's supposed to be done for class this Sunday!

I'm really loving the yarn I chose for this project! And what a great name for a yarn, Therapi. That is exactly what knitting is for me, therapy. And the pattern is really fun and interesting. The perfect combination of challenging and enjoyable; which makes it relaxing for me!

Tweedy Aran Cardigan

I'm currently taking the Tweedy Aran Cardigan class with Vivanne at The Naked Sheep Knit Shop.

Here's Vivianne, modeling her lovely finished sweater. I'm making mine using Therapi by South West Trading Company. Such nummy yarn! It's an incredibly soft blend of jadeite, wool and silk fibers; with a beautiful sheen! And although the pink is just lovely, I chose turquoise to knit up this sweater!

Once I have a little more knit up, I'll post a photo!

I'm all out of love...

"I'm lying alone with my head on the phone
Thinking of you til it hurts
I know you hurt too, but what else can we do
Tormented and torn apart
I wish I could carry your smile in my heart
For times when my life seems so low
It would make me believe what tomorrow could bring
When today doesn't really know, doesn't really know...

I'm all out of love, I'm so lost without you..."

Oh yes, you recognize those might even be singing the words. Maybe you're like me, and you know all the words to all the songs? Yes, I'm talking about Air Supply...

Brad took me to Chinook Winds last weekend to see Russell and Graham (or should I say I forced Brad to take me!). For those who share my love of Air Supply, it was quite wonderful! They sound exactly the same, and it was a fun show! For those who don't share my taste in music...stop laughing! This is not an April Fool's joke!

Thank you, Russell and Graham, for an evening of happy memories!

Thank you, Brad, for being such a sweetie!

"Lost in love..."
