Thoughts for today....

My Prayers are with the people of Japan.

I am still adjusting to the recent springing forward an hour at 2am, Sunday, March 13, 2011.  I felt much less tired this morning than yesterday or the day before.  I am having trouble falling asleep.  I am going to try a cup of chamomile tea.

I am reading Sock Yarn One-Skein Wonders: 101 Patterns That Go Way Beyond Socks!.  I highly recommend this book.  It is a must have addition to your knitting library if you enjoy knitting with fingering and dk weight yarns!  There are so many beautiful patterns that I have my eye on knitting in this book.  I will share as soon as I decide which pattern that I am going to knit first.

I just found out that I am a runner-up in a contest by Sweaterbabe on the Fans Group on Ravelry. I am so excited !

Have a beautiful day!

Mother's Cowl

Here's a photo of me wearing the cowl that I designed for my Mom.  I think that I am going to send it to her for Christmas along with a few other handknits!
