some set backs, some steps ahead

First, the good news. I won a blog contest.

The prize was this knitpicks bag and the noro.

The bag will be great for traveling, and the noro will make a great scarf.

The scarf in the picture is "branching out". The photo doesn't do it justice, but I think it's going to make a great christmas gift for my friend Denise. She doesn't read this blog, so it's safe to post here.

The sweater is from the Debbie Bliss mag. I'm loving it. I think it's going to be my favorite ever.
Now it just needs some buttons and it's all done.

On a down note, the advanced pilates training I was hoping to do in december is cancelled.
There's a different one the following week, though, so I decided to take advantage of the offer and do it. It means 4 long days of advanced pilates in portland, but it will leave me with only 2 workshops to finish and that will be nice.
I've been thinking about what to do with this blog. I just don't know. I know posting every day is a bit much for me, but I'm really thinking in 2009 to make a REAL commitment to post at least once per week. We'll see, the best laid plans........

what do you do when your bed isn't where you want it?

you sleep in it anyway

Or you find yourself some nice warm laundry.....

Either way, it's all good.

On the knitting front, I'm almost done with the Debbie Bliss sweater, it's been set aside for a while though in favor of christmas gift knitting. A couple of scarves for friends and some socks that are begging to be finished. I just keep finding more things I want to make, and Bea was no help today when she listed some yummy yarn on her destash, and it begged to come over to my house.

Like, just what I needed, more yarn.

Thanks, Bea!
