Now, doesn't that sound like the title of a country music song? We didn't get the chance to see any fireworks this Independence Day. Personally, I think Willow is still a little young for it and would be terrified of the noise up close. She fell asleep by 7:30pm last night, so in the end the point was moot.
I started a new knitting project and I didn't even have to buy new yarn for it! It is the 'Sweetness' pullover pattern from the Spring 2003 issue of Knitty. Incidentally, that was the same issue that 'Sitcom Chic' was from. I'm knitting it up in some aqua Lion Brand Homespun and it is soooo soft. I had originally bought this yarn for a baby blanket 2+ years ago... um, yeah... said baby ended up getting a different present. The yarn is knitting up in some subtle beige and light lavender stripes and is going to look so cool when finished. I'm altering the pattern a bit as well - changed it to 3/4 length sleeves and making the sweater into more of a A-line to accomodate my wide hips. So far I have finished both sleeves and have about 5" completed on the body - I'll take some pics later this week and show everyone what it looks like.
