Happiness is seeing at last the sleeves of young Gwyneth going round and round! Bonus Giggle: using one long circular needle to do it – I never tire of the fun of it.

Lately, I’ve been knitting my in-the-round projects inside out to keep ’em clean.


and am I ever ready! FINALLY, we’re seeing some hot weather – I’m going to a beach party tomorrow and get to wear a printed blue skirt, tighty whitey T, flip-flops and my new Sommarfest earrings, Even though I ranted about the fair last week, I did find these blue beaded lovelies…


I spyed a redhead on the #66 wearing cobalt blue earrings and was hooked – hadda find some for me. I double dog dare you to find someone that blue does NOT look good on…

    Blue is one of my favorite colors but it seems that you can’t always find cute blue clothes (beyond jeans, button downs & navy suits). And when I say blue, I mean blue – not turquoise or teal. I recently spied a blue & white striped dress and nabbed it just because I haven’t seen a blue dress. Years ago I had actually had a pair of blue suede shoes! I have some white & blue yarn languishing in my basket – it was supposed to become a spring purse – in need of a new project. Looking at your earings makes me think I should buy more blue yarn. Habu is calling me!

    Andersonville redeems itself! They are beautiful. The beach will be the Only Place to Be tomorrow — the garb you describe sounds perfect for the day and perfect for you — it’s a recipe for summer bliss! Have a great time. And Gwyneth looks lovely.

    Oh, very clever on the inside out knitting… Great earrings! And have a blast at the beach party – sounds fun. :)

  7. Jennifer says:

    Aaaaah the beach. Where else can you find a more beautiful combination of blue and green? Blue with brown is my new favorite color combination, as you can see in my beachy blog pictures. Have a lovely time at the party!

    I would be that person that cannot wear most shades of blue. Those earrings are gorgeous!

    For some reason this–“Lately, I’ve been knitting my in-the-round projects inside out to keep ’em clean”–made me laugh out loud. :-D

    Love the new earrings!

    p.s. – Thoroughly enjoyed “Smilla’s Sense of Snow” when I read it several years ago…the movie was also a good one.
