Speaking of imaginary friends, all of my children have had imaginary friends and they were active members of our household. My daughters (I have 3) used to have an imaginary friend that they called "Nut" (aptly named, don't you think?) Last I heard, nut was travelling in China. I wonder what he's up to.
It's raining here in Los Angeles. It's kind of nice. It puts me in a knitting mood and I have been working on the Tea Leaves Cardigan. I just hit the point where you separate the sleeves. I love when you get to that part of the pattern. It really starts moving along from there and you start to see the garment take shape. Although I am loving knitting this pattern and know it will be something I am going to really enjoy wearing, I can't help looking forward. I'm always looking forward. There are so many great patterns out there and, it seems, not enough time to knit them. Of course, I will probably never knit all of the patterns that I want to, but there are some you just can't pass up. So, next up is Sabbatical by the uber-talented Connie Chang Chinchio. Connie is amazing. She has so many gorgeous patterns that she has written and she keeps cranking them out. Sabbatical is one of those designs that are both beautiful and truly functional. It looks so comfortable. Something that you can throw on over jeans (would be fab with long pearls and funky boots) and, also, wear to work and look really polished. I'll be knitting it using The Fiber Co.'s Road to China Light in Autumn Jasper that I purchased from The Backwards Loop, which is quickly becoming one of my favorite online stores.
