Ramblings about knitting and whatever else crosses my mind

Comments, comments!

To respond to a couple of comments:

I have pretty much decided to go with Aloe in the Blue Sky Alpacas Cotton. It was a tough choice because all the colors are so pretty and none of them really stood out as being the must have. Well, except Honeydew that looks soooo pretty but the color probably wouldn't look that good on me. I haven't ordered the yarn yet but did order the pattern! This should be a great knit for me since my recent sweaters and tanks have all been at smaller gauges. I can't wait to use this yarn. I felt it up a couple of months ago, and it feels so amazing, coming from someone who isn't crazy about cotton!

Check out Melissa's finished cashmere Lucky. *drools* I loved knitting Lucky, up until the 1x1 ribbed band and the seaming so I admire anyone who can manage another one!

Who is this random person coming to my blog asking about her Christmas gift? You think of all people, I would put off one of my bestest, longest term friends ever on her Christmas gift, just because I wasn't going to see her for awhile and put off finishing her gift to work on other things? Me? Nah, not me!!! Pssst, Steph, it's almost finished, it's taken me longer than I thought it would. I'm thinking I should get it to the post office Tuesday so start checking your mail on Wednesday.

You know you are having a rough basketball season when someone puts your Coach up for auction on eBay. We're used to rough football seasons but a 10-6 basketball record is not something we're used to, and we don't take too kindly to it. It's truly depressing, as silly as that may sound. Kentucky basketball has been such an important part of my life for most of it. I was raised on it, and my Dad and I rarely have a conversation that doesn't start with the latest basketball info (even in the off season). My brother and I don't talk a whole lot since he's across country but nothing draws us together like the Cats losing. Some of my favorite childhood memories involve trips to Lexington, just me and my Dad, to watch the Cats play. It's ugly right now. I've been a big supporter of our coach for his entire tenure, when he's come under some criticism, but he's losing me now. He's one of the best human beings in the game but I'm not so sure he's right for the job.

BTW, if you see the movie Glory Road, here's a great article that places the game that is the subject of the movie in a non-Disneyfied historical context. Because Kentucky was the opponent in that infamous game, we've all been a little nervous about how we would be portrayed. According to reports from those that have seen it, it doesn't sound like we have been portrayed too poorly, just as the powerful villian you should be cheering against in the movie (but I'll be cheering for them, even though the outcome won't be in doubt. :). It also wasn't even close to the biggest upset in NCAA championship history like the movie claims. I do want to see the movie. My Dad, on the other hand, has no desire to. He saw it the game when it was played and doesn't care to see it again. As a local radio guy said, "I can turn on the TV and watch the Cats lose for free." :(

    I think you'll be really happy with Aloe, and it will look fabulous on you. Yay!

    aloe is a great color, good choice!

    thanks for the plug on lucky - yes, i have to admit that the seaming sucks, but the cashmere makes it oh so worth it!
