what's new

Since the last time I posted:
i loved learning things about you :: i realized that I still can't throw a football :: i thought a lot about tricia u and how she taught herself to knit with unsharpened pencils :: i watched a family of turkeys cross the street :: i finished both fronts of my sweater :: i felt happy :: i got a haircut :: i collected pocketfuls of acorns :: i had coffee with friends :: i gave kisses :: i walked trouble, a lot :: i made more pesto :: i got caught in the rain :: i went shopping :: i bought this (in dark grey) :: i had lunch with friends :: i realized that the back of my sweater was shorter than the front :: i ripped out the back of my sweater :: i made chocolate chip cookies. 3x :: i said good bye to summer :: i welcomed fall :: i re-knit the back of my sweater :: i tried a few new recipes :: i felt sad :: i cast on for the sleeves for my sweater:: i went to yoga :: i had dinner with friends :: i learned a new technique for weaving in ends, thanks shelly :: i laughed until i cried :: i went to an air show :: i gave hugs :: i took photos :: i spoke to an old friend.

happy monday!

I laughed and laughed when I pulled up Anthropologie. I really thought I was going to see something really cool to wear with all of your gorgeous sweaters. When I saw it was another sweater, I lost it! I actually saw an exact sweater that I've been wanting yesterday at a store, but passed it up because I felt guilty when I could knit it. Heck, I'm going back and buying it. If you can, I can too! Thanks for the inspiration~ha~Jan
