What a gray day! It doesn't rain *that* often here - well not anywhere near as much as it does in England (my homeland). But it has rained all day. The back yard is flooded as the rain is making the rest of the snow melt very fast. We are actually trying to pump the back yard water into the ditch in the front yard. From there it will eventually flow into the river which is about 100 yards away (and still frozen). Look out for river break up pics as soon as it happens. Hopefully no floods in the town this year.

Making slow progress with Shapely Tank. I just haven't really had enough knitting time lately.
Here is an "in progress" shot. This is the front - I always use circs even if I don't knit it in the round.
The rug is actually silver - the purple of the yarn isn't showing too well either.

The pattern states to knit 13 inches before the short rows for bust shaping. As I am short-waisted, I think I will do 12 inches instead. I don't want it to be too long and for the waist shaping to be near my hips!!

So who are the people with no ear for music that keep voting for John Stevens and helped Jennifer get voted off. DUH!
Sorry but it sure seems as if that program is rigged.

VENT over.

The Shapely Tank is coming along nicely. I really love this Sonata yarn. It is a dream to knit with.
Will try to post a pic tomorrow.....when I have stopped steaming about Idol.

Decided to join the Shapely Tank Knitalong

I have been looking at that pattern for ages and really liked it. Theresa knitted it in the round so I have to decide if I follow her or stick to the pattern.

The yarn I will use in Sonata in a purple variegated. It is not shown on the Elann site in this colour any longer. Sure hope I will have enough....

We have all been sick with bad colds for about a week now. This really is the worst cold that I have ever had. Sort of feel as if I have cotton wool in my head. Seems as if half of Canada has the same cold.

One of my most favorite shows ever ended recently. We got to see the last one a couple of weeks ago in Canada. Saw this quiz on Brenda's blog and thought I would take it.
