Because I have some pix of new FO's BUT they're still sitting in my camera instead of here...

You Are the Index Finger

You are ambitious, driven, and capable.
You aren't afraid to take responsibility for your actions - or place the blame on whoever deserves it.
You are honest, free thinking, and objective. You see things in your own way - and you aren't afraid to let everyone know about it.

You get along well with: The Thumb

Stay away from: The Ring Finger

I'm Back! Wednesday, May 16, 2007

Yes, here I am; alive and well. Went to Sheep and Wool - yes, of course I bought more yarn. How silly of you to even ask!

On a sad, very sad note, my favorite TV show of all time, Gilmore Girls, ended yesterday. I sobbed like a fool during the last fifteen minutes! It was like losing multiple members of your family all at once. I'm still sad...Thank goodness for DVR!!

And now, the moment I'm sure you've all been waiting for. At long (LONG) last, the Doctor's Bag from "Knit 2 Together" is done! Done!! DONE!! Woo-hoo! I still have the blister on my finger from sewing the lining in! The bag is done in Manos del Uruguay in Cherry held double. I went down a needle size from the 11US the pattern called for to a 10.5 US to get gauge. I hope you can tell from the photo of me that this bag is freaking huge! It's meant to be a sort of carpetbag - a weekender if you will. It may, in fact, be a weeker if your clothes aren't too big!

A special shoutout to my pal, Javejem, for her picture-taking expertise! The background is the courtyard at the USDA in Beltsville where we work. It's really quite lovely. Here goes:

The stitch detail displayed hanging from a tree...

Lovely among the azaleas...

Wildlife and wild lining...

Okay, so I may only be 5'3" tall, but this bag is big...

Freaking Huge!!!!!!
