Yo Mama!

The weekend is HERE! Happy Mother's Day to all the Mommy's out there in the great big blogosphere. I hope everyone has a wonderful day with family & friends. I am participating in the Revlon 5K tomorrow. This is my 8th year attending and although always very emotional it is soooooo worth it. Please continue to pray & support all the brave woman battling cancer. I remain optimistic they will find a cure & more preventative medicines.

Now in knitting news. My progress on DSL Tank from Fitted Knits. I have modified the pattern by working in the round. So far so good. I don't anticipate too many problems splitting for the underarms and neckline. Fingers crossed I can figure it out! That gorgeous yarn is Cascades pima tencel in teal. Ummmmm, another Chevron in the works. Socks that Rock in Thistle & Lemongrass. Makes me think of lemonade w/berries.
A little Chevron wave action. Looks soooo different from the Koigu..(which I prefer btw) But I still am enjoying it. Lemony Berry deliciousness.

My totally rock'in new tote. This was hand sewn by my friend Heidi. (Who incidentally is whipping these bad boys up & selling them at our LYS) She knows how much I love Dia De Los Muertos art. Looks like I've got myself a new Knitt'en bag! That's her baby Lily. She is her spokes dog. You can see more bags here. Awwwww, such a mug.

Now you may have noticed this lovely in the first pic. I have been lusting after this dress form forever. My dear friend Tammy got me this for my birthday. Isn't she fantastic??? Love it, love it, love it! I have the best friends. (even if they aren't knitters, they're still pretty cool..dontcha think?) That's about it for now. Have a great weekend all and be good to your Mothers.

LOVE that tank - it looks amazing in that color! Oh, and I am totally jealous of the dress form - I would love to get one but haven't gotten around to it yet.
