Dumpity Dump Dump Dump

So I've been in the dumps a bit lately - could explain why I didn't bother until last night to figure out why I wasn't able to post - so so so much is going on personally that it's sometimes hard to focus but after a good talking to by my dear friend Clare - I'm feeling much better - I even got up this morning to post some long over due pictures, the printer is humming with the Breezy Cardigan patterns spitting out - the yarn is supposed to be here Monday - not sure what to do about the postal strike but maybe since I'm in such a better mood so will the postal workers be and the strike will be over.

So what's new here?
Well Linda dropped off the sample of the lastest installment of the Dream Club - a cute, cute vest done in lace weight. Doesn't look like much but it's very nice on - over a t-shirt or a tank.

Here's the yarn - Baby Laceweight Sour Pear. the color but not the vest? There is enough in stock for a Breezy Cardigan or two - for those who love this particular shade of green!

Next is Camille - another design by Meghan Jackson that didn't get my full attention and adoration until she came in wearing it. Both Jennie and I were all over her, touching it, asking what is this you've got on.
It could be because this was all I had ever seen of it -

which is it funny little shape - not a shape that I could figure out what to do with.

But then.....Meg showed up wearing it slightly askew with pretty pin on her shoulder and suddenly, Jennie and I were racing to the shelves to choose colors. This is what Jennie chose - Rhubarb in Silk Cashmerino by Dye Hard Fiber Arts. It's designed for one skein however, it's easily customizable to be bigger.

It's a dreary, rainy day here - just the perfect day to settle down with a new knitting project! And I think I will do just that!
