Finished Passionflower Tank!

Stan and I

So, I neglected to mention that that date I went on a year and a half ago kinda stuck. :)

And now back to knitting!

I have a finished object for you to see!

Me in Passionflower Tank

That's my Passionflower Tank out of Louet Euroflax Linen. It fits quite perfectly, and I think that once it starts to stretch out with wear, and once it's washed a couple of times it'll be even better.

I do have two more skeins of the Louet Euroflax Linen left. Does anyone want to make any suggestions as to how I should use it? I think this tank top took me only 3 skeins somehow...

Next up, is Kim Hargraves' pattern Jasmine.

This photo is from someone on Ravelry. Her Jasmine is quite beautiful. My yarn will be Rowan 4ply also that same color, even though it looks much more red in the photo below:

Rowan 4 ply

I met up with Illanna today at The Point to hang out and knit for a bit after work. I was really amazed though, I didn't realize she was such a violent person. I went to look at some sparkly silvery variegated yarn. I showed it to her because I thought she might like it. Next thing I know, she's telling me I'm buying it. I tried really hard to resist. I told her I couldn't. "What about the children!?" I pleaded. But my words fell on deaf ears. She pulled out that PPK I've seen on countless occasions. I knew what was next. My credit card came out of my wallet and through my tears I signed the receipt for some of the most beautiful yarn I've seen this year.

Hand Dyed Sterling Silver

I don't know who spun it, or who dyed it. Really, all I know is the content of it (there's superwash merino, silk, nylon, and silver) and that it's pretty. If you want more of it, you should probably contact The Point. They didn't have a lot left there after I was forced to buy this skein by Illanna.

Anyway, time for me to watch more Olympics. I'm heading to Rhode Island this weekend, which means lots of travel time to get some knitting done. Hopefully I'll be able to get Jasmine started (I'll be trying to knit it in the round instead of seaming it like it says to).

That top is way cute, I love the little keyhole detail at the neck.

For the record, I don't even know what a PPK is!! Furthermore, I have a skein of that sparkly yarn too that YOU forced ME to buy. And let's not talk about the whole cupcake incident. Also for the record, your Passionflower tank came out great. I don't know what you should use your extra yarn for, maybe return it? I always seem to use less yarn than I anticipated, unless I think I might run short, in which case I run out right before binding off.

Gotta go type nonsense words into word verification. Wish me luck!

I don't think I can bring it back because I think Annie's has a 3 month window and I'd need my receipt, which I don't have.

YOU were the one who just mentioned the cupcake incident! And don't blame me that I, in turn, forced you to buy yarn! You started it!

I've got a gub waiting right here for you!

The only gun I have is made out of soap, and it turned into bubbles during the rain storm.
