Sunday, March 13


You know, it's funny. I used to like the look of my blog. Although plain, it was/is pink and girly and I was ok with that. That has changed. I saw the new look of Jackie's blog and I became hungry. Suddenly, the shades of pink were not good enough for me anymore. I contacted Amy at Quixotic Pixels who had designed Jackie's blog and asked her to design a new one for me. She introduced me to Liz who took over the project and has been working on it ever since. It's a great business- I gave them an idea of a theme and some colors I like and they ran with it. What Liz has made so far looks GREAT and I can't wait for it to be on my blog. I can't show you what it looks like yet, but can tell you that it's centered around the JavaGirl Knits name.

So I went to Noble Knits yesterday and chose the yarn for my La Chica Poncho. I intended to buy the Zanziba and Isis yarn the pattern called for but it was $22.50 per skein and I would have needed four. Because I have so much yarn in my yarn drawers in the laundry room, I can tell you with 100% certainty that Steve would NOT have been happy! So I bought some Esprit from GGH in a soft, sage green. It's similar to this color. It's very soft and will be a VERY pretty spring poncho.

Exciting things in the works over here! Looking forward to seeing your new blog design and new poncho on the needles (are you coming this Tuesday?)!
I have every intention of going on Tuesday. Steve is away AGAIN, so I have a sitter scheduled. Let's hope she remembers this time! LOL
