I am a school bus driver. The observant among you may have noticed that the photo of the baby blanket (still incomplete) is taken against a background of school-bus-seat-blue pleather but I digress. I drive a group of high school and middle school students who like to fancy that they live in da ghetto. Yo! 813 represent! Anyways, it's most gratifying when these corn-rowed, blinged out, baggy panted ... well, hoodlums stop on their way up the steps and say "Miss! What is that? How do you do it? Is it easy? Show me!" I doubt that they think I'm cool or anything bizarre like that, but I'm definitely an anomaly in their little lives.

My Beloved, modeling the thrummed mittens (complete with idiot strings) scarf and hat all currently winging their way to Ontario. Everything is Plymouth Encore. Hat was knitted on US 8 circs and dpns, Scarf was knitted on 5.0 mm needles in a k1 p1 rib until I got sick of it, and the mittens . . . hmmm, I'll have to hunt that down for ya'll.
Mitten close up. I quite like them.
Kitty Pi knitted from the pattern in Wendy Johnson's book of Noro Kureyon and Cascade Heather held together . . . should have taken a picture of the outside and it's too late now as it too is en route up north.
The still unfinished baby blanket. Bernat Baby Coordinates in Lemon Custard. It's essentially a feather and fan lace with a six stitch/row garter border knit on US size seven needles (as an aside, I despise Susan Bates circular needles. They don't relax for anything.)
Skinned Muppet Flip flops. I'm sort of embarassed by them but look! Finished knitting!

Don't you hate it when you run out of yarn and time and you were planning on wearing your latest creation? What to do, what to do . . .
Edited to add: The lovely lady in the ombre blouse and no pants is Patricia Field, presumably of http://patriciafield.com AND an Oscar nominee for the costumes in The Devil Wears Prada!!

Heh, I got comment nagged lol. I will be posting more in the future when I'm not under insane self imposed deadlines. I went from finishing the christmas hat/scarf/mitt set to working on a feather and fan patterned baby blanket. Both are pale yellow, the scarf hat and mitts done in Plymouth . . . uh . . . something *wink* (encore maybe?) and the baby blanket in Bernat Baby Coordinates which is shimmery and I love it! The blanket will be about 45" long when it's done, is 18" long at the moment and the shower it's going to is on the 17th of this month. Gotta go!
