Hi Maryland

I didn't end up buying more Silk Garden to make the Very Harlot Poncho. I put 5 skeins of Kureyon into my basket at A Good Yarn in Brookline Village (I discovered that I can go there on my lunch hour, I'm not sure whether that's a good or bad thing) but decided to go with Rowan Kid Classic. It's wonderfully soft and is working up beautifully. I'm into my second skein right now, and with any luck there will be significant car, airport, airplane, and car knitting done tomorrow. Yes, I still plan to wear this baby on Saturday night. No, I do not have a back-up plan. Yes, you may place your bets now.

Here is the progress on the poncho:


The color is a pale dusty rose and I just love it.

Tomorrow, Mike and I will go to Maryland for the weekend. We live outside of Boston. Our flight leaves from TF Green airport outside of Providence, RI, at 6am. I have our alarm set to go off tomorrow morning at 3am. Yep, that's right, 3am. Have you wrapped your mind around that yet? 3am? I'm also setting the alarm on my cell phone because it is quite possible that our regular alarm will go off at 3am (ungodly) and I will, in my sleepy state, think, "well, that's not right" and turn off the alarm. If you're wondering, I don't know why I'm still awake either.

I'm having a really hard time writing this entry tonight. My birthdays have been pretty rough for the past couple of years, and so maybe I'm a little worried. This morning, an email from my aunt in California informed the family that her dad, my G'pa, is failing, and will probably not be with us much longer. It was really hard for me to read that and feel so helpless. I put a little card into the mail to him today, and I am hoping it wings its way to him quickly. So, while I am excited about our trip to Maryland, I'm also sad.

There were bright spots to my day, though, and the brightest one came when I opened my birthday gift from my best friend. The gift was a silver necklace from Tiffany & Co. This is my first ever Tiffany & Co. item, and I love it. I put it on, and I am wearing it now, and I just freaking love it. The thing is - sure, it is Tiffany, and it is gorgeous, but getting this gift of a tiny perfect heart that I can wear every day means more than I can begin to articulate. I am a lucky, lucky girl. I am lucky enough to have had Kim as my best friend since I was 14 years old. I can honestly say she is the one human being who has never let me down. Not ever, not once. And her timing is always impeccable.

I'll leave you with one final image from today:



Hmmm...a mystery...

Have a great weekend, and thanks for stopping by. I'm going to bed now. :)

    Is someone else a redhead now? Because that whole having more fun thing about blonds is total bunk. ;)
