Peas in A Pod 

I've often joked with #2 that his (my) last name translates from Italian to English as 'procrastinator' or 'one who is never on time' but after 20+ years of marriage, I think I've acquired some of those bad characteristics.

What do you do when two co-workers are expecting and you've decided to make each a baby sweater? Do you start early and get them finished with time to spare? Do you pace yourself and finish them a week or so before the baby shower? Do you finish the first one a week before and then knit like a demon until 2 am the night before the shower in order to complete the second one?

Three guesses which route I took.

Here they are - two purple Peas in a Pod from the summer online Interweave in Debbie Bliss cotton cashmere. Loved working with that yarn!

Relaxing on the Deck 

The camera and computer gods have been conspiring against me lately. I finished the tote bag a few weeks ago and am finally able to post the pics. Here for your viewing pleasure....The winning combo - black floral with olive solid.
Lined inside with hand dyed indigo cotton.
But because I liked the blue combo too, I've started a second bag. It's on a temporary hold though because I've got two pea pod sweaters to make before a baby shower for two co-workers. The pressure's on. Posted by Picasa
