Reminder about Savanna's Benefit

Don't forget that this Saturday, Feb 16th,is the benefit for Savanna. It will be at High Velocity in Beachwood, NJ, from 1 p.m. until closing. It will be a family affair until 7 p.m., and then the adult entertainment will begin. There will be food, plenty of entertainment, and the chance to win some great prizes. Besides my own donations of the scarf and cape, there will be a diamond bracelet, gift certificates for tattoo parlors, restaurants and other services, as well as some great baskets, and lots more. The theme is Harlequin, similar to masquerade or Mardi Gras. C'mon on out for a great time! If you can't make it, you can also donate through Savanna's Myspace page. Thank you so much!

Now, let's talk about WIPS (WIP it good. Yeah, I crack myself up. That's right up there with stash. Heh heh). I'm working on the back of the Cardigan for Arwen. Still. Even though I know I should stop, and start on the fronts. But I'm not. And I probably won't. You see the disaster looming ahead, don't you? Yeah, so do I. No picture because it's raining and dark. Look at the picture below and add eight inches of stockinette. And since I still don't know if I'm going to follow the pattern as written or convert to a modified drop, I'm playing with pattern writing for that.

The 2x2 ribbed scarf from the olive Manos for The Boy, to match his hat. I have about 5 rows of that done. It's not going quickly. That could be because I need to actually pick it up and work on it! Things don't knit themselves when they are in the project bag? Well, darn!

I'm trying to write a pattern for the Elann Alpaca. I hate math. And I keep changing my mind about certain elements that I want it to have. And I'm not sure if I've written the neck bit properly. And why the hell does he have gargantuan shoulders?!?! And how to adjust the pattern for that. But we can still consider a WIP, because I'm thinking about it.

And I want to cast on again for the Odessa. So we can consider that a WIP also, because that's in the back of my mind. And so is the Wyvern in the Karabella Empire silk. And the yarn I need to get to make the scarf I have in mind for the Lang Tosca. So many WIP's, so little time! (heh heh).
