Mi Trente y Dos Felicidades Celebracion!

That's my 32nd Birthday Celebration! It was so wonderful. I truly felt loved from my family and my coworkers. You would have thought this was a big birthday like 16, 30, 40, etc. But I've learned that every new year God blesses me with is a BIG birthday. Enjoy the pics!

Running Behind...

I'm running behind! I just got home and it's nearly 9pm. Today was a very busy day so I'm postponing the Fair Isle post until I'm able to completely compile everything. Sorry!

Guess What!

I'se gainfully and permanently employed now!! Picture me saying this in my Sophia from Color Purple voice. Yes yes, I was offered a permanent position and I'se took it. I'm now a Contract Specialist for a Health Care company. Insurance kicks in in 30 days. Can't wait. I want some more glasses. After being out of the work game for nearly 3 years it feels good. Praise God!

I meant to post pics of my Deep V Argyle Vest progress on yesterday but I ran out of time. So here it is! I'm really enjoying this project. Fair Isle keeps you engaged and boy am I alert and engaged. I'm enjoying the colorwork ride but I can't wait to apply these new skills to a man's vest. Sidenote: I really would like to do a really chic means knitwear book. I even have a name already. Nunya!

The yarn I'm using is Sublime's Cashmere Merino Silk DK in Clove and Navy. 75% Extra Fine Merino, 20% Silk, and 5% Cashmere. Super soft and silky! I'm itching to pair this vest with a deep navy or periwinkle button down and some nice flowy navy pinstripe trousers. Visions of Chalcedony cufflinks are passing through my mind and some great pointy toe pumps with a killer heel.

Oooh can't wait!

Signposting Week of March 3rd

It's MARCH. Yes M-A-R-C-H! My birthday month (yes, shameless birthday plug). I love March and not just for that reason. March signifies the beginning of spring. That Easter is just around the corner; I love all the pretty little dresses and shoes. And ANd AND that Daylight Saving Time (no "s" people. It's not a bank) will kick in soon and I don't have to watch for Depression lurking around every corner. Sunlight is a good thing people in the Government. Who in the HECK gave the governmnet permission to mess with something that God gave and that they can't even touch let alone comprehend? Bring it on back Kamika. I feel so invigorated when I have a few more hours of sunlight. I know I'm not the only one.

I've really gotten off track. I just wanted to list a few more
