After my crappy crappy day yesterday (did I mention my sad attempt to find the new IW knits?) Something came in the mail to make me feel better.
Blue sky organic cotton in Thistle. I’m going to make their Fitted Tank pattern once the weather starts to warm up. (Yes, I’m using the recommended yarn, isn’t that crazy?)
Of course, this yarn is the backordered part of my last WEBS order (the one that UPS won’t deliver) and was shipped a week after the other yarn. I swear, I need to start some sort of USPS fan club. My postman never lets me down!
I spend a lot of time taking photos on either the dining table or a nearby radiator. Today I realized that I always look down and see the exact same thing.
Poor Leon. He wants in on the action.
Today is apparently “fix things” day around here. The dining room looks like this; we’re rehanging this door, which won’t shut properly.
(ignore the dust bunnies please, and look at Leon’s tail above… constant vigilance is required so that they don’t rise up and kill us in our sleep)

Yummy Blue Sky yarn. That should be worth the wait. I love that tank pattern too. Looking forward to seeing you knit it up.
We *are* knitting twins. I have that same pattern and yarn in light blue in my stash! Maybe if I can finish my Wicked while you finish your Sahara, we can do a Cable Down Raglan KAL!
I made that same pattern in the hot pink Blue Sky Cotton. Love it. It’s a super fast knit.
Nice job on Wicked, too. I plan on making the long sleeved version. Just haven’t found the perfect yarn yet.
I also love Wendy’s little “Swing Coat” I’m hoping to see a few knitted up before I tackle that one. I’d like to see a longer sleeve.
That Blue Sky yarn is a gorgeous color. I’ve been admiring it at my LYS for months, but cotton usually is so hard on my wrists and hands.
