Congrats Dr. Anna!

Congrats Dr Anna!

So its not totally official, but just needs paperwork. I am so proud to say she is my sister. A Doctor! And soon to be Mom in August too! 2009 is a good year for her!

On the home front here, I did get a new knitting bag, one I have been lusting after for a while:

Its the Zhivago weekender from Off Hand Designs in the persian paisley fabric. Dh is calling it a carpet bag, or old fashioned dr bag, which makes it perfect to go with this post. I love how roomy it is :Looks like a cave inside. It can hold everything AND the Kitchen sink! Its really well made and so nice. Worth every penny of its cost.
Of course, I bought it at Delightful Ewe. I am thinking of saving to get some of the accessory bags in matching fabric, but not sure yet.

The Wallaby made me do it.

There it is, the Pumpkin Patch Wallaby. Number 6 of the Wonderful Wallaby pattern I have now knit. I can't begin to tell you how addictive this pattern is, I lay awake thinking of color combination's.

But I must keep going, and I have 2 other projects on the needles. The first is out of noblesse yarn in green colorway. The pattern is the Corset top by Annie Modesitt.
The 2nd project I cast on only last Thurs. Its the Soleil from Knitty. Some Tattamy tweed yarn that just arrived in the shop, in avacado colorway, had to come home and jump on the needles. I have almost 8 inches knit on it so far.

One other note : My dear friend Carole has a new venture here. I know she will do very well in this as she is such a energetic and creative person!
