I'm cookin baby, I'm really cookin!

I got the front and the back DONE! Or it could be the back and the front. They are both the same. Now, onto the sleeves. I will do these both together. It will go quicker. What was I waiting for?

Remember I showed some Classic Elite Yarn earlier? Remember I said I will probably go back and get 1 of every color. Remember? Well I did.
Put your sun glasses on, it may blind you

This is Classic Elite "Flash" - I love this stuff!

I am sorry, I have been holding out. I received some really lovely stuff from one my favorite people Missa. I need to share:

I can't wait to dig into this stuff! I am going to use it to make some of the patterns at Knit Pixie. The orange yarn and fleece is for the thrummed mittens! I won't touch it until Tammy is done, I won't do it!

Beth, that is a beautiful sweater in the making. And that yarn! As I scroll down my breath is taken away... each time. You are one lucky lady to have such lovely yarn.

I enjoy reading your blog.

Hey Beth! Wow, you are really trucking with that Cotton Tape! Awesome!

The Classic Elite is amazing. I will keep an eye out for it... we all need some bright colors in the wardrobe :)

Lovely stuff from Missa--lucky you!

Have a good weekend!
