Hi Kelly,
Isn't it fun to read everybody's list? Anne was right, it is sort of like a game of "I never." I hope the decaffinated sweater dried off okay.

Kelly said...

Yup, the decaf sweater looks good, thanks for asking! I don't even think there are any water marks..crossing my fingers on that one! I gave it a quick once over after it dried and then shoved it in my knitting bag before I could find anything to break my heart!

It's like I'm a kid again. I was always the one to lose at the game of Tag. Always getting tagged. Now two of you have gotten me! Wasn't this fun to do? We've done a lot, but there's still a lot left to do. I did short rows on a bag and on a bib, but I'll have to brush up before I can help. I'm one of those who learns it, does it, forgets it, and has to look it up again! My brain must be too full?

Hey Kelly,

We missed you at this weeks S'n'B. Some of us went on a mini "field trip" to Michaels. Knelley and I scored 710 yd skeins of Lily Sugar and Cream cotton yarn on clearance for $5!! Hope to see you this Thursday!

Kelly said...

Jen, thanks, I missed all of you too!!! I am doing my best to make it this Thursday and it looks like I will be able to come. I can't wait! I'd like to see that yarn too :).

Hi Kelly - Thanks for your comments on my blo!. I've got sock love! So much fun. Not finished yet, but I hope to get it done today. Hope your short rows went well. They're fun to do.
