Pictures, finally

Three weeks after moving in, the house is starting to finally come together. We successfully sold furniture that we no longer want in our life on Craig's List this weekend. Our lime green adirondack chairs are gracing our front porch,
the new grill is on the back deck, we have at least one hanging towel bar in our bathroom and life is good. There is still lots to do, but things are really taking shape.
Over the past few weeks, there are a few knitting projects that have also taken shape. A few months ago, I picked up some Classic Elite Obsession at String. Unplied cashmere is a beautiful, luscious thing.
But how does this knit up? Quite nicely, thank you very much. This jumbled mess is actually a scarf with a little ruffled edge, which will be wonderful for the winter.
The yarn sort of variegates as it goes, but all of the colors are always incorporated.
I also finished the pink baby blanket which is HUGE. 36" square. Here it is in progress on the plane to Sedda's wedding...
That was about 2 months ago, and now it is done! Now its just a question of which of my wonderful friends expecting little girls will be the recipient... And time to get started on a sweater for the other. I tried the baby kimono is the be sweet bamboo which I picked up at Loop, but the drape is all wrong. Now I need to find a) another project for four balls of bamboo and b) another baby project. Preferably these will be one and the same. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
So while I'm thinking about this, I'll be watching the debate with Scott and Max. Yes, my cat is watching the debate. He's not a convential cat - we think he's hoping for a Kucinich/Gravel ticket. Fortunately he is not registered to vote.
These days, I think my vote is with Edwards. Don't tell my cat.
