Working on getting it together around here. I've had lots of waiting room fun, which equals lots of knitting time. But sadly a lost camera cable is causing me grief today.

Kaya, over at sisterly knits tagged me. The Power of Seven. So here goes...
1) Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog. (check!)
2) Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird. (see below)
3) Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs. (hoping these will play along)
4) Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog. (done)
1) I drink way too much Diet Coke. I have a small caffeine addiction. I must have the stuff in the house. I go to the grocery when we are running out. (I fasted today for my lab work for my physical and as soon as I gave my blood I went to the machine at the hospital. It's that bad.)

How long does it take to knit a short row heel? As long as I waited for the doctor and then a few rows more. And who knows what ick I may have picked up while waiting in there surrounded by people with all manner of coughs.

Wow, for some reason these colors uploaded funky. All of them have a weird overcast washed out quality on my computer. Huh. Oh well, the colors are much prettier then what I'm seeing.

Colinette Jitterbug sock-ette, aka short ankle socks with a short row heel. The stripes are making me happy, I like a bright ugly sock. I rarely find I am cold enough to wear wool socks out and about here in New Orleans. Lacy ones, yeah, I wear those a lot and I think my next pair will be lacy. These are knit on Addi Turbo 2's, smaller I should be using, this fabric is tight. They should wear like iron.
The Pinwheel Jacket in action. Well, sort of, because my printer is way the heck upstairs and I am too lazy to bring the laptop up there these days. So I sort of skimmed over the directions and am hoping it turns out. More overly bright colors in action. I can wear them with the socks. It looks like a Rasta hat right now bunched up like it is.
The spiral is cool. I'm really uncertain how this is going to wear, but I am enjoying the knit itself. I'm ready to put the stitches on hold for the sleeves and keep moving on to the finish. This is surprisingly quick to knit. This Noro Cash Iroha is delightful to work with. It's wooly but not harsh in the least. The cashmere content makes it soft and springy. I love the color ways with the other Noro yarns but I just can't get past the scratchy feel in the skein. Too many choices out there for me to pick up scratchy yarn.

So I am sitting here in bed, having eaten my breakfast in bed, had Big Brother bring me my computer in bed and I am thoroughly enjoying myself.
I feel like a bit of a fraud in this getup but it is fun. The dress was a bargain and the shoes are my birthday gift to myself.
