No Knitting... but beautiful flower photos

Think my sister might have a little bit of a green thumb? I'm not sure how she is going to maintain a knitting addiction AND take care of all of this, but I'm sure she'll figure it out.

I got my yarn to make Sizzle. (a pattern by Wendy at Knit and Tonic) I bought Kertzer Butterfly 100% mercerized cotton. It's shiny and drapey and I hope it works. I left it at the yarn shop to be wound. It's sort of a steel blue. Wendy posted lots of substitute yarns but she never mentioned that one. I don't know. I guess we'll find out. I love working with that yarn.

The brown sweater for Colin is very easy but going very slowly. DK yarn and small needles makes for a slow project. I didn't get to knit last night because of the ballgame. The Curve won in extra innings. It was a good game. I ate way too much, but we had a good time and I got to know the other Habitat For Humanity board members a little better which is good. Bonding socially makes for much better teamwork.

I'm really looking forward to Stitch n Pitch at PNC. My sister is all bummed out now that she can't go because she is going to be out of town. I think I've created a monster.

Project Runway tonight... woo hoo! Love it. And since we're on the subject of television, wasn't it great of Ken Jennings to rip on Jeopardy on his blog after winning 2.5 million on there? That's gratitude for ya. What a jerk.

Yeah, what is up with Ken Jennings? My finace was reading me selections from his Web site last night. I think he's really cracked out, like in serious need of some mental health. Alex Trebek is a cyborg? Come on!
