For Outtings With Romeo


I have gotten a few emails with Congrats on meeting my first deadline and excitement over not being able to wait to see it when it comes out next year. All of the emails tell me to celebrate my hard work! And I have... but not in usual way. No champagne (though I have some in the fridge for the weekend), no dinner in a fancy restaurant (Ron made grilled Tilapia), and no cake or decedent dessert (a bowl of ice cream was in order).

So what did I do to celebrate last night? I cast on a sweater!

Yep, I am working on a sweater. LOL.

The yarn for it really was the treat. It is Dream In Color Softy in a color called Chinatown Apple. Kinda pricey for the 600 yards I need to make this Juliet sweater. But it is a celebration right? I will always have my sweater and each time I put it on, I'll remember that I made it that year I was working on writing my first book.

I LOVE that sweater! I wish I looked cute in that style of stuff- I just look pregnant. Enjoy it, you've earned it!

Hmmm... you know, I'll probably look preggers too, but thankfully my bust is endowed enought the I might, just might, be able to pull it off. Hopefully it doesn't exaggerate the big bust though. (insert eyes rolling here). Stupid clothes... why can't they fit right.

Did I miss that you have a tattoo on your foot?

Kerry said...

LOL, yes Lori, there is a tattoo on my foot. Go in my archives to Feb 13th 2008. I got it for my 30th birthday. It is my FOURTH tattoo.

Love that style - Your glass button beads would be a beautiful addition to the finished product! Oh how I wish I knew how to knit!
