Playing Catchup

Sooo, I've been very lax updating the blog.  Lots has been going on!

For one thing, we bought a new car:

Well, new to us, anyway.  It's actually a 2000 Mazda MPV, with 110,000 miles on it.  Hey: it was cheap.  It also smells very, very strongly of some sort of nasty aggressive air "freshener".  It smells terrible, but fortunately it's the car my sweetie is driving, and it doesn't bother him as much as it bothers me.  That hasn't stopped him from naming it Stinky, however :-)

Some knitting catchup:

The finished Amused.  I've already worn it several times.  The Cash Iroha doesn't seem like it will wear terribly well, but I still think it's beautiful, and the color just sings.

I made a few mods, the most bizarre of which was making the left sleeve about half and inch longer than the right.  I carry my left shoulder higher, and that made the sleeve look shorter.  The weirdest thing about it is that I don't really notice it in other clothes; maybe it was because I was making this one--I got picky!

Tuesday was out first anniversary--we made it!  We spent the weekend in Vancouver; pics to come.

Oh good -- I was worried about Cary! Glad to see he's still around.

Your Amused leaves me: Awed. Still sticking to baby garments -- yep, that's me.

Nope, we are now a 2-car family. We went from zero cars to two cars in less than 18 months. Sheesh!
