Contest FYI

For those of you looking for something new to read, Confessions of a Knitter is having a little contest. Go ahead & visit her blog & check it out!

Courtney is finishing "How to Knit a Love Song" & would like to pass it along to another knitter. Simply leave her a comment, mention her contest on your blog & then you're all set. If you win the book, you can hold a similar contest & pass it along to one of your readers. I thought it was a pretty nifty idea - kind of like a literary, knitterly chain-letter.

On the knitting front: Working on the "Tapestry Cowl" by Pepperknit. It's a great lesson in color work & double knitting. No photos yet - I'll wait until you can actually see something taking shape.

On the weather front: Snow is still lingering, clouds have returned, & the temps are cool. Surely spring will arrive soon? Lots of soccer games scheduled for outdoor play have been postponed due to the weather. The JV squads are feeling the brunt of these postponements. - I guess my knee injury & subsequent hiatus from coaching came at a fortuitous time.

Okay - off to make some progress on the cowl before knitting class this afternoon. Check out Courtney's blog.

I'm Speechless.

Here's something to cheer us all up: GLEE's rendition of Madonna's Vogue video starring Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch). If you don't watch GLEE, you're missing something great!
