It was 40 degrees this morning - I think I'll work on a summer tank.

Before my wreck in August, I had started Deciduous by Marnie Maclean (sorry for no links - too lazy right now). I put it down while I was in a cast/brace/splint because I didn't want my gauge to be different. Then, post cast/brace/splint, I started an Hourglass Pullover because I thought that something really simple like stockinette stitch in the round would be perfect for the state of mind I was in and the way my hand was working/not working. I got all the way up to the armpits of the body by last Saturday and wanted to start a sleeve, but I didn't have a 16" size 5 circular. So I picked up Deciduous again and have been working a lot on it in an attempt to get it done MAYBE by tomorrow evening. Here's a shot of my progress as of last night (and my bathroom that Mike painted while I was in Destin the last weekend of August - I was really shocked at first and didn't know if I liked the stripes, but they grew on me):

As of tonight, I have 13 rows left of the body, the straps, and the back stuff. I'm hoping that it'll be warm enough in Florida when I'm there for Ironman (3 weeks from today - yippee!) so that I can wear it at least once before next summer. It SURE isn't going to be worn around here anytime soon; this morning I wore shorts, tights, 2 pairs of socks, a short sleeved shirt, a long sleeved bike jersey, a jacket, gloves, and a skullcap under my helmet for an 80-mile ride.

And here's a picture of the Cutest 6-Year Old in America, just in case you've forgotten what he looks like:

And for your amusement, here's a picture of the page of homework he was holding:

Take a look at the first question. I think there are 2 correct spellings.

You are a dirty, dirty, dirty girl.

And a lucky one too, check out that crazy bathroom!--even if you weren't sure it was your taste, I can feel the love from all the way from here.

That cami's going to look hot on you, make sure he gets a back shot.

Good luck in FL!

I'm glad I wasn't taking a sip of my coffee! I would've spit it all over my computer! A good editor is gold baby! Gold! That cami looks great!! Good luck on your Iron Man!!!
