All but the buttons.

Here is my Jo Jo Striped Pullover, prior to washing/drying/blocking:

He's all blocked now, and awaiting appropriate buttons. I haven't been well so I haven't had the energy to go to the button store (it's a fabric store, but for me, it's all about the buttons!).

So did I get back to my pink baby cardi in progress? Well, no, because I spilled bright red herbal tea on it the other night (oops). I gave it a soak in cold water, and I think the tea came out, but it'll take a few days to fully dry. Here it is drying, though:

Did I, then, get back to my tan cabled cardi that has been so patiently awaiting completion? Why, no. I was naughty and cast on for my Tahki Bunny Print jacket!

Tahki Bunny Print: soft. bulky. and oh so fun to say out loud. It has great rhythm. I'm driving my husband nuts muttering it under my breath.

Nothing like a fast bulky knit to make you feel a sense of accomplishment. I bet I finish this in under three weeks, AND get the pink cardi done. So there.

I like the Bunny Print - such soft, warm colors. Makes me think warm fuzzy.
