Update Wednesday!!

The house of Andrea has been a little quiet (yeah right). I can't wait till the weekend. Do you ever have one of those weeks where it seems like it will never end and you're just plain old tired? I didn't even want to get out of bed this morning. Anyway, I'm almost done the jacket portion of my VS knock off. I got a little side tracked week before last. I started to get this nasty sore throat which turned into a nasty sinus cold. Hence, sewing was at a dead end and Mucinex DM was my best friend. If you haven't tried it because of need, that's great. If there is a need for it in the future, stock up on it.

In knitting news, I finished the 17 inches I needed done on Cobblestone, and have since started working on the sleeves which are also almost done. I have this phobia of doing one sleeve at a time, so when I can, I always do my sleeves, and socks at the same time. Since Cobblestone is done in the round, sleeves included. I used this method that I learned a few years ago. I had taken a class on how to knit one sock in the round. After finishing the class, I was freaked out that I still had to make one more sock. I found Sheron's method, and never turned back. It makes things much easier, and I don't have to worry about whether both sleeves, or socks are the same length. Sorry I don't have any pictures right now, but I'm hoping to have some up by the weekend.

I know in my last post I said I'd wait till I finish what I have on the needles now, but I sometimes hang out in Rosie's during my lunch hour. Kate designed the lovely Selbu Modern. When I found out that she finally had the pattern up, I had to make it.

I'm making mine in pink and brown. The main color is pink.

I also started back on the Twilight Series. Thank you Robin. You are the best. CD's are my best friend now and I got the last one in the mail yesterday. That's it for now, I hope you all have a lovely rest of the week.

Hope you feel better, my dear. Mike has the same cold I think -- were you kissing him?! Just kidding! Ha ha.

Can't wait to see your Cobblestone or hat. I love pink and brown! xo

I saw that hat before and thought it was hot! Your color choices sound like my style, too.

Can't wait to see the sewing, too.
