Pattern: Fall 2004 Knitty
Designer: Véronik Avery
Yarn: 11 balls of Peruvian Highland wool in Victorian Violet
No problems for me while knitting, except for some dang reason, I always have such a rotten time sewing on the second sleeve. The first sleeve [doesn't matter what pattern, what yarn, etc...] is always the easiest for me to sew on. Am I weird, or what?
It's so lovely. I wore it this morning to walk my dog!
Thanks to Beth, Peggy and Samantha for letting me know the correct pronunciation for boucle. It is boo-clay. I have never said this word out loud. Mainly because I've only used boucle once before, years ago, to make my youngest sister a sweater. Hence, never needing to say the word. But, when reading posts on online knitting forums, this word is bandied about, here and there...and I'll have to admit, I was doing what Curlie Girl suggested and I quote, "and the boucle (no idea how to pronounce it, other that start saying Bou...and then brush hand over mouth to stifle pronounciation." [big cheeky grin] Hey, it worked for in my head!
Thank you Carol for the tip on using embroidery floss when the time comes to seam together the Yo-Yo pullover. I'll give it a shot.
As you may all know, I have a couple of orchids and several other plants I like to baby. They all do amazingly well, considering I really don't do much in the way of care, except remembering to water them when I see them start to shrivel up. [I'm serious] So, I was so excited to see my baby Hoya producing buds for the first time since I bought it. It's three years old now and has the prettiest cluster of blooms.

I'm a proud plant momma!
Have a great weekend.
Keep On Knitting...
