sunshine on a rainy day


Pattern: Glee by Zephyr Style
Yarn: Blue Sky Alpaca, Alpaca Silk, approx. 6balls
Needles: Size 5 and 3 circs

Between the pain in the neck crap I had to deal with at work, the horrendous traffic I endured doing an errand for the beloved boyfriend and the torrental downpour I ran through because I forgot my umbrella I had this excited anticipation and calm because I was going to blog about Glee today.   It’s the little things that will calm you down when traffic is going 25mph on a major state highway.  Or when it takes you 45 minutes to get from point A to point B when normally it takes 10.   I even canceled a dinner tonight with an old friend because I though, "geeze, I wouldn’t even want to be in the same room as me right now."  But then I arrived home, all tired all dishelved and there she was just sitting on the couch waiting for me to photograph her.

This beautiful, simple, and so is going-to-be-worn-a-hundered-times top was a quick and satisfying knit.  The title of which is the emotion I am hoping to get to after several glasses of red wine and a foot massage.

Glee Ribbing


I cannot recommend enough this pattern.  It’s simple but oh so satisfying.  I have yet to buy and or sew on the hook and eyes.  I went this weekend to one craft store admid errands and all they had were black ones.  I am off tomorrow (The small perks of working at a Catholic HS: holy days) and will most defintiely be visiting some shops for them.

And in case you were wondering in suspense what I went ahead and did with dear Fifi. 

the beginnings of fifi

She and I had a nice heart to heart over some Veuve Cliquot.  We’re getting along famously now.

    Veuve Cliquot has a way of taking the pain of the day away, doesn’t it?
    Your Glee is so beautiful, I almost say to forgo the clasps and all that and wear it as is…and Fifi looks very promising!
    What holy day is it tomorrow?! (I’m a bad Whiskeypalian)…

    Congrats on Glee, and yay for starting Fifi (gorgeous color you chose, BTW)! Now- go drink some red wine- I know that’s what I’ll be doing tonight! 😉
