I haven't knit a stitch on my Must Have cardie since last weekend, but it's on the agenda for tonight. Bill's working, Bea's been fed, and this lady is going to watch TV and knit. You can click on the Must Have detail to see how both sleeves turned out:

You know about the British gardening club ladies who posed nude for a calendar to raise money, right? There's a similar group in Australia. They're so fabulous! It all started when a local hall needed new stage curtains, you see, and at a cost of about $5,000, the ladies figured that soup and sandwich luncheons just weren't going to cut it. So they got their kits off and made a calendar. Check out the gallery here; they clearly have good senses of humour. Why am I telling you about this? Well, because of these two particular shots: Knit one, purl one, drop one, OOPS! and Knit two together and cast off! Now, these are some sassy knitters. I'm certainly never going to look at "cast off" in a pattern the same way again. Hmm, anyone in for a knitbloggers calendar in the future? With strategically placed swatches?

Thanks so much for all your congratulations about my school news. Have a good Friday!
