It's like 6-in-1

Ever since I saw the Ribby Cardi on the ChicKnits website, I couldn't wait for the pattern to become available. When Bonnie Marie did put it up for sale it sort of coincided with Elann getting more Peruvian Highland Wool in stock. Coincidence? I think not. Anyway, this pattern is such a deal for $4.95. First, you can virtually make 6 different sweaters (plain front, ribbed front, rolled neck, crewneck, and mock neck options). Also, the Peruvian Highland wool is only $2.25 a ball! So an entire sweater is no more than $40. This first one I am making is similar in colors to the prototype--blue with brown. I think it is very "Martha Stewart". I'll try to get some pictures tonight. This weekend was just too eventful....

So our heat is fixed, but not after a slight fiasco. The original guy we had fixing it got the part he needed, installed it, got paid, left, and the heat still didn't work. We woke up on Saturday to about 60 degree weather in the house. Um, that's not right. So we called another company who promptly charged extra for the weekend, but this time it is fixed. The sound of the furnace kicking on it so wonderful...

Yoda is one year old!! What a big girl! She received the gift of heat for her birthday!! We were so busy dealing with the furnace, there had been no time to get her presents. She'll get them, and I doubt she'll know the difference.

Hope everyone's week go wonderfully!
