They call her Morgan

Today we drove around the country roads in this little thing. How cute is she? I say we but it was really Frost who drove her.

I also managed to finish my Mary Ella bracelet. I have forgotten my flickr id and password so I can't load up photos into ravelry until we are back home-bollocks

Time line:
Beads were strung onto the yarn January 23rd, 2008
Casted On: January 24th, 2008
Bound Off: February 3rd, 2008

Needles: 1.25mm
Yarn: King Cable Due
Beads: European Seed Beads, from Arton Beads
Mods: Row 7 of pattern called for a yo and a k2together. I omitted this from the bracelet as it was too hard to do with such small needles and thicker yarn. I also had to use a 2.25mm dpn to bound off as i couldn't get the first stitch to jump over the next one.

I still have the crochet edge to do, in order to finish baby Mina's blanket, however instead of doing that I have started the Woodland shawl. One needs at least two wip's on the go at any one time. I am not sure of the colours in the Ruby Sapphire Yarn I am using, so may not get very far with the project. As well since I don't have a bloody clue as to what SKP means, I am in a bit of a pickle at only row 3. SKP Anyone? Anyone?

EDIT: No worries found it on my own SKP slip, knit, pass: slip one stitch, knit the next stitch, pass the slipped stitch over the knit one-Hurrah!

Hope you're having fun.

Today was 10 degrees. Not much sun as it's sprinkled a bit this afternoon but much better than the snow storm we left in.

Miss you too!

Here's some Doctor Who silliness, sadly lacking that hunky David Tennant, but still fun:
