See what happens when I don’t post during the week…

meet Dory

Who graciously modeled her fancy schmancy sweater…

I was in Brunswick on Thursday, recruiting for summer field interns at Bowdoin, and thinking, gee if I had a cell phone, I’d call up Ohana (her Ravelry name, but does she ever do anything in there?) and say where are you I am here (she works there). And within 10 minutes, who walks by? So we got together, walked Dory, gabbed… I was glad to know I didn’t crush her back when I slammed a great bear hug into her at the job fair…

the river is still icy!

I have been making progress on DH’s sweater…

But I needed some antidote to all this white gray oatmeal blah, and something small I could work on at the job fair… and so,

And before I set up for the job fair, I visited Ellen at Purl Diva! And came home with some subtle color, Madeline Tosh sock yarn in the lichen color,

OMG it is so lovely. Ellen has a new shipment of all sorts of Madeline Tosh yarns…. they’re all wicked nice, squoooshy, soft, great colors, yum yum yum!

Maybe I’ll actually work on some socks soon…

    What a fun dog sweater! And talk about synchronicity, running into Ohana like that. :)

    I had a meeting in Brunswick a couple weeks ago and stopped in at Purl Diva. She was waiting for the Madeline Tosh delivery; the UPS guy showed up while I was there, but no Madeline Tosh :-( Lucky me – I have another meeting in Brunswick this coming Friday morning!
