Both Sssydney and XL Coffee Cup Sweater are my freebies on Ravelry.

The usual installment of found on Ravelry: Milly by Vanessa Ewing  would look rather nice over a tank top.

and I came across this rather good Crochet Tutorial for Mile a Minute Afghans. I am going to start linking anything I find that might interest you… Look under Techniques and Video Tutorials :0)

Current Book: Badger’s Moon by Peter Tremayne

The Sister Fidelma stories are set in the middle of the 7th century, mainly in Ireland. She is a Celtic religieuse, a legally recognized lawyer and sometimes Judge. So far I am really enjoying it. There is an interesting and informative introduction which explains the Celtic legal codes of the time.

    Wonderful projects and I’m so glad I’m not the only one that has a few going on at once. One must have variety :). Your friend wouldn’t by chance be Bonnie, a.k.a. Bonnyalma on Ravelry would it ? If yes, tell her hello! Enjoy your time 🙂

    Busy celebration time! Love the sweater and adore the snakes.

    I was just thinking I should knit some coffee cozies for gifts. They are a perfect stashbuster.
