Somewhere between trying to convince Logan that he doesn't need to go back outside and play in the snow (I think the only way to win that argument is shaving him bald), answering Caleb's phone calls* and pouring hot tea down my sore throat, I started Pettine. I'm actually far enough along that I'm ready to start weighing the remaining yarn. I know I'm not at the halfway point yet, but if I weigh early and often, I should be able to avoid overshooting the halfway point and having to frog. The pattern is easy and memorizable, just the thing for a project I can pick up and put down quickly. The yarn though, the yarn is wonderful! This is Dream in Color's Smooshy with Cashmere (Smooshy is their standard sock yarn, I believe) and this is the first time I've used it. It's so soft and squishy and almost melty in your hands - it's like buttah! Every few rows I just stop and squish it and stroke it - it's lovely. I don't know if I could bear walking on it in socks, but for shawlettes or mitts or hats or scarves, it would be amazing. Just, YUM! I will definitely be adding some of this to my stash for emergency purposes or maybe just for Tuesdays.

Have a great weekend! I should be starting the In Dreams project later this afternoon or evening when the first clue comes out, so I'll show you how that's going next week.

*Sometime over the last two weeks, Caleb became a teenage girl. All weekend the phone is ringing off the hook and he and his friends (sometimes in a 3 way conference call) are playing on the computer or on the PS3 together. With 4 days off of school this week, they've been talking all day long with only brief breaks for meals. We had to have a discussion about what call waiting was and how to use it because no one could get through. On the other hand, he's not walking around telling me how bored he is.

Melanie it sounds like you've caught whatever Caleb had. I'm sorry you've gotten sick and hope you're better soon. Pettine is lovely and the yarn sounds lusciouse. I received an email for the first In Dreams clue and plan to access it this evening. I sent color samples of the yarn off to the Beadwrangler to see if she could come up with some ideas for bead colors. Hopefully I'll hear from her next week. Sounds like you're living with a teenager. Good luck! I understand boys are easier than girls though. Again, get better and stay warm this weekend.

Oh boy now I really want to try that Smooshy with Cashmere! Pettine is coming along nicely :o) I'm waiting for my yarn to arrive for the In Dreams Shawl ... guess I'm gonna be behind.

Nin Jiom Pei Pa Koa (http://ninjiom-hk.cwahi.net/) may be another choice. i know alot of people use it, its also non alcoholic, though it's effectiveness is not as good as alcohol based cough medicine, but it's still good to use on not so serious sore throat.
