And I'm having such fun using my tvyarn to knit a tam! I'm knitting the Holiday Lights Tam from the Interweave Holiday 2007 issue. See the photo above. I dyed 3 colors in my sport weight: varigated red, varigated greens and varigated chartruse. This morning there was a drive-by yarn injury though. I was vacuuming and one of the yarn strands got caught in the beater! Luckily, it snapped off neatly without hurting the tam. I might be able to finish it this evening.
And then I'm going to take it along and wear it in Crested Butte Colorado! We booked a ski trip for early February and we're very excited. We needed to plan some high quality family fun time. Sometimes it seems like it's just work, homework, school activities, other obligations, and then more work. But this will be a nice break and something special.Now to decide what to bring along to knit during the trip. Hmm.. Today I ordered yarn for the Blue Sky Sunset Shawl so that might be a good no-think project for the trip. I'll surprise you with the colors I chose! I ordered from a new shop (for me) - Flying Fingers I found them when I was looking for a shop that carried the wonderful Tahki Donegal Tweed. Their shipping is only flat rate of $3.99. I ordered the tweed for the Tweed Beret from Interweave Knits Winter 2006. I'm lovin' hat knitting right now! (And my UFO sweaters can just take a rest)

I got my new Winter 2007 Interweave Knits and know I will knit at least two things from this issue: the Alicia Tabbard vest and the Logan River Wrap. Yarn for these two is already on its way here.
I wish I had more time to knit! I'm hoping to knit almost nonstop during the 4 day Thanksgiving weekend!
