Oh, Pam, your sweet tea with lemonade sounds wonderful. Will have to try it. But, first, need to find a better tea. I have used Lipton in the past, but it seems to "turn" so quickly. Do like Red Rose, but it is hard to find here in Pendleton.
Having a warmer day here today -says 73 right now but there is a slight breeze. Got out this morning, but am going to sit and knit for a while - and fix a glass of ice tea. barb
Thank you for your kind words on my spark page (and blog, though I'll probably respond specifically to that later). Mostly I do alright... but I definitely have my bad moments and bouncing back into the 200's (I had briefly dropped down to 198) was disheartening, to say the least. I'm not giving up, but it does feel sometimes like I'm pretending somehow to be something that I'm not.
I have never joined the stash buster challenge because I am a very slow knitter--the projects I have on the needles (I have 4 technically, but one of them I'm stuck on) I have been working on for... a very long time. Two I have been working on for probably a couple of years; the third I think I started a little over a year ago. The one I'm stuck on is probably a good 5 years old (sweater with cables and I think I messed up the shoulder decreases but it's hard to tell what is going on--it could just be looking wonky because it's the mirror of the other side). I have multiple projects because I have an "I'm at home and can concentrate" project, an "It fits in my basket and can travel with me project" and the shawl because... well, it's the "I finally got the yarn to make it, dang it," project. LOL. So I find the idea of the stash buster challenge daunting, to say the least. Especially since I'm pretty sure I'm not allowed to work on something already started.
