WIP

I bid adieu to my old dumb-phone and got a new iphone, which means it's too smart for my computer. So I've been taking a bloggy break while upgrading the RAM and the OS (twice). But now I need to download the newer photoshop and camera software! Arg arg arg. So I haven't been able to show you how little I have been knitting. Then I realized that my phone is smart and can take pictures and stuff, and no need to wait!

Here's the last present I am knitting this holiday season, a red iteration of my Bougainvillea Shawl/Scarf.


The yarn is a shiny and drapey blend that I got during my Cambridge-Boston yarn crawl. Love it, especially because the sheen is so bougainvillea-ey.

In other news, we've been busy repainting. The bright lime green has been muted down to a pale greenish grey. Perfect for cozy winter mornings! The mouldings need to go up now--like everything in this house, it's a work in progress...

LOVE Bouganvilla in red, love it! I'm getting my new iPhone next week to replace my dinosaur that should't be. Technology is a time suck! Knit on sister!
