2007 Calendar already?

I just finished the last pattern for the 2007 Knitting Pattern a Day Calendar. It seems surreal, after all, 2006 just started. But there it is, for Paulette to get her work done, she needs the patterns now. So, I submitted 4 patterns for next year. I think these patterns are much better than my last year's submissions. My digital picture taking skills have hopefully improved! This last one, trying to take a variegated blues and green has just about driven me around the bend! The blues have a tendency to disappear into melange of non-descript stitches, or turn into a shout-out of stitches with a resemblance of an old bruise... you know with that yellowy tendency?

I was so tickled, Nathan proudly presented me with the 2006 calendar! He gets it! That is such a delight. He was a little baffled when I told him that I had 2 patterns in the calendar, and that we'd been searching for the calendar for Serena. But, he was trying to get a present tailored specifically for my tastes! I'm thrilled! Note to self, be sure he knows!

Backtracking a bit here--life without lupus bracelet? Wave your arm with some orange on it and it goes away? How do I get in on that one (and fast)?

Best wishes to all, and those wrist warmers and scarf look wonderful. I'm about to go spend some January time outside of California for the first time in 18 years, and it occurs to me that I do not own a hat. But I do own scarves, and even some wristwarmers: a dear knitting friend made me a pair. Knitters are wonderful people, you know?

Tried posting to you the other day. Don't have your email to contact you. I found a way for you to be able to just post the graphic WIP inside your blog posting.

As you saw I was able to redesign the Indigirls progress tracker into CSS. I posted an example on my site and also one inside a blogger site I own. http://swatchnot.blogspot.com.

Check it out and let me know if this is what you were thinking of.

I will help in any way I can :)

Alison, I wish that waving an arm with a lupus bracelet, or wearing one would help. It is a fund raiser for the Lupus Foundation. Serena bought a bunch for all of us to wear. Should I send you one too? grin

How come my local group didn't hear about that one? Thank you, I'll go check it out and see if we can all go up their funds a bit (and thank you for the offer, you're wonderful!)
