The picture does not do them justice. The yarn is some of the most beautiful I've ever seen and they are so soft and squishy. The pattern is very easy and knits up quick. I probably won't ever use it again, but I think it would be nice in a solid color, or maybe something that doesn't stripe.
So, back to Zoey. This is my last week with her. This weekend she goes to be with her family (and no, that is not a euphemism for anything!). Matt and Gretchen are going to come and take her to their new home, and I am more than a little sad about it. But not sad enough to keep her permanently. I think she will enjoy her new home. There will be lots of room to explore. Of course, I am sure she will miss sitting amongst my bras.
