  1. Love love love how the Log Cabin blanket is coming out! Cannot wait to see your progress. Pretty yarn for the Traveling Woman shawl, can't wait to see that one blocked!

    I agree with you on the pics of each of the bases in the various color ways would be helpful. That's why I've been holding off on using my sock club coupon! I love the color you chose and the base, but I see what you mean on not getting what you had expected.

    Have a wonderful vacation!

  2. I don't think the Dr Who idea is geeky at all. It's more like pretty cool!

    p.s if you like Dr Who & Robin Hood then perhaps you should try the Beebs series of Merlin (2 so far) and the brand new one by Steven Moffat of Sherlock Holmes which started in the UK last Sunday - it's brilliant!

  3. The log cabin blanket looks great!

    I agree with Peri on the Merlin series, love it!
