Beatrice Progress

It's actually a bit further along than this, but the batteries in my camera died.

But these are the colors. I L.O.V.E. this pattern, by the way. So simple. At least it is so far. I probably shouldn't jinx myself. I'm just past halfway, thanks to 3 nights of American Idol.

What a horrible picture. I need a new camera. I paid a hundred bucks for this one a while ago, just because my other one broke. I probably should have spent a bit more. But then I would have less money for coffee. And that would suck.

Today's plan is to work on the shrug for a while. Then clean. Then sand some walls. Then make dinner. Then go out for coffee. Without kids.

Sounds like a pretty good plan, especially the coffee part. Michele sent me.

Is it just me, or are these comments all in the wrong order?

I think they're in the wrong order. I saw you on Micheles.

I love coffee, I love crochet, and I love Taylor. I think there's a poem there somewhere.

The shrug is looking good! What type of yarn are you using? I want to stash bust to make this shrug and am curious if you are using the "proper" yarn?

Btw, glad your hubby is feeling better!!

Y'know, this week I've been fighting the flu. When I finally returned to work one of my staff said to me, "How r u feeling?"

"Not great," I replied and as I reached for my coffe she said, "Oh my gosh, well then don't drink coffee... it will make you more sick."


Michele sent me, but I love your blog... and I love coffee, too.

Charles! You have triplets! I'M a triplet! How cool. I'm definately going to bookmark you!

Shecrochets, I never use the proper yarn, lol. Usually because I am too cheap. I'm pretty sure this shrug will be smaller than the pattern says, but that's OK since I have 2 girls of different sizes. We'll see which one it fits best, lol.

Stitches, I was just surfing your blog today. How weird.

Tara- Thanks for the comment on my squares. I'm beginning to hate making 12" squares. They always end up either11" or 13". Anyway, after I saw your blogs' name I had to go make a pot o' coffee. ;) I love coffee. (Especially without kids! I really could use the 'without kids'.) And yes, I think the comments are in the wrong order. Nice blog, and I still love that sweater you made your daughter. (Haven't made one yet though myself...) :)

I'm glad your hubby is doing better and your back to posting. I've missed reading you even though I only found you a few weeks ago. hehe

I to like your colors a whole lot better than the ones in the pattern. I was a bit worried about your sanity when you said you were making the shrug.

I didn't know you were a triplet! I saw that picture of the three of you, but I thought you were just close in age!

I don't have triplets, but I do have twins. But they had good friends a few houses down who were triplets.

Multiple births rule. :)
