Ah, Saturday morning posts.

I really love being up early on a Saturday morning with coffee & NPR on in the background.

Thanks for all the ideas for names for my Wee one! There were all so great it was hard to choose. I finally decided on "Speck" (short for spectrum) courtesy of Coleen. Oh & Jennie it's not all that "wee", actually the height with ears included is 10 inches.

YAY!! Isaac just walked in with the mail & what did I receive but my postcard from Maryse for the project spectrum postcard swap.



Look at those crocheted flowers! They are so lovely! It's like a little piece of art!! I need to find a place to hang it! Thank you so much Maryse! It's been great fun swapping with you!

If any of you are wondering what I sent Maryse, well I forgot to take a picture of it but, it can be seen here on Maryse's blog.

I didn't get much opportunity to knit this week so I don't have any progress shots. I've decided that Cherie probably won't be finished til' the fall. Just because it's one of those really functional knits. It's slow on size 5's & 6's and I'm constantly distracted by all the new, interesting knits out there. I am determined to finish it though! Even if it's during the hottest part of the summer!

In better knitting news my elfine's will be done any day now! After that I'm taking a break from socks and jumping into birthday knitting for my sister and my friend Kim. I'm undecided on Kim's gift yet but my sister has requested a, get this, Accidentally on Purpose vest. EEK! Talk about boring knitting! Oh well, it's for my sister so I guess I can go through all the stockinette stitch again. *sigh*

Bryony was kind enough to point out that I am one of the last knit bloggers in the world to have not done this meme so, here it is.

4 jobs I've had:
1. Dog walker at a pet resort. Upside it was fun to be around animals all day. Downside? Poop & getting bitten 3 times in one summer!
2. Runner/bartender. This was a great job. I worked at one of the most popular bars inJacksonvillee & got to hang out with some of my favorite bands. The highlights? Meeting Mike Ness, They might be giants, De la Soul & thedead milkmenn. The lowpoint- dealing with blink 182. UGH!
3. Preschool teacher- I think that says it all!
4. Barista- at this job it was clearly more about how short our uniforms were than how good the coffee was.

Yeah for Speck!!!

Wow, my first meme tag! I feel so special! I will work on that later today!
 
Yay for Miyazaki :D And for sexy men on Lost. And for crafty things. Just yay! Thanks for doing the meme, petal :D It is always interesting to read what other people have been up to :)
 
i'm glad you liked it. it's kind of funny seeing it posted.
 
Speck is adorable! ;)
You and Maryse had a very successful swap - both of your cards turned out so well! Thanks for being a part of this, Leah!
 
Wow, that is a great card! Speck sounds like a great bunny name.
 
those crochet flowers are beautiful! i'm itching to crochet again -- must be spring.
 
Maryse's postcard is amazing, as is the one you sent to her! Such a beautiful project! (oh, and I finished the meme, thanks for the tag!)
 
I love Spirited Away! Did you see Howl's Moving Castle?? It's another great one from Miyazaki. Billy Crystal is even in it as a little fire named Calcifer :) (luckily he's more like Miracle Max than Mr. Saturday Night).
