So this was the look of my right arm when I was doing the knit thang - temporary tattoo gleefully provided by the lovely Gina at Alchemy Yarns.
And here is my right arm when hanging with my crochet pals - knitting tattoo covered by this terrycloth band from CrochetMe.com. How convenient that I had both goodies to play with, yes? I suppose if I had really wanted to make a statement I would have worn both at the same time...hmmm....food for thought.

Oh, you have a treat? Well, Okay, just this once. (the shame, I am so easy!)
Sweater is crocheted in Simply Soft Brites by Caron Yarns, and the pattern will be available soon. I added the purple crab sticth to the sides and back of the sweater after this photo was taken, so those of you who prefer symmetry have been appeased.
Back in the saddle again after recovering from TNNA and finishing a poo-load of projects.
Didja miss me?

The good news is the book signing went really well - thanks so much to all who attended, got books, and came back later to tell me that you loved it. I spent most of Sunday having Sally Fields moments - "They like me, they really like me!" The bad news is I came down with a wicked round of food poisoning on Saturday night, and am still, three days later, feeling kind of cruddy. (The secret good news is at least I lost five pounds, although I wouldn't recommend this diet to anyone).
The bad news is, when it was finally time to leave my flight was delayed by two hours. The good news is that I got to spend that waiting time with my dear buddy The Crochet Dude! He had been at TNNA for a book signing also - of the fabulous Men Who Knit and the Dogs Who Love Them which he wrote with Annie Modesitt.
