My birthday is Feb. 11th. I am an Aquarian.

I have frogged the stupid clapotis for the last time. I am going to make a flower basket shawl instead. I have to make it out of acrylic as the person I am making it for is allergic to wool. No blocking.....oh well. I am sick, sick I say of my CPH. I must finish it. Every time I check out the "knit the Central Park Hoodie with us" blog I am jealous of those who have finished. I am 3/4 done with the sleeves and the front and back are all seamed and the shoulder and blocked. But so am I. UGH! Oh well. some day it will be my oldest UFO.
More Later.
