In my efforts to use up stash, especially my cotton ease stash, I started on another tank. This one uses black (or in cotton ease terminology, licorice) on the bottom and minty green (pistachio) on the top. It's a pattern from the Mission Falls book "In Living Color"...I like Mag Kandis' patterns but not the yarn so much, so I'm glad I can finagle the gauge wtih cotton ease to knit some of the patterns.
I also bought some more licorice on eBay (hey, its discontinued!) to make a matching shrug, so this will be a four-season outfit here in Oregon.
My birthday was lovely..peaceful and calm. We had a delicious dinner at a local tapas restaurant, and played TriOminos (which I got for my birthday). Phone calls from friends and family made it a special day. Thanks again to all of you for your birthday wishes!
