      You've got to love the bribe fore the before school modeling sessions. Luckily I can still get by with a slice or bread or the gummy bear vitamin.

      This sweater is pretty wonderful, by the way.

      I started bribing with potty training and haven't stopped since. So far it's worked out pretty well for me. He's a good kid.

      This cardigan is so awesome, I cannot even express how much I love it. It's like Mr. Rogers meets Carrot Top. (See, I can't even admire it without using weird similes!)

      I'd love directions on how you did the hood, since it looks really great (not too pointy!), hint hint! ;)

      For the hood I picked up an odd number of stitches at the neck and worked in stockinette until it was about 2-3" less than my desired height. On each of the next 5 or 6 right side rows, I did a slip1, k2tog, PSSO with the center three stitches. This eliminates the point and gives a nice little curve to the back of the hood. Once I was done with my decreases I did a three needle bind off to join the two sides. Grafting would work just as well.

      It's coming, it's coming! I've got to get a few other commitments out of the way first.

      I'd love to go out for coffee!
      Let me know what your schedule is like. The kiddos get out of school next week so things open up for me then.
