Jasmine Trust Holiday Silent Auction 2006

Jasmine Charitable Trust Holiday Silent Auction

The time is almost here for the auction and we're still scrambling to get ready. Juli was kind enough to get pictures of items and put together a blog so people can preview auction items. Patrice used her artistic skills to put together the flyer shown above. (It's supposed to be more purple and less blue... it looked right on her computer monitor!) There will be some last minute donations to the item list, so not everything will be listed beforehand, but we've got most of it. Patrice was working on a flyer design so we can get a little more publicity around campus. I only hope that word will get around, and those that attended last year's auction will bring some folks that didn't make it the first time around.

Since I finished the shawl, I have been able to devote a lot more time to my own projects, namely the Viking tank top. After much ripping out due to ignorant mistakes, starting over, reknitting, blocking, and binding off, I am now ready to sew the side seams and be done with it. I tried it on as well as I was able to last night and it seems like it will fit, though it's a bit longer than I imagined it would be. Not because I didn't do a gauge swatch, mind you! It's just the way the pattern was written to accomodate the design. We're due for some ridiculously warm weather for Wednedsay and Thursday (seasonally speaking), so I may try to wear it once for the hell of it while I still can. I don't want to have to wait until next summer to show it off.

I also decided that since I was almost done with the tank top, I might as well get cracking on one more Christmas gift. I have a feeling that I'm probably going to add one more project into the mix when I actually do finish the tank top. Just because. But it will have to be something easy... that cashmere gaiter I keep contemplating. I better get in all the knitting while I can because if all goes as planned, I'll be taking classes next semester at William & Mary. (On top of a full time job.) That means homework and study time -- bleh!!
