In the I-Get-by-with-a-Little-Help-from-my-Friends Department, I would like to thank Jewel for all her recent behind-the-scenes work in designing the new Ideaphoria banner and button. I've been blogging on Ideaphoria for a year as of this month, and I've been wanting something spiffier than the oh-so-plain-but-functional banner I had previously. A kindred spirit in her devotion to Kidsilk Haze, Jewel collaborated with me and made it happen -- so, a BIG THANK YOU!

Knitting-wise: A few rounds more, and I'll have completed Friday Harbor sock #1. The knit-along deadline is Sept. 30, at which point we'll move along to another pattern from Knitting on the Road. I may not get the pair finished by Sept. 30, but I got a late start, having just discovered the knit-along, and I will complete the pair as quickly as I'm able. (At 50 sts per round, these are a quick knit, remember?)

I've also been trying to build momentum for Level II by getting 2 rounds done each day on my vest. And I'm working on the Wrapped in Tradition poncho whenever I need a change of pace (I'm on point 14 of the 20 points required for the lower lace edging).

An entry that's not about me?!?!?!

Love the new banner! It's much more visually striking!

Dear DD#1 -- Don't you have your *own* blog?! And by the way, you're welcome that I deleted the photo that you objected to.
Love, Mom

Diana: The colors combinations, the lettering, everything about the banner gives you so much more to look at -- didn't Jewel do an awesome job?

Ditto what Diana said. In fact, I think I'm a mite jealous!
