A Little Knitting and My Sister's Commercial

Hey everybody,

I just got a call from my dad saying that my sister Stephanie was just named a finalist in the Sheetz Coffee Poetry contest.  If y'all don't have a Sheetz near you, first let me say that I am sorry.  Sheetz is the Shangri-La version of a gas station: great music while you are pumping gas, you can order food at a touch screen menu while you are pumping gas, and you can order a variety of great food including one of the best Big Salads ever.  Anyway, they put out a call for videos of people sharing their Sheetz coffee-inspired poetry.  Steph entry is below.  Starting on July 11th you can go to here to vote for Steph's video.  Please vote for my sis - she is clever and funny and I know one day I can convince her to knit.

Before I show the video, I should show you some knitting.  I made Elephante and the Super Quick Baby Socks for a co-worker who is having a baby at the end of this month.
Here's the video!  Thanks guys for the vote!  Hopefully next month I can show you Stephanie posing in the Perfect Periwinkle Turtleneck Tube Vest (Ravelry link) that I knit for her 21st  birthday on the 20th.

Forgot to post...Back to School Vest

Hey y'all - I forgot to post my latest FO on here. Can't forget my Ebony Sistahs. lol. This project took under a month, including the time I took to work on my Orangina. The only modifications I made to the Back to School U Neck Vest was to lengthen the body and narrow the straps. I'm very happy with how it turned out. This is my third project from Stefani Japel's Fitted Knits book and I'm sure it will not be the last! Feel free to check out the details on my blog.
