the wheels on the bus go round and round....

Inspired by this post awhile ago (who am I kidding, I am always inspired by Kelli), I decided to start taking the bus at least once a week. It probably more than doubles my commute time, but it's been pretty fun. I take my knitting with me, and it's fairly productive. Look what I got done today on the ride there and back!!

Please ignore the fuzziness. I don't like flash, and well, it was dark by the time I get back. That's almost a whole square for this blanket! I'm so excited. Can't wait to see how much I get done tomorrow.

And I won a contest on Joanna's blog, and she sent me this! It's gorgeous, right? Thanks Jo!

And reversible too! Who doesn't love reversible things?
Some gorgeous laminated cotton...

And here is the little bit of sewing I've done recently...
