Lotsa Links and a Blocked Jammie

Something for Kevin's blog. Apparently, the Olive Garden and Coca-Cola have teamed up to encourage customers to just say no to H2O. They've called the campaign H2No. This story was on Coke's website, but they took it down after a few weeks, but not before Stayfree Magazine mirrored it on their site. Here's the link from the Growers and Grocers blog on the Well-Fed Network (via the Accidental Hedonist).

Growers and Grocers is part of The Well-Fed Network, a group of food-related blogs that just started up. They cover everything from the politics of food to the food on your table.
On the knitting front, Jammie is all blocked and ready to be sewn together. If it's cold enough on Saturday I'll be wearing it to work.

Now that Jammie's all knit I've started a new project.
It's the Yoga Wrap from the new Vogue Knitting, designed by Adrienne Vittadini. It's knit sideways. It's on 10s so it's going pretty quickly. I'm substituting Uruguay Chunky for the yarn and I have to tell you I love the way it's knitting up. It's soft and silky to the touch and just slides over the needles. Here's a closeup of the lace pattern:

The decreases are all in the same place every row, and the yarn overs travel one for a five-row repeat. It's an easy pattern to remember. The lace will show better once it's blocked.

Yay Coke and Olive Garden! Down with stupid water-it thinks it's so cool.
Oh, wait, I think I misunderstood.
