New Bernat Jr. Jacquards

Today's mail brought my order of Bernat Jr. Jacquards in a new colorway called Grape Juice. It's white, with purple and pink. It's lovely and I'm itching to grab a Tunisian hook and start swatching! But it is 2 am, and I do need to get a little sleep. Tomorrow is the first tech rehearsal for the recital. I'm going to be getting the parent volunteers and the dancers "signed in". I may have some odds & ends jobs to do, also.
At tonight's "Crochet in Public" at Borders, I brought along the perfect project. I took the Royal Garden doily, the row I had started was double in each treble, and in each chain space. The next row was double in each double. I was able to chat with the ladies, look at the other projects in the works, answer questions, and still not mess up the project that I was stitching on. Bonus! I have about 7 rows left on the doily, then find a small pearl bead to sew on the center of the flower. This is a pretty doily, and easy,... except for that round 6!
