Your accent is the lowest common denominator of American speech. Unless you're a SoCal surfer, no one thinks you have an accent. And really, you may not even be from the West at all, you could easily be from Florida or one of those big Southern cities like Dallas or Atlanta.
I completed my Swallowtail Shawl! I used about 270 yards of Knitpicks Gloss in burgundy. Size 7 Knitpicks Options needles. It took me one week to complete (a record for me). Size: about 64" x 38" I am sooooooo pleased with it. It's a beautiful pattern, and really not difficult.
Here's my Falling Water Lace Scarf in Knitpicks Shimmer. I was sorta hating it while I was working on it, because I didn't think the yarn worked too well with the pattern. But, thanks to the miracle of blocking, I am now quite pleased with it. I used US size 4 (knitpicks options) needles, and it took maybe 250 yards. Love it!
I immediately cast on for the Swallowtail Shawl (from Interweave Knits, Fall 2006). I'm using Knitpicks Gloss in Burgundy, and size 7 needles. So far I think it is lovely. I think I am really going to like this pattern. Here's my start:
I also finished a super cute Nautie for Lauren. I'll post pictures of that later.

If the laundry is 9 foot by 11 foot (just dreaming, that's a big laundry room), and the walls are 8 feet tall, and you are going to tile the entire room in tiles that are 3 inches by 5 inches, what color should those tiles be? That's a big laundry room! And tiles are pretty permanent. I'd go neutral personally - cream, or something kinda slatey looking.
