Okay, so I went to my LYS to get a birthday present for my Mother,
who is finally, after all these years,
and she wants to try felting.
So I got her the new little Vogue
Knitting book with the rainbow tea cozy on the cover.
Then I started talking to MaryAnn
about another Rescue Poodle (his name is Romeo....)
and what did I spy out of the corner of my little eye
but THREE balls of lovely celery green
I was gonna bring it to Sheep and Wool, the perfect
lightweight project, and I thought I might get some input from
some of the Amazing Lace Knitters who will be in attendance...
so I cast on, just to SEE
whether I liked the mohair....
before I knew it,
There's something about the structure of this pattern
that makes perfect sense to my hand/brain connection,
and the Kid Silk Haze...yumsters!
Isn't it funny?
My Mother wants to knit the hippest felted purse
and I'm making a mohair SHAWL....
To practice, for when my spinning gets fine enough
to make my own Pi.
Tomorrow night is the launch party for TIGER at my local Apple store, and I am supposed to be
at a charity Art Auction where one of my paintings will be on the block.
What's a geek to DO?
Off to see the Boybird this afternoon, hope your day is scrumptious!
