She looks so calm, doesn’t she? Hard to believe she went nuts a few minutes later, racing around the livingroom and meowing at the top of her voice. A condition I refer to as “Thunder Kitty.”
There was a spider on the ceiling. We had to exterminate it to make Miss Izzy happy.
So . . . the Knitting Meetup in the DC area, which will take place Wednesday night, is being held at a venue downtown. so I shall not be attending. When you work downtown and leave the office before 4pm, it’s not really feasible to attend an event downtown that starts at 8pm. On a weeknight. What would I do? Come home, then go back in again? Stay the extra four hours at work? Call me cranky, but I’m too old for that. Oh well, they’ll have to struggle along without me.
Got my Knitters in the mail over the weekend. All I can say is:
The first hint was that there is a scarf on the cover. Nothing special– just a scarf with a pocket in it.
What a lot of uninspiring designs! There was one that was interesting and worthy, the Egyptian Collar, but it’s not anything I would ever knit. Just not my thing.
I remember the good old days, when there was stuff I was dying to knit in Knitters. Now I’m just dying for my subscription to run out.
Just my oh-so-humble opinion.
And last but not least . . .
Old Knitted Cr– . . . er . . . Stuff
Another gem from the Debbie Bliss Traditional Sweaters book.
I love this sweater — it’s why I bought the book. I remember I mail ordered the J&S shetland for it using money from an insipid little bonus I got at work.
I really love the ribbing!
How cool is that?!
