Last Friday I took my newly-completed Frogner to work to me to show to a couple of co-workers who saw it in progress.
While I was playing show-and-tell, another woman came in and saw it. She gasped in admiration. “You made that?! You could sell that!”
So just for fun I said “How much do think I could sell this for?”
She thought a minute and said “Sixty-five dollars!” Big smile on her face.
Non-knitters just don’t get it.
Bobble-Haters of the World Unite!
It was gratifiying to see so many bobble-haters check in yesterday in my comments. And thanks for your comments on my Fern yarn. I know, I know . . . I need to swatch to see how the Devon will look. And I do really need to swatch it because it’s a fairly soft yarn because of the silk content. But I’m thinking what a totally yummy sweater that would make.
I once knitted an aran out of 100% silk yarn. I bought this drop-dead gorgeous handpainted turquoise silk worsted weight yarn at the market at a TKGA convention ages ago. At the convention I had taken the class on knitting arans from the neck down that was given by Dixie Falls. (Any of you guys remember her? Is she still around?) On the plain going home, I started knitting my silk and designing my aran on the fly. I made a cute little short-sleeved top with cables and seed stitch and I wore it a heckuva lot. It looked dynamite under a plain black suit.
Hmmmmmm . . . where is that sweater?
Turned the heel. Ooh!
Received a whole bunch of adorable mousies from Mary in Brecksville, OH, Claudia in Woburn, MA, and Kay in Levittown, PA. Thank you so much!
Kay thoughtfully tucked a piece of tissue paper in with her mice for Lucy.
Here is a photo of Lucy lying on what remains of that tissue paper.
Lucy wants you to know that catnip-scented tissue paper is the best!
Wanna see something cool? My sock pattern translated into Japanese! Thanks, Orochi!
To all of you still affected by the black-out — I hope your power is back on soon!
