From chugging around the knitting bloggers ring, I noticed more than one person mentioning that they have the blahs, so at least I’m in good company.
But I did get a nice surprise in the mail yesterday:
A lovely ball of Opal from Lisa K. Thank you Lisa!
Here’s something else in an attempt to spice things up:
A red wyvern!
I bought the kit in Wales, not surprisingly, if you can make out the word around the perimeter of the piece: Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwyllllantysiliogogogoch. That translates into “The church of St. Mary in the hollow of white hazel trees near the rapid whirlpool by St. Tysilio’s of the red cave.” For the uninitiated, that’s the name of a town in Wales that boasts of having the longest place name in Britain.
Sorry for the lousy photo quality — I might have been over-zealous in my file compression.
Yes, I’ve been to Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwyllllantysiliogogogoch.
Lucy doesn’t care.
You should know that I’m currently getting more than 50 knitting-related emails a day. Yesterday I got 67. These are for the most part from people I don’t know, asking for help, advice, or free copies of patterns. Most of the questions can be answered by reading my FAQs, or simply by reading recent blog entries.
If I took the time to answer every message I get, I wouldn’t have time to knit.
