Happy Monday to all. Or not. Your call.
Questions From the Comments!
Marta asked about Spongebob. For those of you outside the U.S. who don’t know who Spongebob is . . .
Spongebob Squarepants is a cartoon shown on the Nickelodeon network. Ostensibly for children, but there’s something oddly compelling about the little guy. The cartoons are silly, quirky, and filled with contradictions.
There’s a Spongebob movie opening here in November. I am SO there!
But there’s something we’ve been wondering: Do you think Sandy Cheeks considers Spongebob to be spongeworthy?
Angie in E. TX (Angie, have you ever been to Timson?) asks:
I have never even seen that AS Campion. Is it vintage? If so, are there any yarn companies making anything remotely similar now? Tell tell tell!
The short story is that Scottish Campion is the same yarn as Jamieson’s Shetland Spindrift. There are some colors that you can’t get anymore, though. But whenever I see shetland wool, my eyes glaze over and I get a little giddy. I do have a smidgen of Scottish blood running through my veins — that’s my excuse!
As a beginning knitter becoming more and more overwhelmed with my stash, how do you budget your fiber purchases? Do you at all?
What’s a budget? Seriously, I have absolutely no self-control AT ALL. Clothes and yarn, yarn and clothes. That’s what it’s all about.
Okay, Lucy is bored.
She wants me to talk about my WIPs.
I got both the front and back of Lisa done.
No the front and back really are the same length. Honest. The front is just smooshed up a bit. Good thing I’m not a stylist for a photographer, eh?
And I started on a sleeve of the shrug. Kinda hard to figure it out from this photo!
But I’m coming down the home stretch. It’ll be completed at some point this week. Yay!
So there you have it.
