But I headed out to Knit Happens nonetheless. Neither rain nor sleet nor dark of night (or day) keeps me from yarn and good friends!
And jocularity did ensue.
Phyl-Phyl brought in her Amanda backpack in its pre-felted state.
Some of us thought it would make a spiffy body bag.
Phyl-Phyl then showed us a sweater knitted from Point Five that had been marinating in her knitting bag for quite a while.
In a word, yikes.
An angel of mercy (Erika!) appeared with a homemade sachertorte.
Phyl-Phyl and Shelley seem to have ingested too much sugar, as they got into a little spat.
In answer to a question, my Klaralund swatch did take less than two skeins — the back and the front (excuse me — the first two swatches) was just over three skeins. Looking forward to seeing how much the entire sweater takes.
I started a sleeve — er — third swatch.
Secret Pal III Fun!
I got something in the mail from my new Secret Pal!
A lovely letter, a postcard, a little booklet of sachets, and a recipe for Madeleines!
I do know just enough French to be able to follow the recipe. And would you believe I actually own a Madeleine pan? Left over from my gourment cooking days.
Thanks, Secret Pal!
Why would any one go out in the rain if she could sleep in the desk chair at home all day?
Back to work today. Sigh.
