Today, December 13, is St. Lucia Day. Long-time Wendyknits readers may remember this story.
Yes, I’m hauling out old blog entries and offering them up again. To all you ScandiHOOvians (to quote Share) out there, Happy St. Lucia Day!
We Are Amused
So said Lucy. She is pleased that you all noticed how nicely the
cat blanket shawl complements her coloring. So much so that she consented to pose for another photo.
What we will not show is the brief but ugly power struggle that ensued. I won, and the shawl is now hanging over the back of my desk chair at work.
Lucy is not nearly as amused now.
Not too much knitting tonight. Baking scones for the office party tomorrow, dontcha know.
I did, however, spin up some yummy Coopworth roving. It drafts and spins like a dream. As easy as pie.
Pronounced, of course, as Eric Cartman would: “Paaaaaaaaaaah.”
Margene asked, about my Koigu Kersti:
Are you knitting with two skeins at a time?
Um . . . er . . .um . . . no I’m not. *blush, blush* Busted!
I’m throwing caution to the wind. And so far, so good. More than I deserve.
That shawl design looks like a wonderful solution for showcasing a few different sorts of handspun yarn together. Did the gauge match exactly between the different yarns?
Pretty darn close in gauge, I’d say. No appreciable difference.
From L-B, chocolate penguins!
I adore penguins.
