Wanna see what you gave me for my birthday?
I went to Knit Happens this evening and shopped with my birthday gift certificate. Thank you!!
I bought a whole mess o’ Koigu Kersti in purple (yum!) and three skeins of Artyarns Royal Silk (double yum!).
I sucked it up and finished the second sleeve of the Lucy top. Sewing together and neckband knitting will ensue shortly.
And I started a scarf using my handspun wool — this in a lighter grey than the hat I made.
And soon I will start a sweater using my handspun Corriedale. It’s going to be a very plain design, based on the the pattern for the pullover that’s in the book Last Minute Knitted Gifts.
Lucy, You Got Some ‘Splaining To Do . . .
Lucy is obsessed with iPod earphones. When I first got Irving, Lucy removed the little foam covers from the earphones, then obligingly brought the earphones to me. I put the spare covers on the earphones and attempted to keep them away from Lucy, but no matter where I hide them, she finds them.
I quickly figured out that the iPod earphones were just too danged big for my ears. (What’s up with that, anyway? Do those things fit anyone? Everybody I have talked to reports the same experience.) Last weekend I bought some Koss earphones that are okay, and more stable as they have the over-the-ear hooks. Last night Lucy brought those earphones to me after I had gone to bed. She had gone into my briefcase and pulled them out. I got up, put them back, this time tucking them securely in a side pocket.
This morning when I was getting ready for work, Lucy came into the bedroom and dropped one of the little foam covers from the Koss earphones on my bed. Yep, she had gone into my briefcase again and removed a foam cover — without disturbing the earphones. And happily brought it to me.
Maybe she wants her own iPod?
She looks so innocent . . .
I’ve ordered yet another set of earphones based on reviews I’ve read. When they arrive, you can be darn sure they will be kept under lock and key.
