Whenever Lucy lies like that, it cracks me up.
And she does. A lot.
There’s something about her little furry legs that amuses the hell out of me. But I try not to laugh at her because she gets insulted when I do.
Sally A asked if I’ve worked on my log cabin blanket lately. I have not, because a while back I used up all my sock yarn leftovers. I set the blanket aside until I had built up my stash of leftovers. I like to have a little bit of choice when adding a new color. Heaven forbid I should use two green colorways in a row.
But I will return to it — eventually.
I’ve got so many projects waiting in the wings. I have 2 skeins of Sea Silk in the Nova Scotia colorway (you didn’t really think I stopped at one colorway, did you?) that at this point in time is slated to be used for Sivia Harding’s gorgeous Diamond Fantasy Shawl.
I got my pattern in the mail yesterday.
I got something else in the mail yesterday that’s gonna make you soooooo jealous . . .
That is 1320 yards of sportweight Cormo, handpainted by the very talented Carol of Black Bunny Fibers.
Why, yes, I did wind one skein into a ball. It’s Cormo, for gosh sakes! I haven’t swatched yet, but I’m sure I will in the next , oh, 20 minutes or so. I haven’t decided exactly what to do with it yet. I’ve got a couple of nebulous ideas. What do you all think?
I’d show you a picture of the Fir Cone Wrap, but you really don’t need to see it again. It looks like yesterday’s picture, only a bit longer.
In closing, I just wanna say that I feel a bit sorry for Pluto. I only hope it doesn’t feel like it has to go out and buy a big car to compensate.
