Lucy would like to thank those of you who said that they would send her Wildside Salmon if they won the lottery.
I was considering mentioning in yesterday’s blog post that getting her an unlimited supply of Wildside Salmon would be a priority should I win the lottery. But then I remembered that I already get her an unlimited supply of Wildside Salmon.
Aside: Lucy loves Wildside Salmon. She is a finicky little girl, refusing most kitty treats. But she has never turned down Wildside Salmon, and goes so far as to specifically ask for it every day. Loudly.
It was fun to read all the comments about what you’d do if you won the lottery. Daydreaming about a big lottery win is one of my favorite pastimes.
A long time ago in an office far far away, my coworker Donna and I often played this game. She always said that she’d buy several Tiffany “scatter pins.” She got the Tiffany catalog, so she’d bring it to the office and we’d drool over it together. At that time, Tiffany had several whimsical little pins available — I remember a jeweled bumblebee, costing several thousand dollars. Each. Donna would say “You know, scatter pins. You buy several of ‘em and just scatter them on your lapel!”
We always thought this was hilarious. But you probably had to be there.
Several of you asked what I’d like my WendyKnits colorway of Wollmeise to be like. I’m torn between having a mix of greens and browns, like my Loopy Legends colorway, Wendy’s Ferns & Toadstools, or a Lucy colorway, like Blue Moon Fiber Arts’ Lucy.
Heck, I say we get two WendyKnits colorways!
But until that time, I’ll just knit what I’ve got.
Speaking of knitting what I’ve got, here is the shawl-in-progress.
I’m thinking I’m going to do at least two more 32-row pattern repeats before I start the 42-row edging. That’ll give me a good 40 rows more than I usually do for a triangular shawl, but I don’t think I want to block this too severely. I like the way the motif looks just slightly stretched. Also, the intended recipient is tall, so she needs a long shawl.
And in the meantime, I’m chomping at the bit to start a new project. I’ve got yarn and pattern in mind. But I won’t allow myself to start it until I finish this shawl.
And here, just because Johanne asked, a picture of the second Alana sock in progress.
Oh, and I almost forgot . . .
There were 1317 entries in the drawing for the Frosch Wollmeise. The random number generator chose #564 (chronologically numbered, with the first email received being #1), which turned out to be:
Thank you everyone who emailed an entry. While I don’t have time to respond to 1317 emails, I do read them all! I wish I had Wollmeise for all of you.
