Last week in the comments, AnnH asked me:
What are the criteria for your “must make” list?
Ooh, that’s a tough question. It’s based pretty much on a gut reaction to a design.
I am extraordinarily picky about the cabled sweaters I knit, but I can’t come up with any reasons why some designs that appeal to me and some don’t. I look through a book and automatically say “Love it, hate it, love it, hate it” and I never change my mind. Same thing with lace. Once again, extraordinarily picky.
What do you all think? What are the criteria for your “must make” list?
I finished Lismore Friday night, while watching La Vie en Rose. (By the way, La Vie en Rose was an incredible movie and Marion Cotillard gave an amazing performance as Edith Piaf.)
I carefully laid Lismore out to photograph it, but I had some problems.
See what I mean?
My photo stylist seemed to have issues . . .
Finally, she seemed satisfied and let me get on with it.
I’m not going to start another “big” project this week. Thursday morning I am going to St. Louis to participate in The Loopy Ewe Spring Fling, and I’m teaching 4 classes there. Apart from working on my sock in progress, I’ve got a fair amount of knitting I need to do to prepare for the classes, so I’ll be doing that in the evenings this week.
In other news, this handsome fellow wants to audition to be a Knight Who Says Ni:
I think anyone as cute as he who has his own knitted chain mail need not audition, don’t you?
In other, other news, Lucy is exhausted from helping me with the Lismore photo-shoot.
