“Hmm, let’s see, crochet=Sandy and knitting=Rizzo.”
thanks for helping bring some levity to the silly knitting/crochet “feud”.
let’s be honest; if really hated crochet,
would i be participating in helloyarn’s potholder swap? i think not! .
pattern: lucy of attic24’s hexagon how-to
yarn: ty-dy cotton
i think it’s going to be a blast so you should do it too.
let’s show those crocheters that we love them!
(at least until april 15th)
between these beauties and the socksms. lisa b made for me,
i am officially hooked. i love handmade socks.
but i still don’t love knitting them.
i can see this is going to be a problem.
September 16, 2010
today was bad.
i woke up very very late
to the sound of roofers and their nail guns.
later on, i had rage. much rage.
thanks to the power of email.
i muddled through somehow,
came home to my very clean house
and veronica let me know that mo peed in her room.
so rather than dwell on the bad day,
let’s talk about a good one.
six and two people were coming over
to block my northern summer shawl.
while i am technically able to do it myself,
i’d never blocked a triangular shawl that curves.
any shawl that is worked top down with six increases
(rather than four) every two rows will curve thusly.
so i thought,
why not make a night of it?
but if you’re going to convince people to get on their knees
you need to pay them somehow.
for pinning wet wool,
a feast is best.
-soul twin salad.
-panko breaded chicken cutlets,
fried in bacon grease,
served with mushroom gravy
-the famous mac & cheese.
-peanut tofu and broccoli,
served with white rice
-chocolate tart with almond whip cream
(provided by the lovely veronica).
(anna was in charge of the camera
so there’s no picture of her)
so remember bitches
*note – i had no one else to model for me
and while noon is the worst time to do a photo shoot
i love how this photo came out.
