We have a winner! Ollie drew names out of a hat and came up with ….. Darya!
I’m pretty sure I have your address D, but if you see this first, email me with it, and I’ll put your ribbon in the mail. I can’t wait to see how you use it in your art!
Dinosaurs. I neglected to show you pictures of the dinosaurs that graced our front yard for the Judge’s birthday. Here they are, being befriended by Squirt, who I don’t believe has appeared on the blog before.
Does it come as a shocked to know that I don’t get to knit and make art all day long? I have to work a day job, to support those habits. Sometimes, my knitting gets to come along with me and I take a certain pleasure in knitting in odd, out of the way places. This morning I got to knit in a new place — during oral argument before the Alabama Supreme Court. I have to digress to tell you how cool it is that we now have a woman Chief Justice on our Supreme Court, an experienced, qualified jurist who is also a mom. I was observing argument this morning and decided to knit. And I was relatively discreet. I had on a suit and pumps. No obvious baby spit-up adorned my lapels. I even had on make up. And I sat there and knitted away quietly and intently focused on the legal arguments in the way knitting helps one focus.
I think I’m going to have to find a new knitting bag for these occasions, though. Somehow, this one didn’t quite complete the suited, pearl earring look.
I think it may have been a dead give away as I walked in with it that I wasn’t like everyone else there.
But, I did get a good bit accomplished on my market bag.
I also got a few more rows done on the Giotto Tank. It has been slow going for me — I’m not sure why. Perhaps it is the moss stitch pattern or perhaps it is one of those knitting black holes and suddenly, in an instant, I will be at 11" and ready to work on the shaping. In any event, it’s pretty and I thought y’all would enjoy seeing how this ribbon yarn knits up.
