linen stitch scarf
It’s made of a single row of this and that of the “good stuff” (mostly dk-worsted), in ordinary linen stitch on 10′s. I cast off on something humongous, maybe a 13, so it leans in to the cast on side. So I blocked it…
A good, quick trial run that let me know how many I need to cast on for the “real” project! It’ll probably be an xmas gift for somebody. I’ll blather details about it over on Ravelry soon.
look who was waiting near my car at the end of the week
Which was Thursday because we had a shut-down day on Friday.
I walked right by it and thought, oooh, furry, before my brain registered that fur doesn’t belong on an abandoned loading dock and that the fur in question was on the outside of a living, breathing animal.
I was a little worried something was wrong with it, even though they are somewhat pestilent little critters, because it just sat there while I took a bunch of pictures. But when I stepped onto the first step, it moved, and hid behind some wood. Which is what these critters should do, unless they have rabies, which, given my experience, is something I think about. (In case you didn’t notice, I have a whole category dedicated to the rabies thing… no comments on these posts because they came in from the livejournal blog and I couldn’t figure out how to transfer the comments with the posts).
I was actually after a photo of its fat little behind, but it said no way you’re putting that out on the web!
Look what I found this morning at a yard sale in the neighborhood,
Robbie’s dancing chicken mugs! One dollar for the pair! (don’t tell Robbie!!!) These amuse me so much, and though I’ve gifted dancing chicken pottery, I don’t have any of my own… until now! She’ll be at the common ground fair, so you can get your own dancing chicken pottery if you’re there. (she has lots of other fun stuff, including sheep mugs). Though most of the chickens are dancing, there’s always a hen sitting on her eggs on these pieces.
I think it’s time for that second cup of coffee!!
