I couldn't resist this cartoon from The New Yorker about a month back. I hope I'm not going to be sued for putting it on my blog!
I finished the Fair Isle Gloves!!!! I even sewed in all the loose ends. All I need to do now is block them, after which I will post a photo here.
On the needles now: Teva Dunham's gorgeous "woven" scarf for future SIL Chris, and the infamous, dreaded Misfits logo sweatshirt for Ben. A mother's love knows no bounds. I twisted my brain around a bit making the chart for the sweater. It's the first time I have charted anything this big. In the process, I created knitting graph paper with eight stitches across and 16 stitches down, with red lines at each "inch". The paper is quite nice, a full 8.5 x 11 inch page, and if anyone wants a copy, please email me and I'll send it to you. Here is the logo I worked with:
Well, blogspot is not doing what it is supposed to, so the photo will have to wait. Sorry!
I have a real Jones to learn spinning. Somewhere I have the name and number of a woman willing to teach me. Wonder if I'll ever find it....If you are a spinner in the Pacific Northwest (Tacoma area in particular) and are willing to be "plied" (pun intended) feel free to step up and volunteer!
