Branching Out !

I cast off last night πŸ™‚

It is a little shorter than a normal scarf, but just long enough to fold and wrap, and it sits very nicely on a slim person, and the person that I intend to send it to is rather slim, so I hope she likes it !

This morning I sewed in the ends, and have given it a bath in Martha’s Wool Wash, and it is now resting on my dining table on a lovely turquoise towel. I wouldn”t exactly call it blocking. I have no pins to speak of, and no real inclination to spend an hour trying to get all the edges straight.

And here it is..

And again, with the little stone bunny Mark gave me for Christmas 2003

Can I bear to Part with It ?

If You Have Any Spare VIbes…

Please send them to Paige, C/- Singapore….

Paige took her teenage son on a big adventure, they visited America, and the UK, and were on their way home via Singapore when Paige had a dizzy spell and fainted, knocking her head on a metal cabinet in the ladies. She has a severe concussion, double vision, a loud ringing in her ears, and a massive, continuing headache.

She has been told she is not allowed to fly, so she is stranded far from home until she gets better. But she isn’t getting better.

The lovely Vicki has put Paige in touch with a local friend, whose brother just happens to be a top neurosurgeon. He says Paige needs an MRI, but she has bad claustrophobia….

I am very worried about my dear friend. She could use all the help the universe can muster right now.

I’ve Been Sorted…

I really thought I’d end up in Hufflepuff or Slytherin, but….

Congratulations on making Gryffindor!

Basically, you’re brave, daring, chivalrous, and pretty much.. an all around good person. Of course, some see you as a goodie-two-shoes. But hey, it’s true! You’re really good at winning, and normally always come out as the hero. Everybody likes you.. except, maybe, the Slytherins. You’re too perfect. No, really.. You’re too perfect. It’s annoying to watch you win, repeatedly. Oh well. Be proud anyway.

i'm in gryffindor!

How To Follow A Lace Pattern in the Car

Necessity is the Mother of Invention

Though I am kinda getting the hang of the lace pattern, I decided that colouring each row differently will help me keep track of which row I am on. And I have a new iPod gadget, called the iGrip. It’s a kind of sticky pad that keeps my iPod from sliding all over the place while I drive. And guess what ? It works with knitting patterns too ! Genius πŸ™‚
