So here's an update.
I totally fell off the wagon and bought some linen yarn which I hope will become either a tank or a summer cardigan:
#Resist activities continue. I asked The Girls to design a stamp with a "pussy bites back" theme. They came up with a great one. For the record, Zazzle wouldn't print it. We purchased them through Shutterfly.
I also went to my first postcard-signing open house. A knitting buddy has them regularly. It was fun; made me feel good too.
I got my resist pin but am disappointed by how many people think it's a cute kitty pin. I may have to get the tattoo, if nothing else to let people know that I'm serious.
I hosted a slumber party recently with The Girls and the grandkids. Soon there will be another with just the kids.
We always have fun either way. OK, maybe a little more fun when The Girls are away because we are a little lax when Nana is the only adult >:)
I was recently in Atlanta for work. It went well. Tonight I'm hoping to make it to D.C. so I can have lunch with Boy-child tomorrow. I used to go and return in one day but they don't have the 7am departure any more...
Whilst in Atlanta I went to the High Museum. They had this buggy textile piece which I liked a lot.
Poe is there, and Lovecraft too.
I discovered the Goldfish Memory shawl and have added it to my list of projects I want to knit. Right now I'm favoring this color combo.
I finished the first of a pair of Phalangees but I'm not sure if I'll make the second one. I'm afraid it's kind of big (I have very small wrists) and a sproingy yarn would have been better for the pattern. This is one of my knitting goals for the year: matching up yarns to patterns. Alas, good matches are still sometimes elusive.
I do like the pattern; it's very clever.
