Ok, so it's time for some updates!
First we have the angora that I have been spinning lace-weight FOREVER!! This angora is, in it's ability to never end, sucking my soul out of my body. Eh, at least whatever I make out of it will have a piece of me in it.
Next we have my latest endeavor-knitting a set of kitchen washcloths for Rick. He says he won't use them until we move, so I'm stockpiling them for the new house. I'm using the ball-band washcloth pattern from my Mason-Dixon knitting book. There were 5 complete, however two of them were gifted to my brother Dustin, who just got an apartment with his girl-friend, Melissa.
Next is my Blue Sky Alpaca tank top. I think the pattern is the Fitted Tank pattern, but I don't have the pattern in my immediate vicinity to verify this. As you can see in the picture, I have the front complete and half of the back. I really need to stop knitting washcloths for an afternoon and finish the tank top. Hrumph.
Oh yeah, and the highlight of my afternoon was, get this-I MET THE YARN HARLOT!!! Yes, THAT Yarn Harlot! I remember a blog entry of hers I read awhile back where she talked to Martha Stewart on the radio show and was struck speechless. I wonder if Mrs. Pearl-McPhee realizes that I surely had a mini-heart attack when she actually said words to me. Of course, though, I made a dufus out of myself. She said on her blog today (or um, yesterday, since it's 15 after midnight right now) that Oklahoma City was very flat. So what do I say when I see her, 'Sure Oklahoma is flat, we had the Dust Bowl'. DOH!
I suppose that I made up for saying goofy things, though, since I gifted to her 10 oz of Lorna's Laces wool in the Black Purl colorway.
I also met two bloggers from Texas, Pam and Chris. Please know that I thought that the two of you were incredibly nice and will not embarass you by posting the crummy picture I took of you on the internet.
So, in closing, OMfreakingG! I met the Yarn Harlot!!! I also made some friends and finished stuff!
