About Me

My photo
Five years into widowhood, after one year of incredible happiness and nearly 14 years of single blessedness. Have given up perfect manicures and pretty hands in order to resume playing the soprano recorder and to see if I can figure out how to play bluegrass banjo. Singing in the shower. Still really, *really* love to knit!

Fetch this!

OK, patience is sometimes rewarded. I was about to close this post in exasperation when my photos leaped onto the page.

Here is Fetching.4. The *third* green pair in designer-specified Cashmerino Aran; after the first pair in leftover brown Felted Tweed that went home with my girlfriend for her flautist daughter. The first two green pairs went to my best-friend-at-work and my best-and-only-sister. If you look carefully you will see the needle still tucked inside from sewing in ends.

And here is the ball that followed me home on Monday, for another pair, for me.

It was red. What can I say?

That same trip to the LYS also yielded another ball of the brown Felted Tweed, because I *will* have another pair to match my socks.

The red cashmerino is wonderful. I have made my daughter 2 pair of Fetching and I am ready for my pair. *thank you for your encouraging comments on my projects in the 'Tweeding Along' KAL.

You're welcome, Punkin! And very much my pleasure.

I'm having a lot of fun in that KAL myself. Cast on a purple tweed sock for LittleBit last night and am nearly done with the toe increases. Pictures to be posted later this week. I'm gathering up a raft of FO's to take to Secondborn's for photographing and will include some WIP's in the same shoot.

And *this* weekend, if all goes well, I should be getting my own digital camera. Never thought I'd be wanting one; all my girls are shutterbugs to one degree or another.

You're into the fingerless gloves big time! I really like the cabled wrist part of Fetching, I wonder if it would work with my pattern, which I want to modify to be even more musician friendly.

Your daughter is one of those fortunate people know intuitively know music - what a wonderful gift to have.

So, did you catch the Bro's eye at the dance on Saturday?

Brother Abacus was distinctly MIA at both the singles' dance on Friday night, and at the fireside (inspirational talk) and break-the-fast potluck in his own part of the world on Sunday night.

I'm going back for the Cowtown dinner dance next Saturday night, and if he's not there for that, I'm going to sic my son-in-law on him, LOL.
