...napping. Mmmm, doesn't this look comfortable?
Also, let's post some shawl pics! Here is a picture from my good pal, Arleta, working away on her Sagittaria shawl. Nice, ay? I think so, too.
Here is a picture of my Moonlight Sonata shawl, finally some daylight to show it in. I showed it to a lady at church, who asked to see it - I don't maul people with my knitting, even if I'm feeling especially proud - And she informed me I was showing the wrong side, so I turned it over. Then she sniffed and turned away. Ouch! Well, poo to her. I likes it, and I think it's coming along swimmingly. And I like both sides, so there! (insert me childishly sticking out my tongue)
Did y'all catch The Graham Norton Show last night? He's a British commedienne who is really snarky about people, the things they do... it's not really my favorite thing, but I love the guest stars he gets on. Well, last night, he featured a woman, Allison Murray, who knit a house! She did! She knit a house, then knit and felted everything in it! She had a push broom, complete with fringe, and a bowl of fruit, everything felted to scale; there was a teapot with milk in it. She was amazing. And you could see Graham was going to be snarky, cuz that's who he is, but by the time he was done looking at it, he was really impressed. I loved that! Good for her. She freaked out a muggle. It might have cost her her eyesight and a year of her life to do it, but she did. You rock, Allison.
