Yes, friends, I have been out of blog touch (dirty!) but I have thought of all of you fondly. I have mused over the good old days where I could be relied upon to generate more than one post a month. Perhaps those golden days will once again return! Possibly when my brain cloud has cleared up.
Despite the cloudy days, I did squeeze out another pair of socks. For me. MEEEEE! Yarn is Opal Lollipop (dirty!) in an unknown (to me) German colorway. Pattern is Nancy Bush's Oak Rib sock on size 2 needles (2.75mm). I wore these all weekend. Dirty! No, literally, now they're dirty.
Good pal Rebecca came to visit from Massachusetts with daffodils and chocolate and plan to find some new yarn. A delight! And look what Rebecca sent me in the mail last week.
It's Grumperina's Odessa, and it's perfect! There are beautiful beads knitted into the hat.
I feel fab-u-lous wearing this hat! Very roaring '20s.
Our good pal Jenna has suggested a new quiz for us--an Austen quiz:
I totally knew that would happen. But as luck would have it, Jenna came up Marianne Dashwood so we're totally sisters now and we'll have to figure out how to marry well in order to support our family and I will have to be all practical and good-naturedly scolding and Jenna will have dramatic fits of anguish. That's pretty much what happens whenever we get together anyway. Especially if an afternoon of Bridezillas and mimosas are involved.
