Not much

December 19, 2005

I’m not the witty type who can write a whole entry about not having anything to write about, and have it be hilarious and compelling. So I had to run around and take pictures of things, but there isn’t much.

The rambouillet that didn’t become gloves is becoming a brioche stitch scarf. It’s about half done and I think it will be about 30 inches long when finished. I am knitting on size 6 but I probably could comfortably have done this yarn on size 7.

I finished one of the fronts of ‘Cutaway’ and will cast on the other one tonight. I have jury duty tomorrow and need something I can knit on all day. ‘Empirical’ would probably be good, but it’s on metal needles and I don’t want to take a chance of being refused permission to bring it in. I also finished another bobbin of cashmere/merino but haven’t had a chance to ply it yet.

I used to have, on my fiber porch, a couch and 3 chairs. I realized last week that the chairs were all full of fiber stuff and could not be sat in. There’s a bag of roving on the chair near the spinning wheel. There was one project on one of the side chairs and another project on the other. I figured I would consolidate a little so I’d have at least one actual chair in the room. Here’s the other former chair.

I leave you with this, yesterday’s “Doonesbury.”

    I’m assuming the one that is not cut away is emperical. Love the colors!!

    Oh Caroline, isn’t seating space overrated? After all, there are just two bottoms in your house, yours and Emmy’s–so one chair is just fine…:) I actually cleared up today because my mother’s coming to visit and I’m having a medical procedure. Silly me, I thought the bedroom should be cleaned up, for starters. Pfffle. why not?
    As for the knitting, that scarf looks delish. I want to dive right into its cushiness. ahhhh.
