Lace On A Lamp
I am calling this highly artistic photograph "Lace On A Lamp." Some people might know it as "Branching Out" from Knitty but I like to state the obvious.
Didn't My Blocker do a lovely job? She's a very talented woman. And quick too! And has the world's most beautiful baby. Anyway, for those of you interested in yarn (ha) this was knit in Elsebeth Lavold's Silky Wool in the colorway "I've Forgotten." On whatever size needles the pattern calls for. This was my first lace project and while the general consensus is, is that Branching Out is a beginner's pattern, I wouldn't readily agree. Or maybe I'm just lace challenged.
I wore it to work yesterday, telling everyone that wearing a scarf was my "condescension" to the cold weather. Nice mangling of the English language there, April.
You know the world is aware of your sock yarn obsession when you start getting e-mails from your LYS telling you they have new yarn in the store. This is Colinette's "Jitterbug" sock yarn. I'd love to tell you all the pertinent details about it but I'm at work and the yarn is at home. But it's nice to look at, regardless.
Andy likes to play fetch.
I love bubble baths. Especially on cold nights which it was last night. I like them so much that I have a tendency to fall asleep in the tub.
Apparently Andy still doesn't understand that when Mommy's eyes are closed, Mommy is asleep.
Let us now bow our heads in mourning for the loss of our dear friends, Squeaker Fish (death by drowning), Mr. Mousie (death by drowning) and Catnip Pillow (death by drowning.)
