So Much to Talk About!

Wow...and it's only (the wee small hours of) Sunday morning!
Ok...I've been busy sewing, but most of what I've done you've seen in one iteration or another...except for this:

I had to show you. See? I don't just "do" cats on my bags! (Yes, this is a custom order!)

And remember the Watercolor Feather & Fan sock? Um. Well. I knew that yarn was trying to tell me something when I tried the (easy lace) pattern on the cuff 3 times and made more errors than I can tell you. I've done that pattern many times, and it IS easy...that yarn did NOT want to be a sock and frankly, it was too soft to be a sock - it wouldn't have worn well at all inside a shoe - and it kept telling me that all the way up the foot and while turning the heel. I just didn't listen to it till I couldn't make the cuff pattern work! (I will learn one of these days...)

What did it want? Apparently, it is besotted with Anne's Boing!. See?
I'm not surprised. The yarn is perfect for it. I even pulled out the old pink aluminum needles for this one! (And tried to go with the little jeweled stitch markers, but they got hung up in this ultra-baby soft yarn, so out came the rubber rings again! (sigh)

However, please note the Knails?!? Those are mine, all mine, not a touch of acrylic anywhere. I'm not in love with them, but they've grown out and tho' I'm a rotten manicurist, I did get them painted. Now if I can just keep them from breaking off!

On a far more serious note, I've signed up again for the next Blogblast for Peace on June 4. Won't you join me?

That Posy fits right in with the book I just finished, Captivity by Debbie Lee Wesselmann, about a sanctuary for chimpanzees (not gorillas like the fabric print, but close).. Your yarn looks much better in the Boing than it did in the sock. {{{HUGS}}}

The yarn looks so happy now! Don't you love it when you finally hear it saying what it wants to be?

Nails are lookin' pretty fetching, there, to! :-)

Perfect yarn for Boing! That yarn is just so energetic! Your Knails look beautiful. Love the gorilla bag.

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
