I have spun a smidgen more silk. Lily is here and wanted to know why there were orange fuzzies all over my coffee table. I feel like this doesn't need explaning, as much as I just need to hand her some silk and see how long it takes for ALL OF IT to stick to her basoomers, or other extremities. (I find silk has a basoomer affinity, strange that.) I have it all contained around an old snapple bottle. It's looking very acquiescent. No?
As an aside, I do wish they would sell more than 8 bottles of Snapple in a container, because I can kill that in about 2 hours. Maybe I just need to ease up on the snapple....
I promised to introduce you all to Owl-ette. It was supposed to be a coffee cozy. Instead its a candy-dish cozy. I love it. (As a side note, I'm grateful for that flash, as you could totally see down my tank in the reflection on the microwave)
I love his little beady eyes. They're fabulous, and butterscotchy, which is why I filled that dish with butter scotch. I almost took him to work, but I'm afraid someone might permanently borrow him, which would make me sad.
I also love that my microwave is red, but that's less relevant.
I am working on fishes, from the fish blanket of wonderfulness. This is the first one! EEE! I love the little fishy body hanging off my needles. (morbid, but true)
There was a rather strict warning about how if your gauge is off the fishies wont fit together. I didn't swatch, hope I guessed okay on the needles and everything. Or I will have a few sqiggly fishes. Oh well. Knit a little, live a little. Following patterns closely is for weenies who want to get the proper knitted object the first time.
Lily is doing jazz hands and declaring she will not be making any shawls for a while. HEr mother has also verboten blankets. I think I can maybe talk her into some fishes. Hehehe.
Also, I am making some fun socks, its my next design. It's going to be crazy beans. You'll love it.
Check out the color:
I also need to finish my paper on ballet shoes....hmmmm. For now I think I'll go have a leetle nap. Or maybe some fish. Or I did just get that yarn in the mail.....
