... First of all, thank you all for the wonderful name suggestions. It is amazing how someone can suggest a name and you have that V-8 moment, and think, oh yeah, I see that. I tried to send emails to each of you that left a suggestion, but could not find email addy's for all of you, so to those of you who did not receive one, I am sorry, and thank you very much for suggesting names and visiting my blog. After reviewing the names and discussing the reasoning behind each suggestion, we (meaning my girls and I, and Karen) have decided on "Ariel", suggested by Hattie . Hattie I will email you for you snail mail address and your color choice from the Loopy Ewe. Thanks again to all who participated. I think I will have another contest in the near future, it was fun.
Well, neither the Shibui nor the Woolly Boully made their way on to the swift this weekend. I don't know how that happened. But part of the reason was, after I took such careful and meticulous notes for the fingerless mitts .... I threw them away. I usually write my notes down in a notebook (that is, when I remember to write them down) but these I wrote on a loose piece of paper. When I was cleaning the other day ... you guessed it, I threw them away. I also threw away a prescription for blood pressure medicine, and I am somewhat ashamed to admit, I went dumpster diving for that (well at least the dumpster, aka. very large trash can is our own and in my garage). I need my blood pressure medicine and it was the weekend, what else could I do???. If only I had realized at the time that the pattern notes were in that pile too. I wonder what else was in the save pile that made it to the trash. I hope nothing too important, because it is long gone now. Anyway, I had to write up another pattern for the mitts.
I did finish one sock. The Fleece Artist in the Hercules colorway. I am naming this one "Furrows". It would maybe seem better named if the yarn was brown or earthen colored, but the design reminds me of a ploughed field, so "Furrows" it is. They fit great too!!! Or I should really have that in the singular form, it fits great. I am going to work on that for the rest of the week. I have so many singleton socks. I am going to knit mates for a few of them before I cast on for more. I have the Shibui and the Woolly Boully here on the desk, reminding me of their loveliness, so I will have to knit fast so they can be wound. Yeah right, we will see how long I can hold out.
That is all for today.
Thanks again to all who left name suggestions and have a great week!!!
