.....and I did not....and I'd been so good about posting each week, too! But we've been having fun around here, so all is good! Here's a little recap.
I finished three items for the Ravelympics, but TWO of them were froggings. The other was a simple big needle shawl, which did not qualify for the 10 Shawls in 2010 because I read yards and saw meters.....stupid Customary units.
It's pretty & warm & a little glitzy though, so that's ok. I almost finished the Circular Vest. It's being bound off now, but I'll probably have to go back and add a few more rounds. Who can ever really tell with cotton? I really hope I still like it when I'm done.....please....let me like it!
New yarn pr*n:
The vertical yarn is Sanguine Gryphon Skinny Bugga! and Bugga! All of the horizontal yarn is all WD Wollmeise. It's all very pretty, but lately I've come to realize that I may never be able to purchase a "first run" skein of Wollmeise again. Getting up at 3:00 a.m. doesn't work very well when you have to stay alert all day teaching 9-10 y.os and for the life of me, I can't hit TLE WM updates. No 3:00 a.m. updates also means there's no chance to buy lace weight. Are there no WDs in lace weight? Certainly there must be a few somewhere.....why not make WD lace weight bags too? Just a thought....(fyi - I just learned that there were Lace Bags in today's update! Who knew?!?)
And finally - family stuff. As I write this, I am trying to upload two videos to Flickr, both of my boys in their high school's production of Peter Pan (dress rehearsal video-please excuse the boinginess of the first one!). DS#2 plays Mr. Darling. His video is posted first. DS#3 plays Captain Hook. His will be posted second. They are our babies-our twins - and both seniors. As we waited to go into the auditorium last night, I have to admit that my heart was very full....full of happiness for them, love and pride for their accomplishments, and a little twinge of whatever it is you feel at transition points like this. **sigh** I hope you'll enjoy the excerpts - we certainly do!
DS#2 - Mr.Darling
DS#3 - Captain Hook
