Just a quick note to say hello. Will write more about my trip later. (No, this isn’t Venice.)
I‘ve finished my project for the Summer of Lace 2005 knitalong*, the Wool Peddler’s Shawl from Folk Shawls. Yes, that was a knitalong that Wendy Johnson ran in the summer of 2005, which proves my claim to being the world’s slowest knitter.
Just thought you’d might like to know. (Pictures on my Loose Ends page as soon as I’ve finished blocking it-hopefully by the Summer of 2007.)
Other projects still on the needles (in order of freshness):
- Kim Salaazar’s Zig-Zag Socks from Knitnet.com
- Kaffe Fassetts’ Kilim Cushion Cover from a Rowan Kit
- (I think I’ve hidden a few things in places I can’t remember…)
(*knitalong or KAL for short-a project/pattern that is knit by many people at the same time in order to compare notes and solve problems. Usually accompanied by an online discussion/support group. )
Every Passover I have to laugh when we say “Chag Cherutai’nu” (Holiday of our Freedom) because I’m a slave in the kitchen nearly the entire week.
Dessert, anyone? (via Craftzine Blog)
And if you haven’t read it yet, Nominally Challenged has done a brilliant job on The Story of Passover. Can this guy write or what? Go read!
