sticks, beads and strings
make wonderful, beautiful things

It’s raining!

Schizophrenic Ophelia has finally arrived. Our guest is expected to stay 2 days, bringing lots and lots of water, but not much else- at least here.

Yesterday, I finished one sleeve of DS#2 sweater, and started the second. I’ll have to weave the ends on those and seam them before I can finish the top. I am using the “naglar” unpattern by EZ, but I am not sure yet that it will be long enough from the arms to the neck. I should know I can trust her by now, but I am just a doubtful knitter with anything until it’s finished.

I ripped the shawl back to nothing. I found a mistake a few rows back as I was working on it yesterday. It affected the whole of one side of the thing, so out it all came. Just 15 rows, but over 450 stitches per row.

Today, I want to get the body done on the custom pants and work some more on the sleeve of the sweater. And a few rows on the Santa Train sweater, too. I’ll get a pic up of that when I have enough done to see.

Here’s some stuff I found yesterday:

the object of affection of Titania through a love spell.

Jack Kelly: No shame

As usual, it’s fairly easy to tell what the political leanings are from any writer’s words. The right is yelling about local and state foul-ups, while the left is screaming for Bush’s head on a pole. And as usual, I imagine the truth lies somewhere in the middle. Did I mention “as usual”? Used to be the news was a collection of facts, but now the news, all news, is a collection of filtered and colored facts.

Carla, I did glance over that link you sent, and I’ll look over it in detail when I get another quiet moment. I want to compare it to the first thing you sent, the 4?? page one.
