If it seems a long time since I posted, my camera is pooched, and I want another one, and FC is supposed to get me one- or something, so I'm using Laura's, and that's all I'm going to say on that subject- except that I"M NOT HAPPY.
We have slipped into summer mode at Chez Sheriff, even though it doesn't officially begin until June 21- but as you can probably guess, we had record temperatures yesterday. Woof.
Miss Mew graduated with Honors- and will write her Law Society exam in August. In the meantime, I am spending some wonderful time with her, before she heads off to career land.
And she got some beautiful pink roses.
I have begun a lace project, which I am completely in love with. The pattern is La Cumparsita- and that amazing yarn is from Twisted Fiber Art- in the"Embers" color. This was custom dyed so that the grey areas are in the main body of the shawl- and the bigger leaf edging morphs into red/orange. It's amazing, and so much fun.
I did another pair of Monkeys, and I am really s-l-o-w in coming to realization that hand knitted socks are incredible to wear. Fair Isle will have to wait. I hope to have the green one done around September, but the only schedules around here are self-imposed- and I don't like to be micro-managed at the best of times.
I read both of these. The first one "Hit By A Farm"- is more about the beginning of their sheep farm, and coming to terms with a major lifestyle change. In "Sheepish" she learns what those fiber freaks are all about- and embraces knitting, and spinning, as well as the allure of yarn. Her writing style is witty, but not silly. I liked them.
Kitten Chow fails to understand why his mealtimes are micro-managed, and wants to know why food is not available on demand.
