in other news: as you can see, my branching out scarf is complete! i finished it this weekend watching some good movies and some not-so-good movies, including nothing but a man starring the beautiful abbey lincoln (a good movie), clash of the titans (i know it should be a bad movie, but i have childhood emotional ties to it ), and the seven year itch (a bad movie! i was surprised but i thought it was really bad. marilyn monroe was beautiful but not so funny and really i much prefer the misfits).
mama cat gracefully posted for me—and my cat has style! notice the cocked ear! and such aloofness in her gaze—whatta model the other picture is my attempt at close-up knitting pics like sweet georgia and many others do, but it’s not very good. (obviously i have to study up burnt orange’s tips on knitting photography!) and, yes, please don’t notice the cat hairs all over it.
though i found out about it a little late, there is a branching out knit along blog where people have posted their beautiful mohairs, silky wook, and more, finished objects.
and i’ve joined another knitalong, the baby knitalong so i can get my seriously neglected aunty duties on a move. i finally got that erika knight book out of the library and have been studying it for a few days now. thank goodness, i already have a stack of knitted dishclothes in white cotton done all ready.
oh, and lastly, since kimberli was such a great secret pal, i decided to support one of the charities she features on her blog, namely the yarn harlot’s knitters without borders. not only is this something i’ve been meaning to do for months now, but it’s a great way to sign yourself up for some potential yarn goodies later on.
hope your weekend was great ~ mine flew by but was overall very satisfying. have a great monday!
