i finally finished blocking my dogwood shawl, just in time for this cool weather. all handspun and handknitted by yours truly. i wasn't so sure about the mohair trim when i was knitting it, but i love how it turned out. it's a snuggly blanket, shawl and skirt all in one. i think knitting books might be like cookbooks in that you tend to like most patterns (recipes) in a book or none. weekend knitting is my favorite so far.
there are many changes and adjustments afoot - hub's new business venture, which is taking sooooo much time - and my newly-committed writing schedule - ack. i thought of a new approach to writing that might actually work - to take everything i've ever written on this subject and smoosh it into a diss. why not? i had a different plan, and i've had trouble letting go of it, but it obviously isn't working out so well. i'm excited but unsure, as per usual.
but just for today, i am going to luxuriate in this new fall weather with faulkner, blueberry bushes, and alpaca fleece.
world's most beautiful sock pattern ever, made with the world's most beautiful yarn ever, for the world's most beautiful mother, ever
also preliminarily committing to the dottie angel utmost challenge, but with the following exceptions for things which i will try to get vintage, thrifted or handcrafted, but i may still go for new:
-yarn and wool and spinning/knitting/crafty supplies and necessaries
-critter care needs
-books, although i'll get what i can from the library
-bpal (although i believe this is all handmade)
-hub's needs/wants although i'll try to
It's Officially On!!

"Now, this is the part you won't believe," Chester said to me, "but as I watched, his lips parted in a hideous smile, and where a rabbit's buck teeth should have been, two little pointed fangs glistened."
