Suffering the aftereffects of too many malted milk ball mini Easter eggs. They were so crunchy, and so tiny!
Your Birthday Present Update
I do believe this is the longest I have ever left something in the blocking parlour. Your Half Belinda wrap stayed on the blocking wires for a record three weeks.
It looks a lot less like a fishing net now. In fact, I am going to have a hard time giving this to you so it’s a good thing that we have such a high mutual regard and deep affection that I would never go back on my word and KEEP THE THING or “lose it in the mail” or anything.
I don’t actually think this superblocking will result in some sort of altered fiber memory, but I figured what the heck it’s in limbo now anyway. For the second half of this wrap, I’ve ordered up some Handmaiden Silk Lace from the greatest yarn enabler of all time, Nancy of ColorSong Yarns. Very curious to see what this is going to look like with its shiny half added.
OK, here’s a dinner that needs to happen:
1. USAir Captain Sully Sullenberger
2. Richard Phillips, the cargo-ship captain who escaped the Somali pirates
3. Maria D’Antuoni, the 98-year-old Italian earthquake knitter lady
After they finished their cannolis, they could have a brave-off. I love these people!
