My Head Is Spinning
October 18, 2007
I hate to interrupt this graduate-level seminar in poetics (keep those indigoey limericks and haiku coming, you guys–see below!), but I need to make a brief announcement.
If you’re going to Rhinebeck, we want to see you. We’re cooking up a couple of blankets for Afghans for Afghans, so we would like to mooch some of your knitting skills. We’ll be in the Author Tent on Sunday from 10 until we keel over, so please stop by to add a few rows to these projects:
Project Number One: A Dizzy Blanket, based on the MDK Dizzy Rug above. We have never attempted one of these before, though we have long fantasized about it. Will it work? Will it weigh eighty pounds? We’re going to find out. We’ll have Lamb’s Pride Bulky yarn and largeish needles, so we’re hoping for a very long strip of garter stitch that some lucky soul (KAY! YOU WIN!) will fashion into a spirally blanket. If you happen to bring your own needles, that would even better!
Project Number Two: A Blanket of Mini Mitered Squares. If you’ve got miter fever, come add one to this projeck. We’ll have yarn and needles around for this as well.
O, the drama! I’m off to check the Rhinebeck weather forecast. Again.
