Perfect Sweater: Your Summer Reading Project
June 19, 2006
Go try this.* Pretty! It makes such a flowery picture of a blog. Reminds me of a mind map, kind of like the ones we have for the Perfect Handknit project . . . which I have not forgotten . . . which is marinating like a Piggly Wiggly flank steak in a bucket of lo-cal Italian dressing . . . waiting to be thrown on the grill . . .
If you’re just joining us, please feel free to enjoy some extended summer reading–you can catch up on the Perfect Handknit project, which began last September 5 here, if you scroll down. It continued until half of the participants quit and starting drinking heavily. Remember: Chartres cathedral took a couple hundred years to get just right. Are we going to stop now? NEVERRRRRRRR!
At this point we have agreed on the Perfect Yarn, the Perfect Project, and the Perfect 10,000 Details. A batch of intrepid designers are cooking up various necklines for the Perfect Sweater–I have several of the versions in hand. If you’re working on a neckline version, give a holler so I can take stock.
Wishing you a perfect Monday. We’re heading back up to La Grundy, where life gets boiled down to the simple needs: food, clothes, yarn, and the quest for a little bandwidth. It’s going to kill me to drive past the Bonnaroo site in Manchester and know that, only hours ago, Beck was there yet I was not.
*Thanks to Jerry for this cool toy.
