“I just want more of her.” A wonderful piece on the late lamented food writer, Laurie Colwin.

Vacation knitting plans

Kay–I’m heading out of town this afternoon for a week at the beach, so of course I have spent considerable time planning my knitting. The All Seasons Cotton Splash is going along for brainless car knitting (I’d take the eight-pound-ball of yarn, it’s so fun, but I’d need to put a child out of the car to make room).
I’m taking a bunch of Donegal Lambswool to try out fair isle color combinations–after one fair isle sweater a year ago for my niece Ann, I’m getting the urge again. But this time I want to do it in the round to avoid the dreaded purl-row pattern-backwards problem. And because I’m too spastic to do fair isle with two hands (who ARE those people?), it’s bound to be much easier to do it slip stitch style when there are only knit stitches to do.
