A morning peek
Oh yeah. I pinned out the front of St. Brigid last night and had myself a little peek this morning. Someday, I'll buy some better pins and a Spaceboard; in the meantime, I work with what I've got: a motley assortment of regular sewing pins and a cardboard thing that I bought at a rummage sale for $1.00. It's big, folds up like an accordion, it's gridded in both inches and centimeters, and I haven't perforated it to death yet. It's getting a little warped because I have even used it for wet-blocking. I had concerns about odor from wet paper, but so far so good (nothing's ever sopping wet). For the front of St. Brigid, I blocked in the manner instructed, using a freshly washed towel, spun on the "max extract" cycle, to lay atop the knitting.
Kristi has finished her St. Brigid! Go see! Inspiration...
I finished the back last night and got one of the sleeves back on the needles. Today, after I
do our taxes run the vacuum and do a little dusting -- okay, maybe I'll do our taxes organize (or even put away) paperwork the mountain of knitting books and stuff that's accumulated around my chair -- I'll do the taxes saddles. Why put off 'til tomorrow what you can do today? Taxes.
Ali has a clay class for art. Second semester has just begun and the pottery is already flowing. I might need a whole new cupboard or something just to display her stuff. Katie had an aversion to the wheel; Alison has taken to it like a duck to water. The morning sun is streaming into my kitchen this morning -- just the kind of day I like for
doing the taxes cleaning and knitting.
