It has been so hot in Portlandia and it just pulls it out of me since I work outdoors. Today is my father's 70th b-day and I've not finished his sweater (oh the guilt!!!!) I just want to sit and knit today (and pay some bills, eat, work out, play some rugby)... anything but move stones in a garden (horticultural stonework is my career at this point).
What I am currently working on. A stole or sash made of alpaca (really nice but inexpensive stuff) and blue moon mini-mohair loop in "olive garden". Extremely lux. You jus' wanna roll around nekkid on it. It should be perfect with the kilt that I am sewing for myself. (Brown merino-linen blend). Now I just have to knit the perfect socks and a tam, sew up a snazzy little shirt in an appropriate color (that hides any shedding of the shawl) and I will be perfectly attired for I don't know, Halloween, or any formal affair? The ballet? les Sylphide? White bird dance performance?
