Limeade and more!

This is just the coolest scarf! It's 75 inches long! I blocked it out a bit to show up the holes, but I know it will get pulled lengthwise in time. Now I just need the hat and mitts.... I guess it would be counter-productive to have holes in one's winter hat. Imagine it with my red coat! Oooh la.

Yesterday I was "cleaning up" beside the bed. I was putting all the yarn for one project in a heap, and putting magazines away, and I picked up something, who knows what, and apparently there was one nice loose 2mm double-pointed needle on that something, and it rolled off, in just such a way that it ended up down the heat vent! Argh! I lifted the cover and poked around, but it's just a hole that descends from the top floor to the furnace in the basement! I considered calling Sears to come clean out my ducts, but perhaps that's a bit drastic. I have another set of 2mms, but they are very long for socks, and the one that has vanished was one of the nice short ones I got from Sue, who had a fistful of mismatched tiny dpns.

This mishap did have the consequence that I noticed the lovely sock I had cast on, and I found one of my very long needles and continued on the ribbing. So, there's your silver lining.

And just for completeness, here's Elaine's dress. It's a bit longer than when you last saw it, though I think my chances of finishing it by the end of November are slim!

PS. You think the chicken hat is silly? Check out the Turkey!


  1. the pattern on elaine's dress is so pretty.

    I know how you feel about blocking. My stole just keeps getting longer and narrow... it's driving me insame
