Pig's Eye and Beyond
The past few days have been only marginally interesting, since for most of it i have been at work doing mostly nothing. The Uptown Art Fair and masses of nasty people driving their Acuras and Lexii (plural of Lexus??) very badly invaded the vicinity and thus, there was noone at the poor little museum. So, i got some knitting done. No complaints there.
We did bike over to Pig's Eye on Friday, which was an adventure. J bought me some lovely Amy Butler fabric at Treadle Yard Goods, partially to assuage his guilt at having bought another box of Magic cards. i made out well:
i should be able to get a couple of skirts, a bag, and a sash out of the lot. i have been asking myself the unfortunate question, however, how many skirts do i really need? For that, alas, i have no answer.
Also, the Candelabra Camisole is finished. i was surprised how cute it looked on, since it is basically just a tube with some straps and a bit of shaping and didn't look like very much at all sitting on my bed. The lace pattern was very do-able, so i think that Orangina will be next, that is, after my rent refund check comes in... one day...
i started a One Skein Wonder using some leftover yarn that i dyed with koolaid a long time ago and it is progressing well. i'll have to switch to a solid when i run out of the hand dyed stuff, but i think it will blend ok.
i suppose i should get started on the plethora of chores that need doing around here before Monday Night Nerdfest, wherein yours truly is allegedly storytelling (though she would probably rather be knitting) for her nerdy, nerdy friends. Also, finding something to eat rather than day-old cookies might be a good idea...

...though she would probably rather be knitting...
But you still do knit. It seems like a win-win situation to me.
Also: the lace looks wonderful.

Mi dispiace per le mie parole false. Ho pensato che vedevo te knitting mentre telling.
