A blog about my life, knitting, and other stuff.

May 2, 2004


My web connection died as I was previewing my post so I lost the whole damn thing! Grrrr.
I had my tea part today. It was lovely. I made an absurd quantity of food. I made 60 scones, 30-40 truffles, six and a half dozen cookies, 90 little sandwiches, two walnut rolls...it was nuts. There were about 25 people there. I was worried it would be more like 40 and I wouldn't have enough seats or food. I ended up forcing everyone to take food home with them. And I completely forgot to take any pictures! One friend was working on a cute Rowan baby cardigan in coral colored Adrienne Vittadini yarn (Hi Eileen!), one friend was creating the No Sweat Pants in Chamonix (oo-la-la), one friend was working on a felted tote bag, one friend was finishing Tank Girl from Stitch 'N Bitch, one friend, who has lived the dream and actually visited Threadbear in person, was working on a lovely silk/wool Lorna's Laces shawl. Amy was working on Elfin ruffles, another knitter was making a baby sweater on size 1 needles. I know it's just for a baby but I think it will be a cold day in hell when I pick up size 1 needles to make a sweater. More power to her! So there were lots of cool projects and wonderful conversation.

Lola is crusing along. I finished the left front and am now working on the right front. I think I will start Sam next. I want to attempt the Estonian Socks from Folk Socks but need to get the right size needles.
