Weekend Wrap Up

Just a quick post to say that I'll get a photo of the fleece I bought yesterday up as soon as I can. It's a multi-colored Corriedale with many of shades of gray. It's small--only 2.5 lbs. It was lots of fun to fondle all the fiber and especially fun to watch the little lambs. Unfortunately it was pouring. Note: Next year wear boots. I still have lots of dried sheep slurry on my shoes from slogging around near the barn.

I finished my secret project. Finally! It's soaking right now. I'll block it and photograph it. Once it's been received I'll post pictures.

Tonight I'm cutting the steek on Retro Prep the Third at Purlygirls. Before I machine stitched it on Saturday I double-checked to make sure I stitched in the right spot. That's when I discovered that I had placed the neck two stitches off center. There was a bit of ripping and reknitting.

Oscar recap: No big surprises this year. No outfits I completely hated except Sally Kirkland who has obviously gone completely off her nut. There were only a few outfits I absolutely loved. Kate Winslet looked gorgeous. I loved her hair, make-up, jewelry and her gown. The color and cut were so flattering and fresh looking. Reese Witherspoon looked fabulous. I loved the dash of color at the hem of her dress and the way it flowed. Rachel Weisz also looked so elegant in her champagne-colored Vera Wang. For the men, George Clooney was the reincarnation of Cary Grant. So dashing. And what happened to Philip Seymour Hoffman?? He looked like he'd been licked by a goat just moments before coming on stage.

I've got to run. More soon!
