Here are today's random acts of patterns:
Hurricane Ike (check out the middle finger), Louie's eye (yep, he's a boy), and Fibra Natura Cobblestone, 100% superwash merino.
First, Hurricane Ike didn't come anywhere near us. It's 100 degrees out and sunny. My heart goes out to everybody who did go through it. Watching The Weather Channel during a hurricane is like when they do the slow motion thing in action movies--you see the same satellite image slowly rotating on a loop while somebody's gutter goes flying by your house.
Second, there was an episode last week that I refer to as 'Sexing the Kitty.' The cat was bathing itself and LuLu is a Louie and 10-4 I got a visual confirmation on that.
Third, I just saw this yarn at Gauge. It's 100% superwash merino that's milled to look like handspun which I think is an interesting development in the world of commercial superwash. What really caught my eye was their new shipment from HandMaiden. Here's the HandMaiden Great Big Sea, which is the worsted version of Sea Silk, and this 'Midnight' colorway is soooo very tempting. I've got some SeaCell (peridot) on the needles and I really like the way it feels.
Here's a shot of the shop, so you can enjoy all the fiber love.
I have been knitting and spinning, but I'm known as the knitter who sews over at Gauge. Karli asked me to sew up a couple of things for her. Awwwwww...lucky baby!
Louie is actively campaigning for Palin these days....
something about dead parrots and lumberjacks.
