The Unbirthday Party was successful. By the time we got to the actual party time, I was exhausted. Still, it was very enjoyable. David and BB had fabulous story telling times and discussions about film (not movies, but “film”). BSIL and Peanut took me to Knitorious and I bought ONE, only one skein of yarn. I will share that with you soon. It is Arucania Ranco in a very subtle shade of BRIGHT RED! And, Peanut got some gorgeous laceweight yarn from an Etsy shop in London(she didn’t say which one ). I baked a cake, but refused to take a picture because it looked like hell, but tasted good. That’s what happens when you decorate a cake in 45 seconds. My so-called secret with vanilla cake mixes is to add good quality vanilla to the mix. Makes it taste really fresh.
So, my trip down memory lane today is my Koolhaas hat. This is an amazing hat to knit. Easy, but interesting. And, my Mother adores it. She has worn it to bed when it has been bitterly cold. I am currently working on birthday fingerless mitts for my dear friend Max. I have one completed and am over halfway done with the other one. It’s an easy pattern and I will link it when I have the (as Margene says) photoshoot. It’s getting close, so I can go back to my sweater.
And, since today is Monday. Where did the weekend go exactly? I must have a booming exciting soundtrack today to get my butt out of the house………..
If this doesn’t get you movin’ then “rock my soul in the bosom of Abraham” there is absolutely no hope for you!
