Like The Queen
Whatever happens to strike my fancy, but surely some sort of fiber content.


I have the yellow one! I used the lovely little rocking horse as the center of a lacy baby blanket (border in horseshoe lace, of course!).

Yes, I am a lurker. My sister is a children's librarian and I'm a fiberholic, so I read your blog faithfully...

I have all three plus the top down book. I think number two is my overall favorite. The yellow one just doesn't do it for me. Hardly ever look at it. The first two though are always open to something I'm currently using. So there.

I'm delighted to "hear" optimism in your written voice again. I sure hope all your tests come back perfect.

De-lurking here. I wish I had an angel slip stitch pattern for you, but alas! So I'll just leave kudos for a well-written blog. Happy Thursday!

Delurking here....been reading your bog for a while. Wish I could have been around when you came to visit Jane's class and us at TNK, but alas, I was firmly in the grip of late pregnancy (and on bedrest!). Here's hoping we'll meet sometime soon, I really like they way you write. :)

I can't imagine there is a person out there who would NOT want to post a comment! The swatch of mystery sounds intriguing--can't wait to hear more.

Oh. Well. I’ll admit it. I suffer from comment envy. I too would like to have 98 comments each time I check in. Proof that I am cool and popular and say things that matter - for the betterment of mankind, of course - oh and world peace.

But then I think about my reality and I love it that the folk who actually have a reaction to my words do leave a comment and that is enough.

Besides, today I don’t have anything to say. There are a few things that are percolating in the brain, but they aren’t ready to be poured out yet. Even my knitting is at a most unexciting stage. I am now 8 inches up the front of the BSHP ribbed turtleneck. Two sleeves (in ribbing) will follow this and some assembly is required. There is a swatch that I’m working on but, I’m not in the mood to talk about it yet. I’ve added to my Mostly Stitches collection: Barbara Walker’s Third Treasury - the yellow one, with charts. And as I thought, I had to go to a yarn shop to get it. Fortunately, yesterday’s tasks took me to Richmond where I snapped it up. Only the First Treasury to get now, the blue one. But I borrowed that one from the library last night - because, wouldn’t you know it? - That one has the stitch I think I want to put in the swatch I’m not ready to talk about.

Somewhere in my collection of single stray pieces of paper, stuffed into some nook or cranny, I have a slip stitch design that looks like a little angel. I may have thrown it away, but I hope I didn’t. I can’t find it, though, and I know I copied it from someplace on-line, back in the early days of my knitting exuberance, when I was copying everything and anything. Back before I had 74 75 knitting books.

So. If anyone out there who is planning on commenting during De-Lurk Week has an angel slip stitch pattern, please share it with me.

We got all the family business done swiftly and sweetly yesterday and there are only 2 days left to work this week. Last night at WW there was real downward progress - from an all time high, alas, but Down is Down - that is my WW motto. On Friday I will get some of those ought-to-be-rewarded-for medical tests done. Much of it is Getting Ready For Old Age base line stuff. But after that I am on a lovely 4 day weekend. Perhaps I shall finish the BSHP front then. The back is in pretty good, if not perfect shape. Altogether this is a Good News Post. Just not very interesting. I hope to do better, later this week.
