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


Okay, you're going to have to do some 'splainin' about that Apache Biker Eclair. And perhaps also your alternate spelling of "assess". ;-)

Examine what? You sure do have some 'splainin' to do! I can't wait to see the weekend progress, though.

Yes! Exactly, Jane. It’s so wonderful to be able to examine, asses, and improve one’s efforts. The learning curve is such a rewarding opportunity. And each step up I take makes it that much easier to be creative, to know ahead of time how to get where I want to go. Like suddenly knowing that those decreases are not sleeve stitches but body stitches. That’s going to make such a difference the next time I knit set-in sleeves.

I’m at the point in TheKipFee where I need to feel calm and confident when I’m knitting on it. That’s not how I feel in the evenings at all. I need to be made calm then, after a day with ThePublic and chores and doing things and fixing dinner and such. Socks are the ticket in the evenings on workdays, or working in those ends. Early mornings are my calmest times anyway and I am calmest of all when the house is beautifully perfectly heavenly sparkly.

So. Since it’s after the hump day and I really ought to grocery shop on Thursday so I don’t get home at half after famished like happens when I have to go to Walmart on Friday after 6. And since we’re supposed to get wintry mix this evening. And because I have a 9 o’clock appointment tomorrow a.m., TheKipFee will be tenderly set aside to await a sparkly house and calm hours on Saturday. No more photographs of my beauty till next week.

But in honor of it being February 1 and close to the weekend and because I’ve been pretty durn good following TheQueen’s Knitter’s Almanac I give you these: gratuitous pictures of things that tickle me.

This is the apache biker eclair. This was done pre-haircut. You can't see what he's saying but it's "sure, baby. I still respect you. See ya around. See lots of ya."

This is my dog lamp.
