Bah Humbug

Important breaking news flash...
I am not a Christian. I do not celebrate Christmas. Please stop asking me what I am doing for Christmas. I am doing nothing for Christmas. If you are wondering what I am doing a week from today, feel free to ask. It's a Tuesday. I'm not working. Maybe I'll sleep in, read a book, walk the dogs... Perhaps I'll even get myself some Chinese food.

I think that come spring I'll start asking everyone what they're doing for Pesach. Then I'll fuss over them and invite them to my house to celebrate. Wait, what do you mean you're going to stay can't be alone on Passover!

Mystery Stole 3

That's right, I've embarked on my very first knit-a-long. It's Mystery Stole 3, also my first big lace project, not to mention another first, beads! Here are the details:

Yarn: Jaggerspun Zephyr in White (an exceptional bargain here in BK at Sarah's Yarns)
Needles: Size 4 bamboo circulars
Beads: Matsuno color #343 (I'd call it vanilla cream), size 8/0

Above is the center detail from Clue 2. It was tough g0ing at first, but I've got a lifeline in at row 100, and since then the frogging has been kept at a max of 5 rows or so.

For those of you who have not kept up, all activity this summer was slowed up by the weeklong vacation I took at the beginning of July at the fabulous Maimondides Medical Center Resort right here in sunny, humid, sweltering Brooklyn!

I'm starting to get back into the swing of things so keep tuned in.
