It is with ginormous regret that I inform you that the Cable and Pleat Tunic is no more. (Sobsniff). After taking a hard look at it last evening and then sleeping on my decision , I decided to go ahead with my plan to frog, let it rest and then start from scratch in the near (I hope) future. Next time, I’ll go down a couple of needle sizes, it was very loose and I knew I’d never wear it without something underneath and knowing how hot Arkansas summers are, it just wasn’t going to work. Besides, it’s not like I don’t have other WIPs to work on. I can hear The Socks On A Plane Socks whimpering to be picked up even as I type.
BUT THEN, AGAIN
A Wondrous Box arrived in the mail today, and man, is it ever going to be hard to keep my grubby paws off the goods long enough to carry out the abovementioned plan. Take a look and you’ll see what I mean!
Two hanks of incredible merino and as a little extra surprise, a sample of lovely silver silk with sequins and beads, all from Artyarns, thanks to Yarnbox. Could you stay strong in the face of this???
I’m rereading an old, old favorite, The Caine Mutiny by Herman Wouk. It still lights my dials. I read this book as a kid, maybe junior high or a little younger, probably because my parents owned a copy and I’d most likely finished my library books and then gone hunting for something else to read. This became a favorite immediately. One thing I’ll always be thankful for is that my parents never, ever put any sort of limitations on what I read and I loved to read. My dad was also a Reader with a capital R and it wasn’t unusual for he and I to be reading the same book. He was an omnivorous reader and thanks to him, so am I. Best gift ever, thanks Mom and Dad!!!!
I’m not afraid of tomorrow, for I have seen yesterday and I love today. William White
