Knits away!

Hi everyone! here is some yarny goodness, just for you.

First off, the pictures does nothing justice. This is really quite lovely, in real life. Mom already covets it. What is it? The back of a cardigan, using Trendsetter's Balboa and Prism's Wild Stuff.

I've not got the nerve to post closeups of my spinning, a la Laura of the Sugar Bunnies. So let's just oooh and ahhh over how lovely the single ply knits up, hmmmm? ;)

I've knit at least three or four rounds on this. In any other sock, it'd be, "Yeah? And the big deal is????" But in entrelac, that MEANS something.

You'd think, anyway.

The digital camera does the newly spun yarn no justice. It's much prettier in real life. Also, the little swatch looks sort of icky, right? Not really, when you consider it's recycled from the slubs I pulled as I spun.

The brown bag has left the building!!! Yay!! Ok, so it's still technically in the building, but zee bag, she is done. Plans for a biohazard bag are in the works.

Dr. Freud, your slip is showing! The entire article is here, but I thought this was particularly telling.

Two Sonic employees are OK after someone pulled up, made an order, then grabbed them by the arm and threatened them with a needle. According to Olathe, Kan. Police, a 19-year-old male employee reported just before 10 p.m. Saturday that a white man pulled into one of the drive-up ordering stations and placed an order at Sonic, 1265 E. 119th St. in Olathe.

The employee was going to deliver the order when the suspect grabbed him and threatened him with a contaminated syringe. The man then got back in his vehicle and fled. Police say there was an undetermined amount of loss and the victim was not injured.

At about 6:15 p.m. Sunday, a Lenexa woman reported a similar incident at the Sonic located at 8610 Pflumm Rd. in Lenexa. In that incident, the suspect grabbed the woman by the arm and spun her around and threatened her with a needle. She broke away and ran inside. The suspect fled on food. (sic)

Ha! We all knew that!

Tomorrow, a tribute to the very beloved FryGirl.
