and a great cry was heard from the readers of Purlingswine:
"Why Ann why, did you not get the lovely and luscious D#2 to model for you this morning?! After all, this Panta was knitted for her ……don’t you love us anymore??"
Darlings – we had a recalcitrant D#2 this morning. Despite the frigid morning temps, D#2 had gone to the trouble of curling her hair and refused to put on the Panta. ~Panta Panta, dontcha wanna Panta Panta~ Remember the days of waking up hours before the school bell to attend to the coif? Obviously those days are a very distant memory for me!!
I had a very productive weekend. I made the above Panta and have started another. This is a great pattern – uses up oddments of yarn. And despite D#2’s stand this morning, is a good item if you have in your life people who don’t like to wear hats no matter what the weather.
In the further adventures of my crafty weekend ….
And then under the category of things I forgot to take a picture of this morning ….. one of the Rail Road Rib socks and the beginnings of its mate and stitch markers that I made for the ladies in my knitting class. I also took a trip to Granny’s on Saturday. Kathleen helped me to pick out a fantastic yarn for Irish Moss. She should negotiate for being paid on commission – naturally it is not what I went there to get and cost more. Just like L’Oreal and Kathleen says – I’m Worth It. Although Irish Moss is going to be for Boar. And it will fit Boar. So really, Boar’s worth it.
As I am typing this all out it is beginning to sound like a frenetic weekend full of mad knitting. I wonder if I caught what Kay’s got? read the December 8th entry.
