A lovely customer stopped by this morning and asked how we all were doing, as she had not seen a post from us in quite some time. I didn’t believe her until I opened up the site and saw that our last post was a full ten days ago…I guess last week was a little nuts? I wish that I could say that an earthquake and hurricane meant that lots of stitching happened, but that would be a lie. I hope that the possible end of the world proved to be more successful for the rest of you. The only thing that I have to show for it is a completed Albers Cowl..something that I have had completely done for at least a week or more but just hadn’t seamed up. Like any last minute crafter, I was motivated to finish the darn thing last night with only a few minutes to spare before we left for the Cirque de Solei show in Baltimore. I thought it would be quite festive at the show and would help keep me warm in the cold arena. This isn’t the first time that I have skipped putting on makeup or properly styling my hair because I wasn’t completely done MAKING my wardrobe for the evening. I once made two out of town guests wait for me to finish knitting a ribbed sweater so that I could wear it out that night. I freely admit that I get a bit fixated on a project needing to be done for a certain occasion and then force everyone around me to wait for me finish it before said occasion is allowed to begin. Hey, at least it forces me to finish things…as we know that is a problem.
So here it is, my Albers Cowl in all its glory. I loved this project! I have no idea what all of these yarns are…they were all scrap pieces in my stash. I know that there are several colors of Neighborhood Fiber Company. The great yellow is Sweet Georgia Tough Love Sock. The pop of red is Dragonberry from Dragonfly. The deep rich purple is Wollmeise (aka unobtainium). Ok, so it looks like I DO know what all of the yarns are!
