[Insert Clever Title Here]

I finished the Clapotis, but I'm not posting any more pictures until I dye the stupid thing. It's a really pretty knit, if dull. The final results will be lovely. Really. Even if I have to dye the thing black.

I might try the kool aid dyeing thing. And then I'll have a clever post title of like "electric kool aid acid test" which probably nobody will get. Except possibly Bruce.

Anyway, I have had a completely UTTERLY failed order from Webs. Totally not their faults. Well, kind of their faults, but not really. That was supposed to be for a sweater for Bruce. Eventually I will get the yarn. I swear, I've been on the phone with their very nice customer service representative, Theresa, about 16 times about this damn order. Poor lady. She will be very glad to see/hear the last of me.

So in the meantime, I am making this:

Idlewood by Cecily Glowik MacDonald
From this:

Cascade Eco + in some color or another.


  1. Wow, the new site looks GORGEOUS! I actually gasped :) Great colors.

    And thanks for the Idlewood tip, what a lovely piece. I am really lovely a lot of her patterns lately.

  2. OK, I meant to type 'really loving' not 'really lovely' up there...

  3. That yarn looks so beautiful and the tunic very wearable.

  4. Wow! The tunic is going to be gorgeous. Can't wait to see the final result.

    Love the new site - it's so cheerful!

  5. I would totally get the reference if you posted a title along those lines!

  6. Lovely tunic and lovely yarn! Not fun with ordermessups, hope it will be ok in the end. Looking forward to see the Clapotis, and I realle, really take my hat of for you for finishing the knitting :-)

  7. Just don't go with the haircut, please.
