Hello from our City by the Bay on this semi-cold Tuesday.
Thank you for the cuff love. I really like that linen st. Princess Cupcake gifted the cuffs to her classmate last Friday. Her classmate told her thank you and put them away. Later on, the petite girl took them out was really examining them closely. She was in awe and told me how much she liked them. I told her to make sure she told my daughter who would love to hear it.
Did you have a three day weekend? The girls and I were up late watching movies we had borrowed from the library. I was still logging in yarn and took my babies to Japantown to our favorite restaurant and stores, so I'm afraid I didn't get much reading done; I apologize. I hate being behind as probably frightfully, I'm a good week+ behind.
I found out we could download Downton Abbey onto our Tivo! I've only watched the first two episodes of Season One with the hubbie. My gosh, the setting is beautifully phenomenal and their costumes fantastically gorgeous! I'm a fan now and will be checking out Downton Abbey inspired patterns on Rav. I love the drama - how it's so dignified and minus the trashy sex American soap operas have.
Now moving along...
I forgot about this project a bit because of the above. I started it yesterday at ballet. Lucy has such great, pictorial tutorials. Now I get the ripple code and will try to decode my grandmother's one day.
So this is as far as I was able to get in one day; it's not much to warn you:
LOL! Only two rows each of 126 DC in Sienna.
For those of you who hook, do you bind off the last st and then start the new color or do you start the new color when finishing the last part of the last DC? Do you crochet in ends or weave in later?
Before I sign off for the day, mahalo lui noa to Knitspiring Odyssey's newest, public followers. I can't believe it's up to 99. When I had first started this blog, I thought at least having 20-30 was a reasonable wish. I am so honored to the depths of my heart.
See ya tomorrow.
