Another charity thing. I don't ask much do I?
Q's and A's
Not to sound insensitive or anything but have you considered eating any of Hope's babies? We are talking about sunflowers and their seeds here for any new reader's out there. We aren't disgusting psychos, honest! Thanks for pointing that out Jen!
I did, but I decided against it I just can't see myself cooking Hope's babies. I want to plant some of them next year and I'm thinking of doing up little packets of the rest. More on that later. I'll give Joy to my parents and roast Chary's and Nexus' if she gets that far. The grass looked silvery this morning so that's pretty iffy. I think I'm going to plant a few of Bustle's too. She is so eager to be a Momma, it's sweet and I can't see eating her babies either. Now, I am getting really strange. I've made sentimental "pets" of sunflowers, yeesh I need to get out more.
The Hoban Family asks:
That's really cool, are you going to do the same color? (About the dragon shawl link I posted)
I do want to make that shawl, but I hear that it can be a bit complicated so it's going to have wait until I manage to get the hang of lace knitting with lace weight yarns. I was thinking that it would look really good in a deep shimmery green, purple and blue colourway or in deep shimmery burgundy. Maybe a silk of some sort to get the shimmer effect.
Dorothy, I sat and watched Calendar Girls, too! I wonder if we could do our own fund-raiser....
They'd have to use bananas for me! Nursing, I tell ya. I don't think I have the cahonies for that, although I did get a few ideas for a not naked charity calendar. I just need to get on the knitting and get a better camera. More on that in the distant future.
Edited to Add:
I was watching Trading Spaces at 12:00pm and it was the Philadelphia episode where one of the women teaches Laurie how to knit! Knitting on Trading Spaces, love it! They made a cute little cushion to put on the office chair. I also saw the Dragon episode where Dragon learns how to knit and teaches all his friends. It ends with Dragon and all of his friends knitting in the living room while Cat plays with the yarn and Ostrich gets yarn from a ball for Mail Mouse as they all chant "Knit 1, Purl 2" Sounds like an interesting scarf. I wonder if I'll knit that for my ISE 3 pal or if I'll knit something else. She's already found me out so I'm keeping the scarf a secret instead.
Jen, read this.
