I am so sleepy! I stayed up a little too late finishing the i-cord on my snowdrop shawl. I’m going to start the lace edging tonight.
I can’t remember what I was going to post now. Errr.
Oh, yeah (twitch), Puck’s trousers. I got to see the cloth I’ll be making the “fur” out of today. In fact, I even got to touch and cut it. Woe is me. There are two main fabrics – a shiny black stretch knit, and a sheer and whispy and slinky (I mean angel’s whisper whispy) stretchy black cloth (so, maybe not angelic, then).
I had such a fun time cutting out the practice pieces to make the fur (twitches again). At 4 o’clock (my class ends at 2), I finally made myself put the pieces down and walk away. FAR away. And then I let myself take a nap.

OMG. Ancient Egypt, Israel, and Persia. How easy is that for me? A Jewish Classics major, who worships Egyptian textiles. This is, like, far too easy. I have sooooo many ideas. Just, too many. I’m really in a jewelry mood. So, I’m thinking ancient-style jewelry, maybe a Persian style bag, and a book. Maybe. Cuz, I dunno if Cranberry is aware of my public quacking ;)
Onto the knitting! (oh, an dinner)
