The tones of gray, pale turquoise and pink will prevail.
Aside from it being my favorite colour, I’m tickled pink by this photograph TheBon took whilst battling my ancient digicam:
Anyway. Today was interesting. Bon and I kidnapped St M from TKS for lunch today (we didn’t make it far as it was quite nippy and I’m apparently more cold sensitive than I’d realised). At some point, on a chocolate run, Bon and I went outside (brrr) to take some “action shots” of the clapotis and lace mitts. I think I’m going to salvage my bruised pride (we shan’t talk about my recent weight gain), by putting my favorite shot first:
Right before we dashed back inside, so I might regain feeling in my appendages, Bon took two pix of my lace mitts. I have to include them both cuz I’m just crazy that way, and I like the angle of the first one:
Aside from freezing half to death and consuming too much chocolate (I assure you it was for medicinal purposes), I also helped Bon pick out yarn for Eunny’s Anemoi mittens. She’s gonna have the most kick@ss mittens ever. Seriously.
And, brownie point to me!, I actually managed to escape the yarn shop without buying yarn. I did buy a book (First Book of Modern Lace Knitting). I also looked through every lace book they had, and put ’em back. Including Victorian Lace Today (again, brownie point to me).
After that, things get a bit blurry. There was the Great Shiitake Hunt of 2006 and a very scrumptuous dinner, the preparation of which lead me to fall in love with Ariel wine. G-d help me, it’s good. It’s also non-alchoholic, so I can actually keep it in the house.
It’s 4 am. I think I’m going back to sleep again (not enough sleep last night and what could be construed as a long nap later make for a weird schedule).
