Friday again -- don't hurt me, but I had to take this quiz!
If I were a Dead Russian Composer, I would be Sergei Rakhmaninov.
I lived in the early Twentieth Century and was well known for my compositional, conducting, and piano skills, yet I am melancholy despite this talent. My famous works include my nearly-impossible piano concerti.
Who would you be?
Dead Russian Composer Personality Test
Strangely appropriate, because his Piano
Concerto #2 is one of my favorite pieces of music. It's also the musical
score to my all-time favorite movie,
Friday -- Cats and Wool
There was a discussion on my tag-board
yesterday about cats and wool -- it seems that a number of you have cats
who love wool. Izzy is no exception. Years ago I bought a small wool
oriental rug for the entryway of my house and Izzy thought it was a toy
for her -- she spent hours rolling on it, drooling into it, and trying to
bunch it up into a cat bed.
Finished the first sleeve of the fair isle
last night. I'll cut open the second sleeve steek and pick up stitches
tonight. I'll have my able photographer capture it on film (well, digital
film!) for posterity.
I updated my sock-in-progress photo -- click here.
Izzy wanted to strike a
seductive pose for you all. Yes, she is a wanton little hussy.
But you can click here
for a more sedate photo of her, showing off my fair isle progress. I'm
nearing the end of the first sleeve and ought to have it done in the next
day or two.

Monday -- Special Evening Edition
This is to make up for the crappy little blog
entry this morning. You can see a photo of my fair isle progress here.
See? Got started on that there sleeve!
And in a burst of self promotion . . .
introducing . . . my
store! Check it out and get a jump on your holiday shopping!
Below is a close-up of the neckband.
And here is a close-up of the picked-up
stitches around the armhole.
Okay guys -- I'll be going off-line for a day
or two. Hopefully next report will be that the first sleeve is done!
I made some good
progress on the fair isle. Got the body done, cut open the neck stitches,
picked up and knitted the neckband, cut open one armhole steek, picked up
stitches and started a sleeve. Pretty cool, huh?
Too bad I forgot to upload the photos to
my server so I could show you all this great progress.
