And now a word from my Knitting A.D.D.

Last week I woke up with my butt on fire to make my Sublime sweater. I have 3 "obligation knitting" projects on the needles, and more than one UFO lurking...but this morning I woke up thinking about someone who needs a prayer shawl. And so my 400 yards of green and plum two-ply singles were hustled to work at 6 a.m. along with the latest IWK. I cast on. I knit. This yarn is very sheepy, and my hands soften. This pattern isn't too hard, but because I get interupted a lot, I gave up on Icarus at noon, and started my good ole friend Kiri.

It's very pretty, but I have a sense of urgency.

Whoooh, Bets...this is spooky. That kiri I've been working on (for 796 years) is green and purple, maybe a more faded green with a light plum purple twisting through it. One of us is, I mean psychic. Mr. Bill

Sorry...I'm blog-paranoid! I have on my black cloak and dark glasses so that I can travel incognito!

It's the perfect thing for Marge's "trip." I can assure you that she will love it and be very grateful to know you're thinking about her and made her a beautiful shawl. She'll feel the good vibes you send with it. Thoughtful and caring of you, Bets. You're getting stars in your crown.

Crown, schmown! It just seems like the right thing to do.
