Bitch Ph.D. said everything I had to say on the Terry Hakker saga, and then some.
I finished the Koigu scarf and it's lovely. I gave it the lazy woman's blocking - let it hang in the shower while I showered this morning - and it grew at least 4 inches. I'll give it a real blocking with pins and everything (I knew that futon was a great idea!) this weekend, but I want to wear it tomorrow, when the temps are due to plunge from 70 (right now) to 35. Welcome to the roller coaster. We have one set of clothes in our closets (because you can't put stuff in the attic or it rots) and it encompasses tropical heat through Oh MY Gawd I Woke Up In New Hampshire. Such is Central Florida. We get cold enough to kill the pretty flowers, and the next day it's shorts time. Ya just never know.
Next up on the scarf-o-rama: Deep Red Plymouth Encore will go off to college on the
Red Scarf Project. Mistake Rib on size 8s, I may have time to do two. I wanted to do something flashier, but the "gender neutral" thing put an end to that. But other charities will be getting scarves. It's so perfect for my mental energy and satisfies the wool lust. Because the wool lust only has a few more weeks' shelf time, then it's linen and cotton.
