Win this lovely (?) prize!
Between 120 and 150 yards (I will have a better idea once I wind it off the bobbin, and will give that more accurate figure to the recipient) of worsted-spun, three-ply merino wool. It wavers between sport and worsted weight, and is a nice, tweedy dark turquoise with flecks of everydamnthing. (For definition of the yarn weights, go here.)
What must you do to win this glorious prize? Leave me a comment, or e-mail, with suggestions for color names. Like Mermaid Tail, or Purple Trainwreck. You can include what colors it should be, or you can just give the name. I'll keep track of everyone, and next Wednesday (March 12) I will fire up the random number generator and pick someone. Multiple color names are welcome, but each person will get entered only once to keep the odds even. I'll use at least some of the name suggestions. International entries welcome; I will ship anywhere.
Thanks to the last adjustment of my medication, last Thursday, my ability to concentrate is FINALLY back, and thereby my enjoyment of many things, like reading and knitting. I started back to the gym last night, after more than a month away. We did weigh and measure first off, and it was like I never left; all my numbers were nearly identical to my last weigh and measure waaaay back in October. I got winded pretty quickly, but I hope to build back up to going every weeknight, like I was doing before that stupid idiot Colonel McCucheon cut me off all my medication in mid-December.
The Goober and Sekhmet have halted their world domination plans to declare war on each other, something like Amerca and the Soviet Union after WW2, only nastier. Hostilities commenced the other night, with incendiary Lego carpet-bombing:
Sekhmet could not be reached for comment, but I suspect will be falling back on guerilla warfare.
Trying to get motivated to change my blog template and add all the color articles to the sidebar... while I'm at it, is anyone interesting in me doing white and black, as well? Or is everyone about done with the whole color issue?
'Cause I'm reading up on Chinese art history and can go on for hours about the bronzes.
