Finished the knitting portion of the white German doily last night. Am now binding off. There are twenty scallops around the edge; binding the first one off took half an hour.
Nothing but good times ahead.
Why the sudden push? Well, partly because I need to finish SOMETHING before I lose my mind (even I get tired of looking at all these unfinished projects sometimes), and partly because I got this in the mail yesterday:
2200+ yards of silk from Habu Textiles. It is going to become Lyra, by Herbie Niebling, the Mozart of lace. That's a Ravelry link. The pattern is available at Lacis, here. I'm gonna jazz it up with some beads at the edge (at the apex of the leaves, I'm thinking), and give it to my mother-in-law for Christmas to use as a shawl. I like beads on the edges of my shawls and wraps; the extra weight makes them stay where you put them. Plus of course it looks cool.
As I recall, someone requested video of the Goober doing different emotions on command. Forget who, but we had the camera out last night and... well... you can see how clinically depressed my poor child is.
The Goob just came up to me and informed me her laugh is broken and she needs Dadad to fix it. (He is, of course, the fix-it guy around here.) He's at work right now, but when he gets home I'm going to suggest a major tickle-fest to fix that broken laugh. Poor, poor, sad little Goobie.
Otherwise, not a lot going on. I talked about bleach with a chem geek friend of mine yesterday (okay, maybe I'm a chem geek too, but I don't think I know enough to really hit geek level) and there was much talk of hydrogen atoms and...and.. I realized I kind of wanted to write a 'white' article to add to the color section. So we'll see.
