The Revenge of the DSM

But first, World Wide Knit In Public Day.

Eight doughty knitters gathered in town, and knitted for around four hours. With sustenance breaks, of course. We only had to move indoors once, the rest of the time, umbrellas went up. We had a lovely time, but do you know, Not One Person spoke to us about what we were doing, and very few twitched an eye in our direction. The one who really did, I made the mistake of smiling at, and she scuttled off fast. Sometimes I despair of the British.

WWKIP!

I only took two or three photographs, and this one only shows half our number, but hey, it proves we ere there!

OK, so when we got home, I was really tired, and went to lie on the bed and have a little listen to my iPod. The DSM came in to see how I was and found me sleeping, so in revenge for the infamous mocha foam incident, he took this. Brace yourselves, pretty it ain't - well, apart from Neelix, who had decided to sleep on my head. Or maybe, he wanted to listen to Limenviolet as well?

Ready?

As an antidote to that ghastly sight, here's one of Barni, looking very sweet and innocent, and terribly siamesy - normally his face looks very round, not pointy. I think he was worried about the thing I was pointing directly at him.

Phew! That's better!

Ran out of time and energy yesterday and ended up knitting at a barbecue party in the afternoon instead of going to the local WWKIP celebration. Was asked by quite a few people what I was knitting, and ended up having a delightful conversation with a nice person who is hand stitching a sampler quilt. Everyone agreed I'm nuts, though, to be in the 52,000 range of stitches and planning as much as 20k more before I finish the shawl...

No comment on the sleeping photo!

Now that's what I call a "catnap"...

ouch! sorry couldn't resist that one. Your WWKIP day sounds like great fun.

I'm so glad to hear you're coming to SOAR this year! I'll be taking the Sara Lamb silk cut pile class...
