Hey there Crafty Snarks. We had a great night last night. Andrew (AKA Anthony) dyed some of Max's fur with usnea. Max was an unwilling participant but coerced into willingness with the use of food and attention.
We watched a short film, Dr Horrible's Sing Along Blog. Thanks to Paul for bringing it, we need more Bad Horse in the world.
We were discussing shawls last night and how we aren't really shawl wearers, even though there are such great knitted shawls out there in the world. Well, here is a shawl that could turn me into a dedicated shawl wearer:
The pattern is here: http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEspring09/PATTshipwreck.php. Just a hint for the knitters in our group; somebody's birthday is coming up in June. That might be just enough time to get this done. That somebody whose birthday it is would even be willing to spring for the yarn and just use you for your talent. I'm just saying, that's all.
We had a splendiferous (and educational) trip to the Bear Hotel last Saturday. Stay tuned for pictures and a guided tour of our trip. Keep on crafting! Nancy
