orenburg lace russians
for years, the piecework magazine and yarn for the triangular warm shawl to knit, spring 2002, have been waiting patiently next to my bed.
the musk ox yarn finally won.
OMG, where have you been all my life?
delisciously soft, and the colors!
i see the kit
is available from skaska now, my pattern has the plum color in the center triangle instead of the red..
there are 2 tiny errors in the magazine chart, and no errata on piecework's site, if you knit it from the magazine, and would like my corrections, please email.
2 for one photo- orenburg lace and a saturday sky. are all you northerners jealous?
last week tom and i drove up to alabama for a surprise birthday party.
about 6 years ago, i played matchmaker to one of tom's oldest bestest friends, and a good friend of mine.
they had a lot in common. heck, they even talk the same; pat's from mississippi, and bob's from northern florida.
tried for 2 years to get them in the same place at the same time.
well, after they finally met, it was love at first site, and they've hardly been apart since the day they met :-)
tom and i were best man and matron of honor at their wedding, nearly 5 years ago.
bob threw a huge surprise party for pat's birthday, and boy was she surprised! many tears when she saw everyone, especially her adorable grand-daughter from michigan. bob did an excellent job, and i'm glad we could be there!
just look at this sunset at the andalusia alabama country club-
bob and pat have a beautiful house on gantt lake
in alabama. they have just built this huge barn for their spoiled cows ;-)
then we went on to the florida panhandle and pensacola. my son just got stationed in pensacola
. bart will be an instructor pilot there for the next 3 years. i hope he likes his new job!
here is their new house, it is adorable. we couldn't believe how much work they've already done. tiled the floors, and put in a new fence. all by themselves :-)
thanks for all the kind selbu compliments, i think i thanked everyone!
can't wait to get the book
in my hands :-0
added: anne, not anne from slc, i don't have any way to thank you for your comments- thanks!
