SHANA TOVA, Y'ALL!

(Nobody ever believes that I am from the south.)

Anyway, I will have to keep this quick. I have to work tomorrow.

The food for the bat mitzvah went over beautifully. Everything tasted divine. I make an incredible kugel, and the chocolate fountain was a lot of fun. I still don't feel like I've caught up on my sleep though, because I woke up the morning after the bat mitzvah party and it suddenly popped into my head that I had people coming over for Rosh Hashanah dinner last night and I hadn't cleaned, planned, or even thought about it.

I pulled it off. Never fear.

KNITTING



I am about 25% of the way into the Luna Moth stole. I am enjoying it -- thought it hasn't been without it's frogging moments. I don't know why I am incapable of knitting lace if anyone is in the room...or the telephone rings (irregardless of whether or not I actually answer the phone)...or the upstairs neighbor farts, or someone turns on classical music. I swear, I loose all ability to read a pattern, count to 7, or any of the other skills I need to knit lace. I've put a lifeline in since this pic was taken...I started to worry about what could happen to it.

Oh the Luna Moth looks gorgeous in black. We've all been to the frog pond and we'll all be back. Thank goodness for lifelines, eh? :)

Is it in black or the silver?

This shawl is black. Knitpicks Gloss -- 70% Merino/30% Silk. It is very pleasant to knit with.

My next shawl is going to be silver. I don't know what pattern yet. I've ordered Galina Khmeleva's "Gossamer Webs Design Collection". Maybe that will give me inspiration.

Very nice. I did a shawl a while back that had 12 stitches in the repeat. After a couple days my family was training to listen to my counting before asking a question or making a comment. They'd start talking and I'd say 7 and they'd stop until I hit 12. Do I have them trained or what!
