Not a lot of time for the real entry I'd like to write. I just printed what must be the zillionth copy of the auction brochure for next week's auction, and it's still not done.
I will say, quickly, that...
- I'm not sure I'll be able to get My Charlotte done in time. The reality depresses me. It's just one little project. Why can't I find enough hours in the day to finish it? I just started the section that uses colors 3 and 4.
- The other day, I joked about starting a sock for myself from Knitting on the Road and taking a break from the bee-stripe. Along those lines, I asked M. to measure my gauge on the bees since she had a t. measure at hand. She checked it, told me, and then asked, "is that what it's supposed to be?" "Doesn't matter," I replied. "I'm going to start something else and needed to know what my gauge was in that yarn." You should have seen the look on her face. Stricken. Just stricken at the thought that her poor sock would likely never have a mate if I started another pair. She's probably right. I sat and diligently did a few rows on the second bee-stripe the other night.
- Got a real kick out of the "Many faces of Clapotis"!
