Buy me some cotton and mer-i-no....
Wait a tick...those aren't the words to that song? You're kidding! Could have fooled me, considering where I was this past Saturday. Behold the power of the Stitch N' Pitch! Where a couple hundred crafty fiberistas (fiberistos?) can commingle, craft, and cheer on the Durham Bulls.
I have to confess, since I'm not from these parts, I always want to say Bull Durham rather than Durham Bulls, all because of Susan Sarandon. I tried to channel some Annie Savoy, to no avail.
|Yeah, there's only one Susan Sarandon, but I can dream.|
The yarn, the glorious yarn, is Madeline Tosh Merino Light in Stovepipe (bluish grey), Ophelia (blackberry), and Calligraphy (oatmeal-y grey). The pattern is Color Affection, which is blowing up all over Ravelry and the blogosphere. I adore it. Strongly recommend it, actually.
Next week my family and I will be at the beach, and I am looking forward to it immensely. I am not looking forward to the packing of two small children for the beach, however, yet I AM looking forward to packing up my knitting for the beach. Silver lining. The beach is totally the silver lining too, come to think of it! See you next week!
