Emmy says, "Enough with the crazy knitting already! Let's go for a swim in the frigid February waters of Rock Creek or something reasonable like that!"
This monster has been everywhere with me, including CYO basketball, starring The Boy
Mardi Gras parties in the 'hood with HOMEMADE King Cake (made by my amazing chef friend Kell
, who not only cooks "with all the burners on the stove" but is just finishing up PASTRY SCHOOL. Mmmm. Very dangerous place, his house.)
where some people really got in the spirit of things, if you know what I mean
and to the coolest school fundraiser I've seen in quite a while: Hoops on the Terrace, a teacher vs. parents basketball game held in the High school gym, complete with silly cheerleading, t-shirts, popcorn, noisemakes, and the Cha-Cha Slide at half-time. The Girlie thought the best part was singing the National Anthem with the 5th grade chorus. Oh, and the game was actually good. It was kind of being high school all over again, but without the angst.
Not only have I got somewhere with the monster project, but I have some cool things to tell you. All of which, the fabulous Gryphon
is behind. Speaking of her fabulousness, keep an eye out for the Spring issue of Knitty
First, if you are in the the mood for some Eastern Shore knitty fun, come join us on Saturday at the Frivolous Fibers' sponsored Yarn Party
. It's in St. Michael's and not only do you get to visit with and even buy some lovely fiber and yarn, you can meet some great local dyers and learn to knit, crochet, even dye and spin. I'll be demonstrating spinning and even (gulp) teaching drop spindling.
Next, go to the Loopy Ewe
to check out our first big online wholesale opportunity. Our yarns
are under Gryphon's business name, for simplicity. Mine are the non-Greek names. If you click the "0" next to the "1" at the bottom, you can see the 7 colorways that sold out in one day. Wow, that Sheri has really done a great job building up an excellent business. Someday...
In the meantime, I'll wrestle the mysterious beast away from the dog with more promises of a really good walk. Soon.
