Bad Blogger!

Sorry, folks - I've been a bad blogger! I'm finding that Ravelry is picking up my urge to document my knitting projects and Facebook is now taking up my urge to document non-knitting stuff.

But anyway, here's some stuff that's been going on with me lately.

Hello, Roy Halladay! Thank you for completely living up to your hype and more!!

And thank you, my beloved Polanco, for the grand slam and 6 rbis!

Happy Easter.....Eggs!

These were made in a newfangled way - you squeeze some dye into a plastic bag and rub it on - weird, but so much lower-maintenance than the lineup of dye in glasses with the vinegar and all. I approve!

The trunk show at The Tangled Web was awesome! We had over 40 folks, and it was so touching to see people I knew who had come out to support me. I love you, crazy knitters! The Ganseys are all done and if you join my Momogus Knits Facebook page, you will be treated to a nice Gansey-related special.

Here are some things I've been knitting:

This is the first of three strips for the Tangled Web's Block of the Month Club. Yummy Manos yarn. With all the trillion colors to choose from I chose to work it in only 2 colors. But that's okay.

Did I post this before? This is Jared Flood's Hemlock Ring Blanket, a lovely project for a lovely friend. Cascade 220. Fun, relatively quick project.

Beaded Lace Bookmark by Nancy Knits. I do love a beaded project and also projects that use up leftovers. Took a smidge of fingering weight yarn (Koigu) and some beads. I wish it were a little longer and narrower, but it's still very pretty. Think I'll teach a class on this in the fall.

Here's an example of Diana, the Dolt Genius. This is Ene's Scarf, from Scarf Style - May/June Knitalong at the Tangled Web. I knit it in Felted Tweed (dk weight) instead of the laceweight it called for (because I dearly love old FT) and it came out twice as big as the original! I love it though. Anyway I was blocking it on the living room floor (above) and had to take it to the store by evening. When I unpinned it, it was still damp, which was problematic. It was only after taking the photo below (in the sun, with a light breeze) that I thought "AHA! I can use NATURE to dry my shawl!" But it took me an embarrassingly long time to get to that thought.

Polanco has been excellent. But what about Ibanez? He just looks like he doesn't have it. Did he get old between seasons? Charlie says he'll give him more time, but - I don't know. That pop fly in the ninth with Utley on third and one out was disheartening, especially after watching Chase turn his single into a double with smart hustle. Oh well - two out of three is OK, but they should have swept Washington.

I guess Charlie knew better about Ibanez than I did - hard as it is for me to admit that.
