Is what Alex was yelling earlier today at the Maryland Science Center.
I like how he is totally unfazed about the hugeness of the sculpture, and is shouting commands at something ten times his size.
Because we were away for much of the day, progress on my new project was minimal. Remember my love/hate relationship with Kate Gilbert designs? Yeah, well, I am making a Clapotis for my mother. I'm using Claudia's Handpainted Yarn and carrying with it some Rowan KidSilk Night to give some haze and sparkle.
I hope she likes it. I have found I can only knit for those that I truly love, because I end up thinking about them during the entire process of the project, from yarn selection to bind off, and with every stitch I form. I can't really waste my time thinking too much about people who don't make the cut. This is an admittedly perverse way of evaluating my friends, but it is fairly useful.
See that curled up little triangle on the needles? I am hoping it's more rectangular next time I post.
