Today I’ll try again to post a pic from Denver of Theo wearing the famous Obama-electing gansey. I’m afraid it’s too big – especially the sleeves. If it shows the slightest tendency to grow further, it’s going to have to be that kill-or-cure experiment with the dryer.
I began today with an email from granddaughter Kirsty in Beijing to say that this is her First Holy Communion day, and she’s wearing the veil I knit for her and her sister Rachel. I hope to have a picture of Kirsty in the veil soon.
Ted (comment yesterday), Catriona’s beautiful daughter is lying on the “My Weekly Baby Knits” shawl available – it says on my website – from Jamieson & Smith as a separate leaflet. I don’t know whether that fact has survived the recent upheaval at J&S, nor can I remember at the moment how I know that it’s an Amedro design. The leaflet doesn’t say so.
Mary Lou and Barca Viola, it was wonderful to see you in the ranks of Franklin’s knitters. Not just in the ranks, either -- officers. I feel I know you better now, just as I do Tamar since seeing that picture of her in the Harlot’s post.
And, Jenny, I want to know more about your acquaintance with K*rkmichael. That’s astonishing news. Will somebody crop up today with memories of Constantine, MI, where my grandmother lived?
I reached the heel flap of Rachel’s first Yarn Yard sock, forgetting to switch to the solid colour for the heel.
Today is Scarf Sunday. The sock should be ready for a photo call after Monday’s session, insh’Allah.
