For Katrina

Is this the style of purse that you want? I'll make it white with clear sparkly beads.
love, Emily

Angora Goats

Ben and I went to the SLC zoo a couple of weekends ago, and we saw angora goats there! They were cute in an ugly sort of way and funny. I think they also liked getting their pictures taken, because they kept walking around the pen, talking up a storm. That or they thought we would feed them.

baaaah! Posted by Hello
Their pen was encircled by an electric wire, which meant that I couldn't pet them. I really wanted to see how soft their fur was, because of course mohair comes from angora goats:

And speaking of mohair, Grace is going to make her debut tomorrow night at the Ann Arbor Knit-In.

And I'll end with this picture of our shadows and some ducks. Damn, do I miss him.

Shamrock dishcloth

Here's a little St. Patrick's cheer in June. I made this shamrock dishcloth from Lynne's yarn for the String Scrubbie Project. I used one of the patterns from the dishcloth boutique, which is on the string scrubbie project website.

I got it!!

Yes, I won the eBay yarn! But will 18 skeins be enough? I'll ponder this another time.

The Yarns Blues

I have sunk to a new low - I placed a bid on eBay for yarn. Well you see, I've realized that I don't have enough of the Debbie Bliss cotton silk aran to finish the tank that I've started. But the yarn is discontinued, so I couldn't find any merchants online that sell it. Then I looked on eBay, and lo and behold there was someone selling ten skeins on the exact yarn that I need. And no one had bid on it yet. So I did. The sale closes it a little over day, and hopefully no one else will out bid me!!
